Whilst we can’t meet up this month, we would like to invite you all to take part in the Quad Kids Athletics competition which you can run in your own school during your PE lessons throughout September.
WHAT IS QuadKids?
Is a new exciting, easy to organise athletics concept designed to give more children the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the core disciplines of athletics.
Is specifically designed to be inclusive, competitive, quick, fun and simple to run.
Can be used by both schools and clubs, as part of a County Championship or inter club league.
Is primarily a team based quadrathlon competition where individual performances are scored using a points table and the winners are the team with the highest cumulative points score.
Can be run for individuals.
Allows all athletes to take part in a 50m / 75m sprint, 400m / 600m run, standing long jump and mini vortex howler throw.
Can take place anywhere, on an athletics track, school field, football pitch or tennis court.
4 or 5 Boys and 4 or 5 Girls compete as a team with the scores of the top 4 boys and top 4 girls over the four events added together to give the team score.
More than one team can be entered from each school or club.
The four events can take place in a rotational sequence.
