The 2018 Junior Leaderboard has been a massive effort to put together this year.

Volunteers have come together to check on all results and hopefully, have all the correct information received from all the clubs to place on the Leaderboard. The jumping is still incomplete but should have this updated shortly with the individual awards.

If you should find your results incorrect, please email me your result discrepancies. [email protected] .The close off to validate your entries will be COB Friday 14th December. Anything after this date will not be changed on the Leaderboard, and the results will then be final.
