Young Adjudicators' Scheme 2024

Published: December 20, 2023

The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators (AoBBA) are pleased to announce the return of its joint initiative with the Yorkshire Regional Brass Band Committee (YRBBC) in the promotion of the ‘Young Adjudicators’ Scheme’ at the Yorkshire Regional competition at the Town Hall, Huddersfield on Saturday 2nd March. The scheme, aimed at young people aged 16 – 21, is an opportunity to test and develop adjudication skills in a real contest setting.


The Young Adjudicators will be mentored by an AoBBA member as well as meeting with the official adjudicators to discuss their approaches to adjudication.


The Young Adjudicators will also be provided with seating near the official adjudicators’ box, a copy of the test piece score, adjudicators’ remarks sheets and results form, and band member tickets for the participant and their parent/guardian(s).


There are four places available for young people aged 16 – 21 (at the date of the contest) who wish to test their adjudicating skills. In the first instance, applications are welcomed from those who have not previously taken part in the scheme. Numbers wishing to take part are expected to be high so early application is encouraged. Anyone who wishes to participate should contact:

Head of AoBBA Trainee Adjudicator Programme
