We spend quite some time analysing VJBL results to do our best to provide good grading. The large number of entries assists in helping this process. 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 re-grade due to the number of teams entered.
A GRADE – Recommended for teams in VC, VCR or VJL 1 – 2 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 3-6 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 VJL7+ grades of competition within the VJBL. There will be multiple ‘grades of competition’ within C Grade (subject to team registration numbers).
Domestic Grade – 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 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. (subject to team registration numbers).
