Quad Kids Season
Over the last 3 months the under 12 juniors have taken part in a mini athletics series. Run on 3 separate tracks, Godiva, Pingles and Rugby they have competed against athletes from other clubs and against themselves to improve times run and distances thrown and jumped.
Each athlete runs a 75M sprint , 600M Endurance run, a long jump and howler throw. Times and distances earn points toward the overall team score. We combined with Godiva to form a Coventry Team competing against Rugby and Nuneaton. After a strong turnout at the first meeting we had 6 athletes who completed in all 3 events.

Over the course of the 3 meetings they steadily improved their times achieving new PB’s each time and you could see them growing in confidence as each event progressed. Well done to Holly Delaney, Abigail Handley, Darcie Conroy-Warner , Thomas Weatherall, Oliver Duggins and Freddie Smith for working hard in the events and in training between the events and also thanks to parents for their support of all Sphinx athletes on the night.
