Hi everyone, it’s Irvine Junior Games time again. This year registration will be done online at www.irvinejuniorgames.com. The middle school deadline to register is March 8 so you have plenty of time to get it done. The Irvine Junior Games is a great way to give back, participate in friendly competition, and have fun with your friends and family.
The Irvine Junior Games is a family fundraising track and field meet involving more than 1400 4th-8th grade IUSD students, benefiting the Irvine Children’s Fund. The Irvine Children’s Fund(ICF) is a nonprofit organization in partnership with the Irvine Child Care Project (ICCP) with the purpose of raising money to provide quality affordable, accessible before and after school child care for elementary school children, to provide child care scholarships for enrolled families, to assist in funds to maintain the facilities, and to provide grants to the elementary and middle schools and child care sites. There are now before and after school child care sites located on 21 elementary school sites in Irvine.
To participate each student will pay a $25.00 registration fee. Each athlete will receive an official Irvine Junior Games T-shirt and all the proceeds from the athletes registration, the gates and the concessions benefit the Irvine Children’s Fund.
Events- IJG has events for special needs and adaptive physical education children which is awesome. Here is the list of events to compete in. 100 meter sprint, 400, 800, and 1500 meter long distance runs, 4 x 100 relay, soccer kick, basketball shoot, and the running long jump. Top 3 finishers in each event will receive a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal.
