*Definition of a competition/ module:
Juniors and Seniors are classified as separate competitions even if they run on the same day/night. Running over different days of the week also constitutes separate competitions; for example, if the Module run Mixed Social on Monday and then Men's, Women's and Juniors on Tuesday then this equates to 3 competitions and you will be invoiced $1050. Modules that run one grade split over two nights will only incur charges for one competition under the circumstances that the competition is split due to limited field availability.
