For those that dont know Sportshall, it is a colourful noisy affair with a combination of track and field events for athletes up to and including the under-15 age group. The track events include individual running races up and down the Sportshall using turning boards at each wall. There are also some relay races, some of which include obstacles! In the field events we have jumping for distance, height and speed as well as a shot putt.

Apart from speed, and technique this competition is full of cheering, teamwork and fun. We dont have to travel too far to get involved, and its indoors always a bonus!

Sportshall plays in major role in developing our young athletes and introducing them to the competitive environment. Sportshall Athletics at WAC has lots of positives. Firstly it takes place at Canford School which means we don't have to travel far, and it is indoors so we stay warm and dry!! Traditionally we have always done well and there is plenty of cheering and support for each other. But most importantly, we always have fun!!
