Sportshall Secondary

The Sportshall Secondary Programme provides opportunity for intra/inter schools athletics competitions and the retention of young people in competitive school sport following transition.

Sportshall Secondary retains an emphasis on team competition whilst also encouraging athletes to develop individually. The focus on key skills, coupled with the inclusion of individual races and the addition of shot putt reinforce the relevance of Sportshall for those athletes preparing for the outdoor season. Standard formats are recommended for Years 7 and 8.

Partnership Activity
Each School Games Organiser is encouraged to stage an annual series of schools athletics competitions on a league basis prior to the leading schools progressing to a County Final. Full resources to support this are available as downloads.

Sportshall Secondary County and Regional Finals
Each area is invited to nominate its leading school teams to participate in the County Final. The strength of Sportshall within the athletics club setting, coupled with the opportunities for county representation in the Sportshall UK Championships, provides a great stimulus to develop competitive opportunities for the Secondary age groups.
