The trophies are presented at this competition as it is the only annual event ran by the North District.
The competitions are: Voluntary Level 5: 8 year olds; Voluntary Level 4: 9 year olds; Voluntary Level 3: 10 year olds; Voluntary Level 2: 11 year olds (not awarded this year); Scottish Championships: Espoir (12 & 13 years), Junior (14 & 15 years) & Senior (16+ years).
