Join in this winter with Sportshall Athletics

If you are feeling bereft that the summer season of track and field is over, Sportshall is a fun way for the younger members of the club to enjoy athletics over the winter.

Under 11s to under 15s can compete indoors at an organised event, once a month, from October to March. You don’t have to attend all of them as you are asked to sign up for each one individually.

There is no charge for this event as entry is included in your club subscription.

The events are always on a Sunday afternoon, starting at 1.30pm and usually last two to three hours. All events are at Queens Park Leisure Centre, Boythorpe Road , Chesterfield S40 2NE

These are the planned dates for 2021/22:

  • 10 October 2021
  • 14 November 2021
  • 12 December 2021
  • 16 January 2022
  • 27 February 2022
  • 27 March 2022

Events

The events change each time, and will depend on age group , but there will be a selection of running, throwing and jumping events such as:

  • Standing Long jump
  • Vertical jump
  • Speed bounce
  • Shot put
  • Chest push
  • 1 lap  / 2 lap  / 3 lap races
  • Relays

Each athlete may compete in a maximum of three events plus a relay

Athletes will be issued with their own personal number for their first event; this will stay as their number for all future events. They will gain points based on their placing in their events with points going towards an overall team score at the end of each event. The team with the highest team score at the end of the indoor season wins.
