Teams to represent England at the Schools International Athletics Board (SIAB) competitions between England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland are selected by the ESAA Team Managers after the Cross Country and Track & Field Championships.

There are teams at Junior and Intermediate level, and normally the leading athletes at the National Championships are selected. The track and field individual events international competition is only provided for the intermediate level.

2019 track & field SIAB competition

The 2019 track and field edition will take place at Swansea University Athletics Stadium 20 July 2019. The timetable is available for download at the bottom of this page.

Humberside Schools Athletics will have one athlete from our County, Archie Yeo in the long jump.

Previous track and field SIAB competitions

2018 Grangemouth, Scotland - Humberside athletes: Archie Yeo, triple jump, 2nd

2017 Dublin, Ireland

Where finances permit, the ESAA may also select a small team to compete at the World School Games - this team is selected by the ESAA Team Managers based on performances by athletes over the past year whilst also taking into account various other factors such as perceived future potential and general standards of behaviour. There are no qualification standards and there is no qualifying competition - selection is entirely at the discretion of the Team Managers. Because the cost of taking a team abroad is so high and the ESAA has very limited funds, only a few athletes may be invited to participate.

The ISF Jean Humbert World Schools Cup is an athletics competition between school teams. A school is selected to represent England by the ESAA Team Managers. Selection is based on the school's team performances in competitions during the year.

For additional information please refer to the ESAA website

We are pleased to announce the Humberside Team for the National T&F event in Birmingham.

Well done all athletes selected, please check your emails for further details and instructions.

The committee discussed at length the criteria for selection and it was unanimously voted that the entry standard had to be achieved. We are aware that there are a number of athletes very close to the standard, our advice is to find a meeting this weekend, perform your socks off and make the standard! If this happens please ensure you take a photo of the official result card and send it immediately to Humberside schools - we can accept them until Tuesday evening.

Vests and shorts will be provided

We are very aware that many find the shorts uncomfortable. You may wish to wear your own shorts under the provided Humberside shorts or provide your own. If you provide your own shorts (and wish to only wear your own shorts) these must be mid/royal blue not navy blue (or black or any other colour)!.

Should you choose the latter, they must be checked with your team manager to ensure that they comply with our declared colours.

All visible clothing must be county colours i.e. yellow and royal blue...this also applies to t-shirts worn under vests.

Items required on the day:

  • 4 safety pins for your number
  • Food and drinks for the day
  • Warm and waterproof clothing for before and after your race – “wellies” for walking the course!
  • Money if you wish to buy souvenir clothing

If your circumstances change

Should you become unavailable through injury, illness or unforeseen circumstances, please get in touch immediately so that a reserve can be called.

The ESAA operate under the rules of British Athletics and the IAAF, therefore athletes taking part in any ESAA competition are subject to the same regime of random drug testing and sanctions as anyone else in the sport. It is a condition of entry into events that athletes (with the consent of parents/guardians) agree to subject themselves to these rules.

Testing is under the control of the independent National testing body and the ESAA have no control over what they do. The ESAA provide facilities at events for drugs testing to take place when asked to do so by the testing body, and many athletes have already been tested at ESAA National Championships.

The ESAA continues to stress their complete disapproval of the use of any substance designed to gain unfair advantage in the sport.

Further information about the drugs testing regime.

Over-The-Counter Medicines

Just because you can buy a medicine at a supermarket or pharmacy doesn't mean that it does not contain substances which are prohibited for use by athletes. Check medicines (including travel sickness pills) at GlobalDRO - simply enter a few details about the Sport and in which country the medication was purchased and you can then search the Prohibited List, either by brand name or individual ingredient. You can also check your medication at UKA.

Food Supplements and Herbal Remedies

Herbal travel sickness remedies such as 'Travella' cannot be checked using GlobalDRO as these are classed as supplements. The manufacture of supplements is not regulated in the same way as medications, there is never a 100% guarantee that they are free from prohibited substances and great care should be taken. UKA has provides additional clarification on supplements.

Age groups for ESAA events

The age limits for ESAA Cross Country Championships, Track & Field Championships, and Combined Events Championships are:

Junior 13 years and under 15 years of age on 31st August at the end of the current school year

Intermediate 15 years and under 17 years of age on 31st August at the end of the current school year

Senior 17 years and under 19 years of age on 31st August at the end of the current school year

The age limits for ESAA Schools Cup competitions are:

Junior 12 years and under 14 years of age on 31st August at the end of the current school year

Intermediate 14 years and under 16 years of age on 31st August at the end of the current school year

Notes relating to all competitions

The school year is deemed to run from September to July, so August at the end of current school year is the August following the end of the summer term, irrespective of whether some schools actually start their new year in August.

Although the Combined Events Final is held in September it is considered to be in the same school year as the previous regional rounds which lead up to the final, thus age limits are those which apply at the time of the regional round.

