BSSC Competition Rules

The championships are for individuals by year/gender, and for teams by school/gender as explained here

Any school is welcome to enter a team to compete at either event, subject to the children being able to read an orienteering map competently and be confident in using basic navigational techniques and to have competed in at least three orienteering events at the appropriate standard for their age.
