The kids compete in teams of five and compete in seven events on the day. If you want to compete with someone in particular, email me at email@example.com when you’ve registered so I can make notes. We put the teams together after the entries have closed. Teams can be boys, girls or mixed but they all compete together.

I know we have a lot of new members in these age groups, but please don’t be scared to join in the fun. No experience necessary!
- Hurdles Relay – the kids do a hurdles race and run back down the side of the hurdles and tag their team mates – just like a normal relay.
- Long Jump Challenge – kids do a standing jump for distance and we add up all their distances to get a team score.
- Throw for Target (Vortex) – kids throw a vortex and aim to get it into some baskets for points, they get points depending on how close they get to the baskets
- Discus bowling – they roll a discus into a scoring zone for maximum points
- Throw for distance (Shot) – they throw a soft shot put ball into a scoring zone for points
- Slalom Run – running in and out of poles, zig zagging and tagging their team mates – a relay.
- Sprint Combination Run – the final event of each session is a relay where one kid runs 200m and the other four run 100m on the round track. Was a great fun event last year.
