Notes for the 2021 competition
  • The 2021 competition will offer a 2 piece and group sequence only, this is to take into account the fact that many schools are recovering from COVID. The 5 piece will be reintroduced in 2022. 

  • There will be two levels of competition - novice and advanced. 

  • Schools that normally enter the 2 piece competition should enter the novice section while schools that normally enter the 4 piece competition should enter the advanced section. If you are new to the competition then you can choose!

  • All boys enter the same competition. There is no difference between novice and advanced.

  • The group sequence is open to all girls teams, whether novice or advanced. This is a stand alone competition.

  • The U13 girls sequence is different from the U9, U10, U11 girls sequence.

  • Please ensure that you check your specific age group boys/girls and novice/advanced rules before embarking on training.
