Changes for Sportshall 2021/2022
Due to the ongoing pandemic we have had to make some changes & certain
restrictions will also be in place. To help ease numbers in the hall at any
one time the U11s will compete first, the U13s & U15s will take part
afterwards, similar to the Regional Final set up.
Only one parent or guardian per child will permitted in the hall at any one
time (there is a viewing area upstairs for other spectators). All adults,
including officials, are asked to wear masks.
Only team mangers and officials will be allowed in the competition area.

instructed that competitors must not wear black soled shoes on
the competition floor. This rule has been set by the company who laid the
Although there will be some seating provided we are also asking people to
bring their own folding chairs.
The U13s & U15s competition will include a Club Team Championships similar
to the Kent Cross Country League:
The 3 leading points scorers in each age group for each declared team
(clubs can declare more than one team) will be totalled together from
the 2 League meetings to determine the finish team positions.
Similarly individual points scored in the 2 League meetings will be
totalled together to determine the individual finish positions, and
medals will be awarded for this.
Medals will be awarded at each meeting for the top 3 U11 teams.
For the championship U17s will be able to enter. If they are able to come
and help with the U11s they will be given free entry to compete. Medals will
be awarded to U17s but no trophies.
