All students and staff will compete together, but staff can only enter two staff members or one team in an event final assuming they qualify to the final round of that event through time, distance or rank.
Short Track Running: Boys and Girls
This is an event where athletes will have to use their speed in combination with their drifting skills in order to make those tight turns around a very short track. This track is made up of cones that you must go around on the outside. All athletes will run counterclockwise for these events. At no time may any athletes jump or skip around the cones.
40m Dash: 1 lap with a straight lane start (run as time trial or 4 in a final)
120m Sprint: 3 laps with waterfall start (run as time trial or 6 in a final)
200m Run: 5 laps with waterfall start (run as final only with a maximum of 9 athletes)
160m Mixed Team Relay: 4 x 40m mixed relay with two boys and two girls from the same grade band
Power Throw: Boys and Girls
In this event athletes will be bouncing a weight ball as far as they can with a running start. Athletes will be given a 10 m running area to run and bounce the ball as far as they can. If an athlete runs past or bounces the ball past the 10 m line the bounce will be considered no good. In this event each athlete will get three attempts. Girls and boys will use a weight of 4.4 lbs. The ball should be around 8 inches wide and no more than 12 inches wide. If there is a tie between two or more athletes the rank will be decided on who threw the same distance first, second and third. If it is a tie between what attempt the distance is thrown and the actual distance itself then a final throw will be given to those athletes and this will continue until there’s a winner. This event can run as heats by distance or by a final with a maximum of 8 athletes.
Skeleton Glide 20m: Boys and Girls
This is an event where athletes will run and jump on a scooter head first on their belly sliding on a smooth surface. The total distance of the glide is 20 m and athletes will start at the 1 m line and have until the 7 m line to push their scooter as fast as they can and then jump on head first on their belly and glide the rest of the way to 20m. In this event the fastest time will win. Athletes may use one scooter and up to three scooters connected together as long as you go head first and land and jump on the scooters using your belly. You cannot use your hands on the floor to help you glide or steer your scooter or scooters. This event can run as heats by time or by a final with a maximum of 4 athletes.
Sports Cross: Boys and Girls
In this event athletes will pull themselves a distance of 20m across the floor on a scooter using a rope. The athlete who reaches the other side first wins. Athletes can chose to sit or lay on the scooter, but they cannot use any body part to to move themselves forward or in any direction. Athletes can only use their hands to pull the rope. The ropes will be tied onto the other side of the wall. During this sprint event athletes who fall off their scooters may get back on without any body part touching the ground and start pulling themselves to the finish line. This can be run as a time trial final or a final with a maximum of four athletes at one time.
In this event athletes will throw a tennis ball into a bucket at certain distances away. The entire length of distance from the bucket is 20 m and all athletes that are competing in this event will start 5 m away from the bucket. An athlete has three attempts at each distance and must make it into the bucket on one of those attempts to move on to the next distance. All athletes who make it at the 5 m line will advance 1 m and this will continue at each meter or until all athletes except for one have been eliminated. If two or more athletes make it to the 20 m line all athletes get three attempts at the 20 m distance and whoever misses first will be eliminated from the competition. The same rule applies if there are three athletes left in the competition when 20 m has not been reached. If one athlete beats everyone at a certain distance they are automatically the winner. The rest of the athletes would be competing for second and third place. If only three athletes make it passed a certain distance then they would keep moving up until there was one athlete left in the competition. Also if there are two or three athletes left in the competition they may all choose to do a final rival at that distance. When a final rival is in play all remaining two or three athletes who play until there was one person left in the competition. The advantage will be given to the athletes who make it in the bucket on their first attempt. If all remaining athletes make it on the same attempt or not make it at all the final rival will reset at the same distance. This event must be run as a final with a maximum of 24 athletes.
Ski Stride: Boys and Girls
This is an event where two people will use ski strides to see who can cover a distance of 20m the quickest. The fastest team will win once the tip of their skis touches the finish line. At no time may an athlete’s feet touch the ground during competition and if an athletes falls off of the skis they must get their feet back on before moving again. All ski tips must be behind the start line. This event can be done head to head or as a time trial final.

Elite Competition Event:
Short Track Running: Athletes will be chosen from all of the Short Track Running events and the Biathlon Run to run an elite 10 lap race (500m) and the winner will receive a $20 Amazon gift card. Athletes who earned 4th place or better in an event will qualify for this elite round automatically. The field will be filled with any remaining spots until the athlete count reaches 8 in total. The only way that more than 8 athletes will qualify is either by earning top four in an event or breaking the games record during a qualifying or final round in at least one of the events for Short Track Running.
One Time Event:
A one time event may be added by the games organizer at any time for the Winter Championship Series. The one time events are non medal events, but will still remain on the official results. The games organizer may decide to keep the event for the following year where then it will be a medalist event. Only one “one time event” may be added during the Winter Championship Series for that year. Only events that are added prior to the start of the games will be valid medalist events.
A challenge period is reserved for other athletes and spectators to challenge the validity of results, but this challenge period will only be open for a maximum of 12 hours after an event ends. After the time specified for the events no more challenges will be accepted and results will be final. A challenge must be immediately presented (within 15 minutes) for a racing or throwing event. Events that athletes compete in at different times such as Skeleton Glide have a challenge time of 12 hours.
