Physical Fitness Coach
Dear Fitness Coach:
The South Bronx Physical Fitness Club is pleased to extend an invitation for your school to participate in the Thirtieth Annual South Bronx John D’Allara Invitational. The meet will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2019, beginning at 10:00 AM, and concluding with an awards ceremony at approximately 3:00 PM.
This competition can also be used as a “qualifying meet” for the National Fitness Championships to be held on May 18th at Ft. Indiantown Gap, PA. Please note that in our meet, as well as the Nationals, boys and girls are tested and scored using identical guidelines (see Marine Corps enclosures). The five events will be conducted in the following sequence as such:
Crunches - conducted on standard “wrestling” type mats.
Pushups - conducted on hardwood gym floor (2 minute time limit).
Standing Long Jump - conducted on standard rubber long jump mats.
Pull-Ups - conducted on taped pull-up bars. Chalk will be provided.
300 Yard Shuttle Run - conducted on artificial turf; each length is 60 yards
(if weather is inclement the run is conducted on hardwood gym floor; each gym length 25 yards x 12 = 300 yards).
Teams consist of five or six members; scoring is based upon the top five scorers for each team. Trophies and medals will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams (and their respective members) in both the male and female divisions. In addition, there will be individual high scoring medals for both divisions (male and female), in the standing long jump, shuttle run, and overall high scorer. At the conclusion of the “regular” competition there will also be a rope-climbing contest (for which medals will be awarded) and the presentation of The LoCascio Cup (for highest season cumulative point total).
A $50 entry fee is required for each school entering the meet. This fee will defray the cost of awards for the competitors. Please return your entry form by April 10h to reserve a slot in this Thirtieth Annual South Bronx John D’Allara Invitational Meet. We hope to see your team on May 5th!
