Entries cannot be accepted without an affiliation number, so it is vital that you arrange this before submitting your entry form. Individual affiliation is only needed if you are submitting a direct entry and your school is not affiliated (e.g. home educated, or there are very few entrants from a school). Every competitor must be accompanied by a suitably-qualified coach who will take responsibility for the competitor’s performance on the trampoline. The coach does not need to be a member of the staff of the competitor’s school. The coach must be named on the entry form Should the nominated coach fail to attend, a suitably-qualified substitute may be asked to offer his or her services. If no substitute can be secured, then the competitor must not be allowed to compete. Most of the 'Officials' tasks do not require special knowledge and can be trained in under 10 minutes on the day if necessary. Manual recorders take a copy of the scores read out by the chair of the panel. Computer recorders do the same, but put the numbers into a simple computer program. Marshals work through the list of competitors on their check sheets, ensuring they bounce in the right order. If you do not fill in the ‘officials’ spaces after the 3rd and 5th entrants, we reserve the right to refuse entries listed below that space. We also reserve the right not to allow your competitors to compete if the officials nominated do not turn up for the competition. Where an official is only available for ½ a day, please enter another official's name for the other ½ day. The team manager is responsible for ensuring that their competitors are capable of performing safely on the beds provided and also responsible for the behaviour of competitors. The team manager is also responsible for ensuring competition rules are adhered to. A full set of the rules is available at http://schools.trampolining.net and it is the team managers responsibility to obtain a copy. All competition information will be sent to the team manager. Entries must be approved by the head teacher (or LEA official if home educated) No responsibility will be accepted for loss or damage to property or persons.

If you have more than one team in the same class, use B, C etc. 5 Please mark any Individual Competitors by selecting 'Yes' the 'Ind' column. This applies whether they are members of a team or not.
