 How do our students enter the National Championships?

Every college should have received an invitation to the online entry system from Use the link in the email to access the form.

It is the same system that was used for regional tournaments and league and cup entry, so hopefully you will be familiar with it, but if there are any problems please contact your Regional Operations Officer.

Please remember to read the information in the homepage before completing the form.

 What is the deadline for entry?

All entries must be received on the online entry system by Friday 27 January 2017. Amendments to entries can be until Friday 3 February 2017.

Any alterations that occur after 3 February 2017 must be approved by your Regional Operations Officer. The college with the original entry will be responsible for paying the invoice but will reclaim the fee from the college providing the replacement competitor(s).

Hopefully there will not be any withdrawals from competitions, but if there are, please let your Regional Operations Officer know ASAP so that the runner up can take their place.
