Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ... Field Athletics for Elementary Schools These are: Shuttle Relay, Potato Relay, All Up Relay, Hurdle Relay. Pass Ball Relay, Basket Ball Throw. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS.FOR RELAY RACES Wherever space permits a good long running distance should be allowed, not to exceed, however, 50 yards (150 feet). In all relays there shall be an equal number in the competing teams. The start shall be given by three signals: 1. "On your mark!" (one foot forward to (not beyond) the starting line). 2. "Get readyl" (poise forward). 3. "Go!" GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR RELAY RACES It is desirable that each entire club should run as one team. When girls below the seventh year are competing with girls of the seventh or eighth year, they are to be allowed a handicap of not more than one-tenth of the entire distance to be run (except in the Pass Ball Relay, where no handicap is allowed). The handicap is to be allowed each runner on the team. In other words the starting line of the whole team to whom the handicap is allowed is set forward at one end of the running distance, and the finish line shall be the same for both. In shuttle, all-up, potato and hurdle relays if the number he very large each club may run a trial heat to pick its quickest team to represent the class in the final race. In these two events, the "touching oil" shall be done with the hands, a girl when awaiting the touch off should toe the starting line with one foot, poise forward and reach one hand directly forward as far as possible to meet that of the approaching toucher off. No girl except the first runner of the team shall cross the starting line until touched off. A foul is counted against the team each time one of the members violates the rule. more
