Dynamik Schools Competition

The Dynamik National Schools Competition is an English league with age groups from Under 14 all the way up to Under 19 for both girls and boys. This gives every age group in secondary school the chance to compete outside of their normal PE classes.

The finals are usually held in March and May where the final teams battle it out to be crowned the Dynamik National Schools Champions!  

We have also linked with the Youth Sports Trust’s School Games who have helped us put on county and school events to give lots of opportunities for people in education the chance to have game competition experience.

How it Works

The competition consists of pools of teams who compete against each other to reach the regional rounds. This then leads to semi-finals and to an overall final in which the best two battle it out to be crowned champions. 

Alternatively, the local county will organise and host the school or county competitions, and these count as the initial county round. The winners of these county competitions then enter the at the regional stage of the competition and join the winners of the pools. From there a new journey begins, as winners from the regional round, then join the zone round, with the overall winners from each zone (North, Central, South and London) compete in the final fours event.
