How can a Club win a team prize?

There is an Open team competition for males to which the Clubs can count their best 6 athletes of any age group. The club with the highest number of athletes points is given 20 team points. The next gets 17 points, the next 16, the next 15 and so on downwards. At the end of the season the clubs can add together their best 10 races worth of team points to find the best team.

Similarly there is an Open team competition for females to which the Clubs can count their best 4 athletes of any age group per race and the best 10 races count towards a total of team points to find the best team.

There are separate scores for teams of male or female Masters. The males can count the best 6 athletes and sum the best 10 races of the season. The females count the best 4 athletes and also sum the best 10 races of the season.

An incomplete team will still be scored and awarded team points if it finishes in the top 18 Clubs scored on athletes points.
