July 11 - 18, 2020
Due to the continuing public health crisis, SportsFest could not be safely held due to gathering & social distancing restrictions. Virtual activities will be available in place of the on site event.
Gaithersburg Sports invites players entering grades K through 8 to take the #SportsFest2020 Challenge. Starting on July 11, 2020, you’ll have seven days to play & complete up to eleven video challenges. The week-long competition will wrap up with a video celebration on July 18. Video challenges will be shared on the City’s YouTube channel and the Gaithersburg Parks & Recreation Facebook page and Instagram account.
Participants can test their skills in the following challenges:
- Speed & Agility
- Standing Long Jump
- Disc Golf
- Obstacle Course
- 1K Fun Run
- Create Your Own Challenge
Every child who completes at least seven of the eleven challenges will receive a certificate of completion. Keep track of your child’s completed challenges with this downloadable scorecard here. To receive an e-certificate, please e-mail a photo or scanned copy of the completed scorecard to firstname.lastname@example.org. To make this a truly communitywide sports celebration, you are welcome to share videos or photos of your children completing the challenges on social media using #SportsFest2020 and tagging us @GaithersburgRecreation on Facebook and @gaithersburgprc on Instagram.
