Individual schools may enter the ESAA Cup competitions in Cross-Country or Track & Field.

A county round takes place, held at one or two venues depending upon the number of schools entered.

High scoring teams from the counties then compete in regional finals from which high scoring teams compete at national finals.


The competition is for the  under 14 and under 16 age groups and thus is viewed as a stepping stone for other schools’ competitions.


The closing dates for entry are June for Cross-Country and February for Track & Field.
