QuadKids is an exciting athletics initiative which gives more children the opportunity to participate in and enjoy the benefits of athletics. It also helps to identify those youngsters who have the potential to be the stars of tomorrow. Quadkids is designed to be inclusive, competitive, quick, fun and simple to run. QuadKids can operate in both schools and clubs, giving more children the opportunity to experience the core athletics’ disciplines of running, throwing and jumping. QuadKids is a team based quadrathlon competition where each athlete does a sprint, a middle distance run, a long jump and a throw. It is primarily targeted at young athletes from the age of 7-13.
