                          Schools Competition Calendar 2010 /11
     The Schools Competition Framework is a national programme developed by the Youth Sports Trust, to manage and
     co-ordinate the planning and implementation of competitive programmes within Halton School Sports Partnership.
     This will be achieved by using the national school competition framework for young people as the basis, and taking
     into account local priorities to:

     • Increase levels of participation in sport.
     • Provide better opportunities for young people to take part in competitive sport.
     • Ensure School-based opportunities are integrated with competitions provided by clubs, NGB’s and
       School Associations.
     • Offer consistent and quality competitive pathways, from grass roots through to elite performance.
     • Fit into local, county, regional and national needs.
     • Provide a sustainable and successful competitive structure.

     Halton School Competitions Calendar has been produced for the 2010/11 academic year.The calendar has been
     developed as a tool to communicate with primary, secondary and special schools a comprehensive programme of
     local, county, regional and national competitions.
