Following discussions in Tankavaara (FIN) and consultation with the Competition Committee Chair Esko Orava, we decided to maintain the same protocols for the official U12 Children’s Category as for the U16 Junior Category.
The U12 will serve as a bridge between 0-16 years in terms of official status. Winner will be declared World (or EU/National) Champion.
No differences will be applied in terms of regulations, except for the age limit.
The competitor must not have reached the age of 12 at the time of the competition, i.e. the birthday must be after the date of the competition.
