Track and Field

Practice days, fixture lists & athletics records

Athletics is typically a summer sport although it normally falls in the third term. It has been a popular sport at Fourways High for many years and high standards have been maintained over the past ten years with representation in the A-league of the co-ed schools league.

Athletes are able to compete over short distance sprints of 100m, 200m and 400m, as well as long distance events 800m and 1500m. For the first time in 2017 we have entered athletes in the SA Schools league and introduced field events as well as a few additional track events.

In track and field athletes are able to test their speed, stamina, as well as skill in events ranging from sprints, hurdles and long distance running events, to high jump, long jump as well as the power events of javelin throw and shot put.
