Thanks again for participating in the 2023 White Rock Spring Games on Sunday, May 7th at Bishop Lynch High School! We are honored to have so many schools and families joining us for what we are sure will be a great day of fun, friendship, and friendly competition. The Games are made possible through the extraordinary generosity of our community sponsorship partners, our in-kind donors, our host Bishop Lynch High School, and most important of all, our volunteers. We are excited about the day we have planned and wanted to provide you with more information on what to expect during your day.
Each of these events works on the same set of rules and principles:
The Ball Hop Relay calls for each competitor to go from one end of the field to the other while holding a kickball between their legs. If a competitor drops the ball, they must pick it up and start from the place where they dropped it.
Each competitor will complete a course consisting of car tires, agility poles, a wall barrier and a crawl under track hurdles. Competitors are required to crawl UNDER THE HURDLES and not over them.
Each competitor is required to put both legs into the sack and hold it up as they jump across the field to the opposite line.
All individuals participating in the 50-yard dash will queue in the gated lanes near the starting line, located on the scoreboard end of the track on the visitors side. Once all the participants have gathered, the Game Manager will explain the event. A series of six-person heats will then be run in rapid succession, with spotters identifying the first and second place finishers in each heat and providing those individuals with blue discs, which will serve as their ticket to compete in the next round. Subsequent rounds will be run under this format until a final heat of six participants is reached, after which gold, silver and bronze medal winners will be awarded for first, second and third place.
To prevent competitors from ‘leaving early' on baton exchanges, hurdles will be placed at either end of each lane. Competitors will be required to stand directly behind those hurdles until the baton is passed to them.
