The ESAA Track & Field Cup is a competition between school teams

Each school can enter one team in each of the following age groups:
  • Junior Boys (at least 12, but under 14 years)
  • Junior Girls (at least 12, but under 14 years)
  • Intermediate Boys (at least 14, but under 16 years)
  • Intermediate Girls (at least 14, but under 16 years)
Ages are as at 31st August at the end of the school year in which the competition is held.
Normally Juniors are years 7 & 8, and Intermediates are years 9 & 10. Don't forget that the years advance by one during the summer holidays.

The competition is held in 3 rounds

  • Preliminary rounds are held between teams within each County - there may be a number of competitions held within each County depending on the number of teams entered.
  • The highest scoring teams in the first round competition progress to one of 7 Regional A Finals, and all other qualifiers progress to Regional B Finals.
  • The leading team from each Regional A Final then progresses to the Cup Final, together with the 5 highest scoring teams from across the Country.

Teams comprise 12 athletes for Girls, and 14 athletes for Boys, and each athlete may do no more than two events: one track and one field event; one track and the relay; one field event and the relay. All teams MUST have a relay team. Competitions are scored on a points basis where better performances gain more points.

Entering teams, and all event administration, is done online.
