A modern team athletics format for young people in schools and clubs

After a very successful pilot of Schools Super8 in Wiltshire in 2009 and the inter-school supporting act for the UKA Inter-City Super8 event featuring the countrie's top athletes in Cardiff QuadKids Super8 is now being used in many counties across the UK.

Super8 is a quick, fun, participative modern format to revitalise inter-secondary school athletics competition. A key premise, is that a Super8 event with eg 8 schools and 130 athletes should be completed in less than 2 hrs. The format has common principles with both QuadKids for Primary Schools and the traditional English Schools Cup.

Super8, is built around 8 events (4 track & 4 field) and 2 relays. Teams are made up of 8 boys & 8 girls, but single sex competition is also possible. Each athlete does 1 track, 1 field and 1 relay event. Times and distances are scored against standard points tables, and the team score is the aggregate of the 8 or 16 athlete totals

In situations where schools do not have High Jump equipment and also prefer not to do the Hurdle events then these 2 disciplines are omitted and the competition is then known as "Super6".
