You choose which sport to do and in which order.


How will the throwing and jumping work?
Throwing will be vortex and Jumping will be from standing. The athlete will throw or jump three consecutive times and the longest measurement will be recorded.
There will be a practice area for throwing and jumping so people come to compete warmed up. The practising is the responsibility of the athlete.


How will the sprinting work?
Sprinting will be down a running track with 8 lanes. Each athlete will be invited to run three times, U11's run 75m and U13's upwards run 100m. Of the three attempts the fastest time will be recorded.


How will anyone know if I’ve completed a sport?
After each sport you will have a coloured stamp or pen mark made on your number to show you have completed that event.


What happens if not all my distances or speeds are recorded?
