The students can challenge better placed athletes on the ranking once a trimester and shall inform the reception who they would like to challenge. It will be permitted only one challenge per trimester per student. In case an athlete receives multiple challenges during the same period of time the higher ranked student’s challenge shall prevail. In case of an odd number for ranked students within a certain bracket the direction of the School may open an exception and permit that an athlete accepts more then one challenge per trimester, by doing so it prevents an athlete from not-partaking on as challenge due to a lack of opponents.
