This year each entry automatically includes eligibility into the team event where three or more students from a school have entered an event and are in the same age group.


Entering the BSSPC 2019-20 offers talent identification opportunities to help aspiring athletes get their first step on the ladder. It also provides fun competition for athletes who want to just give the sport a go.

GB Athlete ambassador, James Miller, said:

“When I took part in the Championships, the best bit was meeting friends and making new ones. The team spirit made it such fun! There was always a great competitive atmosphere, but it was always fun, welcoming and there were lots of people there to help.”
