ROTHER VALLEY SCORE & 2017 BRITISH SCHOOLS' SCORE CHAMPIONSHIPS
This year's National Schools' Championship is being hosted by SYO, and will be held at Rother Valley, only 10 miles from Sheffield. Full details here. The schools championships will be followed by a 45 minute score event for adults.
The schools' event is open to all Junior & Senior School pupils Y5* - Y13. (* Y3 & 4s who can complete a white course can also take part in the Y5 competition). Children can compete individually or in pairs (Y5 - Y8) but can't be shadowed by an adult.
There are individual prizes for the first 3 in each age class and team prizes for the first 3 in the following categories:
Y5 & 6 Boys - 4 to count
Y5 & 6 Girls - 4 to count
Y7-9 Boys - 6 to count
Y7-9 Girls - 6 to count
Y10-13 Boys - 6 to count
Y10-13 Girls - 6 to count
This event must be pre-entered. A single entry form should be submitted for each school. The form can be completed by a parent but needs to be signed by the head. The entry fee is £6 per child.
The following schools already have a co-ordinator; please contact them if your child would like to enter asap (but by the 20th September) at the very latest.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Sheffield pupils to compete Nationally, and it would be great to see our local schools on the podium.
The public event will take place after the schools' event. Like the schools' event it will be a 45 minute score with start times between 1.45pm and 2.15pm. This event can be entered on the day.
We will need lots of helpers as plenty of marshalls are required along with the normal roles. Helpers will receive a free parking pass (cost £5) and will be able to run in the public score event if they wish. Please email Jacky to offer your services.
