Sportshall Parallel

The Sportshall Parallel Disability Team Challenge provides a flexible disability athletics format for athletes of all abilities.

The format is based around the Sportshall Award scheme, with each England Athletics Athlete Grouping having suggested event adaptations and a set of Points Tables. An athletes total points are then converted into an Award using the Sportshall Pentathlon Award tables.

The competition format allows each team to rotate around the following Field events with each athlete completing each event:

  • Standing Long Jump
  • Speed Bounce
  • Hi Stepper
  • Target Throw
  • Chest Push
  • Javelin

Once all teams have completed all the events a series of relays including 4 x 1 Lap and 4 x 1 Lap Hurdles relays (with each athlete competing at least once) brings the event to an exciting finale.

The suggested Team Size is between 8 – 12 athletes and athletes from Years 4 – 13 can compete (ideally with separate Primary and Secondary competitions).
