The Yvette Baker Trophy and Shield are the premier Junior Inter-Club competitions for English and Welsh orienteering clubs. They are named after Britain's first World Orienteering Champion Yvette Baker, who won Gold in the Short Distance event at the World Championships in Scotland in 1999.

There are two competitions held each year, that take place at the same event:

  • The Trophy (YBT) is for larger clubs, with teams of 9 runners to count

  • The Shield (YBS) is for smaller clubs, with teams of 5 runners to count.
