Coming back as part of the 40th anniversary –

Just like the Extreme Griz Competition for adults, this is a test of strength, accuracy, imagination, agility, and speed. But, most importantly your ability to have fun.

Who can take part?

The Junior Griz competition is open to 6-12 years old who want an afternoon of fun and games and a chance to be crowned Junior Griz Champion of 2017!

Where is it taking place?

Most of the events will take place on 2nd Ave, between 5th and 6th Street, from 2-4pm on Saturday, although the imagination component can be completed beforehand.

What is involved in this competition?

The competition is made of numerous events which test your imagination, creativity, accuracy, speed, agility and of course your ability to have fun and enjoy yourself.

  • Accuracy, Strength, Agility and Speed – Numerous fun events will take place on 2nd Ave from 2pm on the 5th of March that will test your speed, agility, accuracy and strength.
