Relay Race 4x100-400 - the 4 in 4x100 stands for how many people and the 100-400 is how much each person must run. After you have run the amount you pass on the baton.
Long-Jump - Basically an event to see how far you jumped. There is a line where you must jump before with a sand pit. They will measure how far you got.
Shot Put - There is a circle you must stay in as you throw a 6 pound ball (6-7th grade) or a 8 pound ball (8th grade) It's more of a fluid thrust motion then a throw.
Practices Practices usually start with an easy lap around (maybe about 400 meters?) and stretching. Then we split to either do one of the running events or field events (split into groups) May switch half way through.
