At U16 level we are competing in Grade A1 (the second grade of five......A, A1, B, B1, and C).

Here how it works…
- So there will be 5 different championship grades, and each of these will have a shield competition.
- therefore of the starting say 44 teams….10 will lift a cup……20 will reach a final…….40 will reach semi-finals.
- for example, take the U16 A1. 
* This has just one group of 8 teams
* each team plays each other (therefore 7 group matches each)
* in the final group standings, the top 4 sides go into the Championship semi-finals, the bottom 4 sides head for the Shield semi-finals. (each side now has minimum of 8 matches, and each side will play in a semi-final).
* winners of semi's play in U16 A1 Championship Final or U16 A1 Shield Final.
