UTA Competition 2023 Little Dragons
June 24, 2023
The Highfield School
This competition is for all UTA students from Little Dragons to seniors. This is to be held at Highfield School, Highfield, Letchworth.
Explained below is what’s to be expected of the Little Dragons and we will practice in their lessons. All Little Dragons get a participation medal as well as the top three winners for Gold, Silver and Bronze.
This is a great opportunity to test your skills in a friendly competition with fellow UTA members helping to raise much-needed funds to enable the delegates who have been successful in being selected to represent the UK at the next international event. Some of whom started as a Little Dragon and some are already national and international champions. One day you/your child might be in the same position.
The UTA take pride in funding its competitors through a selection process and events like these help that funding and enable us to offer this great gift.
