Scout Triathlon hosted at St. Andrew's School

St. Andrew's hosted the inaugural scout triathlon using the school's swimming pool, athletics track and fields for the three disciplines.

Aims

To enable the Scouts to create and take part in a triathlon event in their local area using the facilities of St. Andrew's free of charge.

Background

The school discussed a range of potential projects with the Scouts and the triathlon seemed the perfect project to make maximum use our facilities. 

Resources

Facilities: swimming pool, athletics track, sports field were required.

Staffing: Facilities Officer and one other school staff member on site at all times during the event (2 hours)

Admin time x 2 hours (inc site visit for risk assessment)

 

Impact

The children really enjoyed the event and were keen to find out if we can host again this year. Hopefully it will inspire children to take up sporting activities. 

Pupil Involvement

A couple of the scouts are pupils at St. Andrew's School.

Frequency

This was the first event but we hope to host another event in 2017.
