The Winner of the Division 2B Final will be promoted to Division 2A for 2020. Division 2B has existed in its current form since the 2012 league. Prior to this, Division 2 had existed as a single division of eight teams. The new division was created using the final rankings from the 2011 league. The bottom four teams from that year’s Division 3A and the top two teams from Division 3B were added to the new Division 2B.
There are currently six teams in Division 2B.
During the course of a season (from January to March) each team plays the others once (a single round-robin system) for a total of 15 games. Teams receive two points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for a loss. Where two teams are level on points, the team that wins the head-to-head match is ranked ahead. If this game is a draw, points difference (total scored minus total conceded in all games) is used to rank the teams. Where three or more teams are level on points, points difference is used to rank them.
The top two teams in Division 2B contest the final.
The bottom two teams in Division 2B contest a relegation playoff, with the losing team being relegated to Division 3A the following season. Their place in the division is then taken by the Division 3A champions, who gain automatic promotion.

WICKLOWS PREPERATIONS @SUPREME ALTITUDE & FITNESS CENTRE
Established in 2016 Supreme Altitude and Fitness Centre is a Bray based facility, specialising in Altitude training and target related goals.
Supremes unique offering is Hypoxic training; a technique aimed at improving performance by way of adaption to reduced oxygen.
Participants wear a Polar heart monitor, so they can track their heart and work rate during the class. This training takes place predominantly on spinning bikes in a heated Altitude chamber, where oxygen levels are lowered to 15%, and the temperature soars to 40 degrees plus, giving the ultimate workout and offering the following benefits. Here comes the science bit!
- Increased VO2 max (maximum oxygen intake); improved sprint ability performance in athletes
- Improved muscle hypertrophy, strength, power and anabolic response.
- Help in maintaining fitness and optimal body weight for those struggling with an injury by doing unloaded cross training during rehab.
- Enhanced acclimatisation to high altitude for a training camp, competition or challenge.
Sound scary? It’s not. We promise! Our Altitude classes are a safe, monitored environment that have proved popular across every age range and fitness level. Participants have reported improved aerobic fitness, weight loss, along with several members noticing an improvement in asthma symptoms and reduction in inhaler use.
As well as our members, Supreme Altitude and Fitness Centrehas worked with and enjoyed numerous successes connected to its conditioning programmes including: Bray wanderers 2019 Squad, Wicklow County Hurling 2019 Squad, DLR Waves LOI 2019 Squad, Title winning Professional Boxers Jay Byrne and Declan Geraghty, World and Irish Dancing Champions 2018; as well as many sports clubs in both Wicklow and Dublin.
