Challenge 1: Speed Bounce

Challenge 2: Agility Shuttles

You will need 5 pairs of rolled up socks in a pile at a starting marker. Place an A4 piece of paper (or something of an equivalent size) as a target, 5 metres from the starting marker.

You will need to take each pair of socks, one at a time, from the pile and place it on the target. After placing your final pair of socks on the target, you will need to sprint past your starting marker to complete the challenge. Your socks must stay on target to count.

How quickly can you place all of the items on the target?


Challenge 3: Standing Long Jump
