Sportshall Secondary Awards

Secondary -> Sportshall

The Eveque Sportshall Development Team have worked in close partnership with British Athletics to develop the national Secondary athletics awards programme / baseline fitness test. The British Athletics Awards consist of three sections; Sportshall, Endurance and Track and Field.

The British Athletics Sportshall Awards



The British Athletics Sportshall Awards are based on a series of twelve familiar Sportshall activities designed to provide a well-balanced measure of skills and an ideal baseline fitness test. To complete a Sportshall Secondary / High School Athletics Awards, children must complete any 5 events (for a Pentathlon Award) or all 10 Secondary events (for the Decathlon Award). The Sportshall Awards poster (detailing the events) can be found to the right of the page.

The British Athletics Sportshall Award Scheme intends to provide teachers with a framework for curriculum time delivery of Sportshall Athletics and encourages skill development and fitness improvement.
