Sportshall Awards

GAC Sportshall Award Scheme for Years 1-6

The Sportshall Season starts in September and finishes in March. Our Sportshall team coach the young athletes in the small hall at The Meres on a Monday evening from 6-7pm. During that time we test them on the different events to show them how they are improving. On the runs, the athletes take part in 1 lap, 2 lap and 4 lap races. Other events are Timed Balance over 60 seconds, Speed Bounce, Vertical Jump, Sit Throw and Chest Push with a 1kg ball, Javelin, Long and Triple Jump.

In the photograph you will see the young athletes having just received their certificates which show the different standards they have achieved.

From the beginning of April until September the athletes train outside on the running track on a Wednesday evening 6 – 7pm. Here they will be coached on the outdoor events. If you are interested, come along and have a go. You do not have to be a good runner with jumps and throwing events to take part in.
