The original RUN / JUMP / THROW
What is QuadKids
A nationally proven athletics concept endorsed and supported by England Athletics
An inclusive team event of 4 girls and 4 boys primarily for school years 3 to 8
Includes the four core disciplines of running, throwing, jumping and sprinting - hence 'Quad'
Athletes' performances are scored against results tables and the team with the highest cumulative points is the winner
It's easy to organise (in its simplest form it can be run with just two supervisors), can take place anywhere and doesn't require access to an athletics track
It can be run either within a school or club, or even on a virtual league basis
It requires a minimum of equipment; Stopwatch, measuring tape, standing long jump mat, 75m & 600m markers, and Vortex Howler throwing implement.
QuadKids regional co-ordinators can often help on the day and the QuadKids website is the resource to download results sheets and manuals - just click here
Access to the QuadKids website captures all match performance data and provides a dynamic league table of results
It is a simple, effective and inclusive way of getting more children to participate in physical activity, helping LEAs and schools meet their National Curriculum Key Stage 2/3 targets
QuadKids in action
QuadKids is currently expanding nationally with well over 10,000 schools, 100 clubs and 250,000 athletes expected to participate by 2012.
QuadKids was used in 35 counties for the School Games.
QuadKids at school level often works through School Games Organisers, Sports Development Organisers, Competition Managers and School Sports Co-Ordinators, but also via engaging local athletics clubs and enhancing the valuable school-club bridge, and providing a clear pathway for those children inspired to get more involved.
