All athletes regardless of their level of fitness level or ability are welcome - no pressure will be put on any child to compete at any particular event if they choose not to compete at the last minute.The long jump and turbojav are more in the way of fun events . No child will be too far behind in a 60m race. The longer distances are left to the end of the meet so as to allow those who do not wish to compete not to feel left out. Long jump will be a sand foot mark for U9 to U11 and from the board for u12. Due to the gravel surface all races will be a standing start.
