Unified and Para: Virtual Track & Field Challenge
The ASAA Virtual Track & Field Challenge in ON!
But how does it work for Unified Sports teams and Para athletes?
Each Unified Sports team will be made up of one athlete (student with an intellectual disability) and one partner (student without an intellectual disability). Each team is exactly two participants. Your school can have multiple teams.
Both participants will do all of the three events:
- Standing long jump
- Softball throw
- 400m Run
The events do not need to be done at school. The teammates do not physically need to be in the same place to record their performances; the videos can be taken separately and added together after.
How to Participate:
- Both team members will record and measure their performance for all three events (i.e. BOTH the athlete and the partner will do the standing long jump, softball throw, and 400m run).
- One team member will upload all of the recordings to the Athletic.net platform and list both team members names in the description.
- Before June 5, one coach from your school will need to log into the platform and verify the results fo the team. Click here to learn more about the validation process.
