Calling all clubs
The new 4J Studios Virtual SUPERteams Challenge started earlier this week and a number of clubs have signed up and started lodging results.
There’s still time for clubs to register ahead of deadline on Sunday (24 May).
However, you will have to be quick to get your young athletes to complete their sprints event before we move into Week 2 – and the Throws event (which starts on Monday).
At clubs who have already registered with us, parents should be helping team managers by forwarding results from Week 1 Sprints.
The 4J Studios Virtual SUPERteams Challenge will be delivered by clubs, with team managers, coaches and club volunteers handling athlete registration, results and scoring in a club-based competition held over a four-week period.
As in the traditional SUPERteams format, all athletes would be expected to complete all four events that make up the SUPERteams competition. Points will be awarded based on these performances.
Throughout the four weeks, club results will be added to the National SUPERteams leaderboard, co-ordinated by scottishathletics.
The top four results in each gender will make up a club’s ‘A’ teams, the next four the club’s ‘B’ teams, and so on.
The scottishathletics Events team will calculate team scores to produce a national team result, making this both an individual challenge between club members, as well as a national team challenge between clubs all over Scotland.
When will the Challenge take place?
Who can take part?
How do we sign up?
Clubs should register online through SportServe.
Once a club has registered, they will receive a guide to delivering the event, including step by step instructions for athletes on how to carry out each event safely; information on scoring; and advice on delivering the event within the club.
Clubs will run their own registration process; so young athletes and their parents should look out for information from your specific club on how to sign up for your club’s team.
