Quadkids Athletics Large Schools

5 June from 9:30 am - 11:45 am


All of our events will follow our new event themes: For All, Targeted and Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.

FOR ALL – These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.

TARGETED – These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.

COMPETITIVE – These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.

This event is a Competitive event and is for mixed gender teams from year 5 and 6. The intent is to support individual development in sport.  

This competition is open to large schools in the Partnership and is for Year 5/6 children, a team of 10 players (5 girls and 5 boys).

Quadkids is an exciting and easy to organise athletics concept designed to give more children the opportunity to participate in and enjoy athletics. It covers the core disciplines of running, throwing and jumping in a team format.

Teams are made up of 5 boys and 5 girls, with each athlete competing in all events. Individual performances are scored using a points table and the winners are the team with the highest cumulative points score.  All athletes take part in a 75m sprint, vortex howler throw, standing long jump and 600m run.

Download a manual to find out more about Quadkids and the rules of each event. Please refer to pages 14-17.

Don’t forget to visit the School Games website where you can download resources to support the delivery of intra-school athletics in your school.

More information regarding rules and format of the competition will be sent out closer to the event but schools are encouraged to enter early as there are only a limited number of entries for this event.

We will confirm your entry once the competition is closed.

A member of staff will meet and greet you upon arrival.
