U16 Championship Proposed Gradings for 2021

U16 Championship Proposed Gradings for 2021

Mon, 16th August 2021

I attach the proposed 2021 under 16 Championship gradings for both codes.

For the year that’s in it CCC2 will go with the following structure which will see about one third of the teams that enter reach either a Championship or Shield Final.

  • Each Championship will have 12 teams per grade.
  • Split into 3 Groups of 4 Teams
  • Of the three Group Winners, two of them will proceed into the Semi Finals, the two selected by drawing of lots (They will also have Home advantage).
  • The three Second Placed Teams along with third Group Winner will take part in Quarter Finals (the third group winner can’t be paired with 2nd place from original group but will have home advantage)

The same logic above will apply to the Shield competitions and apply to teams finishing 3rd & 4th in their group.

The structure for the following competitions will be confirmed once grading finalised:

  • U16 Football "F" Championship
  • U16 Hurling "D" Championship
  • U16 Hurling "E" Championship

CCC2 will accept feedback on these proposed gradings up to 3pm Wednesday 18th August from a Club Officer only and the request must be channeled through your juvenile secretary.

In seeking a change to these proposed gradings please indicate the Club Team who should take your position and the reasons why your proposed change should be accepted by the committee.
