The Finals will run from 3pm to 5pm. There will be a final in all age categories.

We will be using the IFSC categories for age. Please read the following information carefully to make sure your child is eligible to enter the competition. You are eligible if you were born between 2000 and 2009.

There will be 5 age categories with a male and female sub-category in each.
