This event continues to be developing with 96 schools participating during 2012.Qualifying regional trails where appropriate will take place during April/May. It is desirable to have a local area qualifying final. Areas which had a qualifying competition last year, were FinnValley (2 days) North West, Rosses, Buncrana, Killybegs South West.
Two athletes per event qualifying for the county finals along with one relay each regional event. Schools in other areas may wish to organise a qualifying competition amongst themselves on a mutually agreed day. Schools unable to organise locally may still compete at County final with one athlete per event plus relay team per age group.
Principals please note the former as numbers have forced: it is therefore desirable to have a local area event if at all possible.
Awards- medals top 3, certificates for all children N.B. where areas do not hold qualifying events I will on this occasion hold firm on the above namely one athlete per event per school in jumps and throws. You can understand this as there are time and safety limitations on the day.
The normal format is that I will organise the relays based on school size (this proved very popular in more recent years ): small school —-1 to 100 pupils, medium size —-1 to 200, large schools— 200 plus
