Young athletes get set for SUPERteams

Wednesday 3rd February 2016

SUPERteams is a scottishathletics event for our youngest athletes and it is coming up on Sunday at the Emirates Arena – with more than 400 youngsters ready to savour the occasion this year.

And now we have the timetable and pools on this website on the Events page in order to help team managers, parents and helpers in the countdown to Sunday.

Teams of four boys or four girls compete in four events during the course of the day. Those events are a 60m sprint, shot putt throw, long jump and then a 4 x 200m relay.

The whole idea of the SUPERteams is as a development event for our very youngest athletes – having fun while learning events and competing as teams within a club framework.

It is always a great day for the youngsters and once again there was a massive response from our clubs to this event – with more than 100 teams now listed. The timetable on Sunday runs from 10am to 3.40pm (one of the reasons for that is there are regulations about giving athletes of this young age time to recover between events).

Thanks to all involved in helping with this event and good luck to the teams set to be  involved.


*SUPERteams are for athletes Under 12. Therefore, to be eligible for SUPERteams athletes must be born between 1 Sept 2004 and 31 Aug 2006. Athletes must also be members of scottishathletics and be aged nine or over.

If an athlete is aged 11 or 12 then the U13 Champs at the Emirates Arena on Saturday 5 March is another opportunity to compete indoors. Online entry is available for this event
