Field Day Challenge Events
- Standing Broad Jump, best of 3 attempts– Using a line on the ground, stand with feet shoulder-width apart and toes on the line pointed straight ahead. Stretch your arms forward then swing them back, bending your knees and hips. Jump forward powerfully. Land on your feet. If you have to fall, fall forward. Measure the jump distance from the jump line to the body part closest to the line that first hit the ground. This measurement is the broad jump distance to record.
- Jump Rope Challenge, best of 3 attempts– How many jumps using a jump rope can you do in 60-seconds? Each full rope swing that goes over and under your body equals 1 jump. Do as many as possible. You do not need to start over if you mess up. J
- 75-Foot / 25-Yard Dash, 2 attempts- Make a ‘START’ line and a ‘FINISH’ line 75 feet or 25 yards away from each other on a flat, clear surface. Using a stopwatch, record how fast you can run.
- Basketball Dribble, 3 attempts- How many basketball dribbles can you do in 45 seconds? Using a stopwatch, record how many dribbles you can do. You may use both hands and dribble at high, middle, or low levels.
- Basketball Free Throws, 2 attempts- Using a basketball hoop at least 8-feet tall or higher and any size basketball or other similar ball that bounces, try to make as many basketball shots as you can in 2 minutes. Free throws may be attempted from anywhere on the shooting surface, near or far. Go for it!
Remember to record your final results and send them to Mr. Campbell’s school e-mail address by 6pm on Friday, May 15th. Be sure to include your first and last name along with your grade level. Final results of the top ten boy and girl place finishers from each grade level will be posted by Monday, May 18th.
