Young Ringers

The YACR Young Ringers are also known as the Yorkshire Tykes. The group is open to all young people aged 18 and under from any of the YACR Branches. Minimum standard is to be able to control a bell unaided. Parents and adult helpers are welcome to come and help.

The Tykes meet on the 2nd Sunday afternoon of each month and visit various Association towers for a general practice or to ring quarter peals. The ringing is usually run by one of the young people and is all aimed at what they wish to ring.

The Tykes also represent YACR in the Ringing World National Youth Contest each year. On 1st July 2017 they successfully overcame 18 other teams to win the Whitechapel Trophy in Birmingham. They will defend the title on 7th July 2018 when the contest will be based at Southwark Cathedral in London. Congratulations to the rising stars of YACR.
