Selecting New Team Members
For the past 7 or so years my team has had a selections process that includes an application form, and an interview. After completion of both, the applicants would be graded and a new team list would be posted. The reason this started was because a while ago, 150 students apply for the team. But for the past few years there hasn't been nearly that many people, closer to 40. So the team leaders are trying to make a new way to select the team. We also have an hours system, in which each individual member must put in a minimum of 100 hours throughout the year to attend competitions, this includes the off season. During the six weeks, a dedicated member would usually put in over 300 hours, so if you attend meetings 100 hours isn't a problem.
So, my question is:
How does your team decide on members, and who goes to competitions? Or is there even a selection process?
Thanks for the help.
