What are the changes for 2019/20?
There are no significant changes to the Under 14 and Under 16 Championships. The format in these Championships will remain the same as last year, with Under 14 Tier 3 Development offering the opportunity for continued progression at 7-a-side hockey.

Following last years successful trial of a Tier 3 Championships in the Under 18s, there will be no significant changes to this age group either. It allows strong, serious, competitive clubs to enter Tier 1 (for which Tier 2 will be a Plate for early round losers). But also offers the opportunity for less confident teams to enter a level they feel appropriate for them. 

Tier 3 was introduced to allow smaller clubs to merge and create one team that might not be as competitive or serious as their rivals in Tier 1. The Tier 3 Championship will act as a plate for early round losers that are entered directly into Tier 2. The Under 18 format is now very similar to that of the popular Masters Championships at O35, O40 and O50 level. This will mean all teams get two matches in the knockout Championships.
