Team Managers select teams to represent the club so it’s a good idea to use open competitions to get your performances logged on the power of ten web site. https://thepowerof10.info/ (the national ranking database)
County / Regional / National Championships
There are County, Regional and National Championships held across the season. You will need to meet residential or birth place eligibility requirements to enter, and for the higher competitions (regional or national) you will need to have achieved a qualifying standard this season.
You may be selected to represent your school in a district level competition (for example Bristol or South Gloucestershire) – you won’t need an EA number to compete for your school.
If you do well, you could go on to represent your district in the county championships, and from here, county teams are selected to compete for Avon, Gloucestershire or Wiltshire at South West Schools or even English Schools (which is shown on the telly!), although you will need to have achieved a qualifying standard – check out the notice board in the club house for details of what to aim for.
