School teams will stay together throughout all the activity rotations and collect team points.

Details

Primary Panathlon runs on a rotational system whereby competitors get to take part in each of the seven, eight or nine activities (depending upon entries) for 7 minutes. At the beginning of each rotation the officials will demonstrate and explain the activity. A whistle will then start the activity and after 7 minutes a whistle will stop the activity.

After four rotations there is a scheduled snack and water break (approx. 8-10 mins), followed by the final four rotations.  There will be a 20-minute lunch break- should schools wish to stay for this or another drinks break followed by non-scoring races.

Competitors then have an opportunity to take part in non-scoring fun races before the medal ceremony. Every competitor will receive a medal and certificate.

Each team is ranked on their performance at each activity with a sliding scale of points. Scores from each rotation are then added to arrive at an overall team total.
