In youth races the minimum age will be nine years of age and the maximum will be fifteen years of age, the exception being if a registered youth competitor reaches their 16th birthday after the first RSHGA member games of the season. Once having reached their 16th birthday they will then have the choice of either:
1/remaining a youth competitor until the end of the season or
2/ immediately moving up to compete in adult competition, and losing any league points already accrued during the season. If the youth athlete decides to move up to adult competition mid-season, they cannot then revert back to competing as a youth.

All athletes who wish to participate in RSHGA events must be registered with RSHGA.
Day Permit: Athletes who only wish to compete at only at one Members games during the Season may apply for a Day Permit. This should be done on the day at the event and may not be done online. The cost is £5 for a adult and free for a Youth. As its name suggests, it may be done on one occasion, per season. This is not a registration with the RSHGA, does not provide personal insurance cover and at no point will be awarded for leagues, if placed in any event at that meeting. Any further participation will require immediate full registration at the rate specified.
