Event description

Description

In partnership with the Sportshall Associates, the Greater Manchester Local Organising Committee proudly present the Sportshall Greater Manchester Schools Year 8 Competition. This Secondary Sportshall event builds on the Primary experience and offers an ideal solution to the retention of young people in competitive school sport following transition. Recommended and endorsed by England Athletics, the event offers the opportunity for schools to progress from SGO area competition to County and Regional Finals.

The emphasis is very much team based, however it also encourages athletes to develop individually. The focus on key skills, coupled with the inclusion of individual races and the addition of shot putt reinforce the relevance of Sportshall for those athletes preparing for the outdoor season. Standard formats are adopted and all athletes will have the opportunity to compete in both track and field events. The competition involves boys and girls being scored separately enabling single sex schools to compete on an equal footing.

The School Games competition is open to all schools; however they must have qualified through their local SGO area/borough heats (Level 2) in order to progress to the County Final.
