Following a number of classification queries at National Events, NASRPC decided to do a review of the National Classification Database.
This has been passed down through various hands over the years, but only contains peoples classifications, no context as to how they got them.
When we investigated some of the queries, we found they had, in fact, the wrong classification.
To fix this : we have now entered all historical scores for Irish competitors, back to the start of 2008, into the official National Leaderboards.
This allows us to a do a number of things.
Firstly, it allows is to calculate everyone’s National Personal Best, in all ranking disciplines.
Secondly, it allows us to identify everyone’s National Classification,
Thirdly, it allows us to calculate the current Irish Record in each discipline.
Also, each Leaderboard highlights the “potential” Championship finalists
Finally, The GRSB1500 and GRCF1500 Leaderboards highlight those who meet the minimum scoring criteria for National Team Selection.
o The Classification bands for each sport
These are public resources so will always be available to view and makes the calculation of classifications, ranking & records fully transparent.
They will be updated following each ranking event.
We hope this will help clarify how people got their classifications and where they stand in terms of qualifying for Championship Finals or National teams.
As always, your input is both welcomed and sought.
