BP Athletic Trials

BP Athletic Trial Events and Guidlines:
Trials begin March 18th and will go until March 29th! There will be specific times in each gym and in Energy Park designated for the events. Please refer to the attached schedule for that information. Please note that both running events and the football throw will only take place at Energy Park on the designated days on the schedule

Participants will get a chance to not only test themselves like the pros but engage in some friendly competition! Those who compete in 3 of the 8 events can earn a t-shirt and those who participate in 7 of the 8 can qualify for overall scoring. 

Individual events are scored on a 10 point system (10 points for first, 9 for second, 8 for third, etc.).

Check out the events!

Fastest time wins! 
“L” Run: 
 
Participants will run around 3 cones all spaced 5 yards apart, in the shape of an “L”. They will start at the first cone and run to the second and back to the first, then run around the second to the third cone (making a figure 8) and then back around the second cone to the starting point.
