IRON Kid General and Timing Information

GENERAL INFORMATION:

  1. IRON Kid will be held on Monday, May 8, and Tuesday, May 9, 2023.
  2. Students will ride the same buses as the Math Science Olympiad to the Weber County Fair Grounds.
  3. The IRON Kid school team will consist of 3 students in grades 3-6. These students are to be selected by the teachers in the grade.
  4. We are asking that the IRON Kid team (12 students) be accompanied at all times by a teacher from the school. IRON Kid will pay for a half-day sub so that a teacher in each building can attend this event with the school team. It is recommended that a teacher and the PE facilitator attend.
  5. Teachers need to check in at the registration table at the north middle doors of the building upon arriving and pick up their participation ribbons.
  6. Teams need to check in 15 minutes before their event on the southeast side by the scoreboard.
  7. Students not in the competition will be asked to stay on the north side of the hall. The south side of the hall is where students need to check in and stretch. We hope to be able to stage the groups on the south side on bleachers-we would ask all the adults to stay on the North Side.
  8. PE Facilitators: Please RSVP to Roxie Sianez by April 18, 2023, that you have a team coming. Please include the name of the teacher responsible to supervise your teams. We do not need the names of the students.

  2. After the Iron Kid competition we will have students line up; on “go” they will start Hula Hooping. All hula hoops will be provided by the school district.
  3. We will have judges watching the students: students need to use from under their arms to their knees for the hoop; if it touches any other part of their body they need to sit down. Students are not to use hands, arms, necks or feet. If the student quits or if the hoop touches the ground they will need to sit down; if they are tapped on the shoulder by the judge, they will sit down.
