Kids Athletics Platinum League

To create an avenue for competition against age mates, we created the Kids Athletics Platinum League, a platform for future champions. In the age categories under 12 & under 15 and with competition in running, throwing and jumping. We hosted the first event in May 2019, with participants from Kampala, Gulu, Kween, Sipi and Kapenguria. The second event took place in September 2019 in the largest stadium of Uganda: Mandela National Stadium also known as Namboole. And in December 2020, we went to Kibinge – Masaka, an event that was covered by the national television:
