For those that don’t 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 don’t have to travel too far to get involved, and
it’s 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!!