Athletes may only compete in the age group corresponding to their age. In particular this means:

athletes cannot compete in a higher age group athletes who are younger than the Junior age group cannot compete

In accordance with the body and also the spirit of the Data Protection Act 1998, we guarantee that we will only ask you or your school teachers to supply personal data which is actually needed to enable us to process your entry for the specific event you are involved with, and we guarantee that any data you enter here will only be used for that purpose.

We rely on their guarantee for the security of data held in their systems.

Your data is processed on the HSAA webserver and stored in an encrypted format so that it is not human readable.

The HSAA does not use cookies in any data transfer on the internet.

What do we do with your data?

The data we ask teachers and pupils to give will only be used as follows:

Your Name and Sex

These might be published in an event programme, on tee-shirts, and will appear in the results of events, both in printed form and online. Results may be sent to newspapers or magazines for wider distribution, or published in a brochure printed on behalf of the event organisers which may be mailed to each participant in any event. This data may also appear on TV where events are televised.

Your Address

This will only be used by County, Regional, and National Team Managers to send you the details necessary to enable you to participate in the event you are selected for, and to receive any subsequent post-event certificates, results, or other 'goodies' provided by the event organisation or sponsors of each event. While any such mailing might contain sponsor's advertising material, this will be controlled by the event organisers.

Your address will NOT be made available to sponsors, unless you specifically give us your permission. If sponsors wish to communicate with you, this will be controlled by the ESAA or the HSAA.

Your town, school, and County, might be published in event results and might be shared with your local newspapers so that they can feature specific pupils in specific events. Any disclosure to the press is accompanied by the requirement that they use this information only in order to report on the activities of school pupils relating to HSAA & ESAA events and that they will not use the information for any other purpose.

Your town, County, or Postcode might be used to provide sponsors with aggregate data about how many entries come from different regions. This information will not contain any specific data about you or any other identifiable person.

Your age

HSAA and the ESAA needs to know your date of birth in order to verify which age group you belong to. We consider this to be sensitive personal information and this information will not be disclosed to anyone other than Team Managers and the organisers of each event. The HSAA will never publish dates of birth online or in any other form.

Age data will be used and published in the results of events at the most general level possible - eg. age group not actual age

Your team or school

For many events this information is required to determine team competition prizes. This data will appear in published event programmes, tee-shirts, results, and perhaps on TV at televised events. If this causes a problem for you, you are advised to notify your team manager and appropriate steps will be taken to anonymise such information.

Phone numbers

We might ask you to disclose one or more phone numbers. They will only be used by team managers and event organisers to contact you in case of difficulty processing your details, or if the organiser needs to inform you of any last-minute change to arrangements already sent to you by mail. Your phone numbers will never be sent to anyone other than team managers and event organisers without your explicit permission, and under no circumstances will they be used for tele-marketing or any other purpose not directly connected to the event you are involved with.

Email address

You may be asked to give us your email address. This might be used to send you confirmation of team selection and might also be used by the event organiser to inform you about any last-minute changes to the event. Event organisers might wish to email you next year to inform you of details of events. These are the only times your email address will be used without your explicit permission. However, event organisers may also wish to be able to offer you further information, including that from their sponsors, and might also have a regular newsletter they would like to send you from time to time. In these cases, you will be offered the option to include yourself in these mailing activities, and each mailing from them will include instructions on how to remove your address from their mailing list.

You will never automatically be included in any mailing list.

Other data

Event organisers may request that you supply other non-sensitive data such as tee-shirt size, shoe size etc. You may also wish to request details of other facilities they may be providing for you. Your responses will be treated as if they were sensitive data and will be given the same level of protection as defined (above) for your phone numbers and email address.

Changing your data

Once your details have been entered into an event by yourself or by a teacher or team manager, any changes to your details must be notified to the person responsible for entering your details into the ESAA website systems. In the case where you register yourself online into the ESAA website systems, it is your responsibility to keep the information you register up to date. The ESAA cannot accept any responsibility for any failure in communicating with you if you fail to update your registered details correctly.

Photographs of ESAA events are published in the athletics press, local media, on the ESAA website, and possibly on TV too. All ESAA photographs are taken in accordance with guidelines relating to photos in schools published by the Information Commissioner with regard to the Data Protection.

Photographs and videos can be taken by the public from public areas for personal use only. Photographers at ESAA events wishing to publish photos in the media or in any other form (eg. internet websites), or wishing to use them for anything other than personal use must be officially registered and accredited by the ESAA.

It is not possible to prevent photographs of any particular individual from appearing in the media. If this is a problem for you, you are advised not to take part in the event. If any parent wishes a particular picture of their child appearing on this website or the ESAA website to be removed they can request this via the 'contact' link on the relevant websites.
