Super 8 Start/ Junior

Level 2 Super 8’s Athletics

On Tuesday 15th May the Super 8 Start and Junior athletics was held at Brickfields with 11 teams entering overall. Parents and colleagues also turned up to support their young athletes on a scorching hot day!

What Does Schools Super 8 Look Like?

  • Four track events cover core disciplines of: short sprint, long sprint, hurdles and mid distance
  • Four field events cover: two jumps and two throws (high jump, long jump, shot put, javelin)
  • The more complex/technical events such as triple jump, pole vault, hammer and discus are excluded
  • Three relays (boys and girls 4 x 100m and mixed 8 x medley relay) means all 16 team members compete in a relay
  • With eight core events and each athlete doing one track and one field event, there are two boys and two girls per event per team.

Both age groups compete in the same field events; high jump, long jump, shot put and javelin. The track events are slightly different based on the age and gender of the athlete:

Super 8 Start (Year 7): 70m hurdles (girls) and 75m hurdles (boys), 200m and 800m

Super 8 Junior (Year 8 / 9): 75m hurdles (girls) and 80m hurdles (boys), 300m and 1500m

The top two teams from each event will be going on to represent their schools and Plymouth on the 20th June at the Level 3 Devon Summer School Games held in Plymouth.

A huge thank you to all the leaders from Plymouth City College and Ivybridge did a fantastic job on taking charge of the fields events and helped our official’s time keep the races.

A big well done to all athletes who took part and congratulations to the 4 teams who will now represent Plymouth at the Level 3 next month.
