2017 Greater Manchester School Games Year 5/6 Quadkids
Wed 12 July 2017, 13:30 – 16:00 BST
In partnership with the Quadkids, the Greater Manchester Local Organising Committee proudly presents the Year 5/6 Greater Manchester Quadkids Competition.
QuadKids is an exciting athletics concept designed to give more children the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the benefits of track & field athletics and also to identify the stars of tomorrow. Specifically designed to be inclusive, competitive, quick, fun and simple to run, QuadKids is a team based quadrathlon competition in which each athlete does a sprint, a middle distance run, a long jump and a throw.
Recommended and endorsed by England Athletics, the event offers the opportunity for schools to progress from SGO/Borough level competition to a County Final.
The emphasis is very much team based, however it also encourages athletes to develop individually. Standard formats are adopted with the time/distances for each event being scored against a standard points table
