scottishathletics are pleased to confirm a third edition of the 4J Studios Virtual SUPERteams Challenge will take place throughout September.
And, in a new format, we also see this as a chance for clubs to offer SUPERteams as a physical event to their U11 and U13 athletes at a training venue.
As usual, each athlete is required to complete four events and this can be done throughout the month of September.
We’re asking athletes, coaches and clubs to decide whether it happens as either another at-home competition opportunity; a training session-based competition where athletes complete the four challenges individually during club training nights; or even as a club-hosted SUPERteams event where athletes can complete all four elements head-to-head on the same day.
Our club guide to SUPERteams 3 offers advice on taking part using any of the three approaches. The competition window is September 1-28.
The Challenge is open to athletes in the U11 and U13 age groups this time around, and will follow a similar format with intra-club leaderboards for individuals feeding into national team results.
The events making up the third Virtual SUPERteams Challenge have also been refreshed as we move towards a return outdoor group training in usual facilities.
For those clubs not yet back in their regular ‘home’, all the events can be competed in local parks or open spaces.
Athletes will take on: 75m sprint; Overhead Throw; Long Jump or Standing Long Jump; 800m.
Clubs can update their leaderboards at any time throughout the month, with all final results to be submitted by Tuesday 29 September.
Clubs can register now to take part in Virtual SUPERteams 3.

Once again, there is no charge to clubs to take part in this virtual event, but all athletes registering scores on the national leaderboard must be up to date scottishathletics members on the final day of the challenge in order to feature in the final results.
