Rules for Junior School Teams  - 10-11-12 yr olds
In 2016 we allowed for the first time Juniors to compete in the Peak to Peak and with great success.
I worked with two mums in Qtn to establish some guidelines for the ‘kids’ racing, which helped take some of the responsibility of me and be sure that the parents were actively involved in with their kids, in the build up and the race.
It was establish that a parent should accompany the kids at all times and in fact we allowed some shorter distances and change overs for the kids (as below)

An example of how it worked is below
The names to the right will be “actively” supervising each child. ie in most cases a parent is actively participating and in the paddling it is recommended a double kayak, or at the minimum a parent paddling alongside the junior competitor. This team chose to do some shorter distances for the kids
