Schools invited to enter West Devon Quad Kids athletics event

South West Youth Games 2017, 9 July.  - PHOTO: Sean Hernon/PPAUKAll schools are invited to the West Devon Quad Kids athletics event at Tavistock Track on Friday 4th May.

This is always hugely popular with those that take part and we have managed to acquire a curriculum time spot to hold it. It will start at 12.45 and finish by 3.30pm. Teams to arrive by 12.30pm.

It is earlier than usual and it is close to the SATS exams but we cannot hire the track during the A Level exam period as the college feels pupils may be disturbed by the noise.

We chose a Friday afternoon so there was the least disruption possible to SATS revision.

Teams of 4/5 girls and 4/5 boys (min 4, max 5) will take part in the 75m sprint, long jump, vortex throw and 600m run. The top 4 of each count towards the team score.

Submit names of your team members by Monday 30th April. B teams may be possible, we will see how many schools enter first. The winners will represent West Devon at the School Games County Finals at Brickfields, Plymouth on Wednesday 20th June.

There is absolutely no parking on the college site. Tavistock Community Football Club allow us to use their car park, next to the Crowndale pitches. Parents must not drive into the college grounds before 3.30pm. Marshals at the entrance will enforce this.

A volunteer from each school will be needed to run the event smoothly.
