Who doesn't love a field day? Whether it's tug of war, the 100-meter dash, or a long jump competition, there's a way for everyone to participate. Hold a field day with Olympic-style events with a theme of The 84.
STEP 1 - Plan ahead: Get approval from the appropriate adult (like your athletic department) to host this event and let them know what you need. Once you find a day, also choose a rain date in case the weather is bad.
STEP 2 - On your mark: Start planning the different events you want to host with Chapter members. Using an 84 theme, you can have an 84-meter dash; (best of) 84 basketball shots; (closest to) an 84-foot soccer ball kick, shot put throw, or Frisbee toss. Have the supplies you need for each activity you choose.
Step 3 - Get Set: Make signs about the event with the specifics, like a catchy title, date, time, and location.
STEP 4 - Go: On the day of the event, make sure Chapter members know their role (like measuring distances, running a stopwatch, coordinating matches between contestants) so that everything runs smoothly.
STEP 5 - Show appreciation: Congratulate the winners of each activity with prizes from The 84! Clean up and return anything that was borrowed after the event.
STEP 6 - Remember, always take pictures: Have members take plenty of pictures during the field day. Pictures can later be used in the school or local newspaper, and posted on your Chapter page on The84.org.
STEP 7 - Report back: Post pictures and a description of your activity on your Chapter page on The84.org to get points and attention!
