In light of current circumstances, the Juvenile committee have taken the decision to postpone all 3 Juvenile indoor championship days currently fixed for the 28th/29th March and the 4th of April. The hope is to hold these on the 26th April (day 3 events), the 2nd May (Day 1 events) and 3rd May (Day 2 events). With this in mind the closing date will be moved to the 19th April. The entry system will be updated accordingly. Should it be a case that the championships cannot be held on these dates they will  be cancelled for 2020 and any entries completed will be refunded.
