We spend quite some time analysing VJBL results to do our best to provide good grading. We ask Associations/Teams to provide information which is helpful for grading. The organisers reserve the right to re-grade if the information supplied is misleading. The organisers reserve the right to combine grades, or to cancel any grades if insufficient entries are received.
A GRADE – Recommended for teams in VC, VCR or VJL1 grades of competition within the VJBL. There will be multiple ‘grades of competition’ within A Grade (subject to team registration numbers).
B GRADE –Recommended for teams in VJBL 2-5 grades of competition within the VJBL. There will be multiple ‘grades of competition’ within B Grade(subject to team registration numbers).
C GRADE – Recommended for teams in VJL6+ grades of competition within the VJBL. There will be multiple ‘grades of competition’ within C Grade (subject to team registration numbers).
We welcome warmly domestic teams, and we have a special grade or grades for them in most age groups. Where teams believe they are strong enough, they may enter into the higher grades. In some age groups we have found domestic teams can be combined with lower VJBL teams with no adverse impact on domestic teams.
Domestic Grade 1 – Recommended for teams in A or B Grade of their domestic competition. There may be multiple ‘grades of competition’ within Domestic grade 1.
Domestic Grade 2 – Recommended for teams in C or D Grade of their domestic competition. There may be multiple ‘grades of competition’ within Domestic grade 2.
