After helping coach our school to a NYC City
Championship in Track & Field I helped organize a Field Day for our school.
Running one of the legs of a relay for his seventh grade class was a young man,
who was unbelievably fast. Naturally we encouraged Lillo to go out for the
track team the following year. He captured an individual city championship and he went on to set a world's record a few years later!
Lillo qualified for the 1984 Olympic Games but unfortunately he was injured in an auto accident and could not participate.
Field Days take a lot of planning. The links on this
page have a lot of theme-based field days.
Teacher Notes Organize a field day with an Olympic
Theme. Instead of the shotput do a yarn ball toss. For gymnastics
you can use a balance beam and have students balance a beanbag on
their head and cross the beam without having the beanbag fall.
