Junior Events

Here are events of interest for juniors that are coming up in the next year. Unless it says, you can take part in any of these events, no matter your experience.

There is a list of competitions where you represent SYO (or region/school), and another underneath of bigger competitions and events that you might find fun to try.

A list of our own events and trainings can be seen on the SYO Events List - this list includes events that are in the Schools League. For a list of just the Schools League events, have a look on our dedicated Schools page. For a list of all events in the country, see the BOF Fixture's List, or the national Major Fixtures List To find out what all these different competitions are, you could have a look here, or ask another club member.

Compete for SYO

You will be entered by SYO for most of these events - you'll be contacted beforehand to see if you want to take part.
