2) How to do warm-up? (photographs, videos as explaining in words is no use)
3) What are the contra-indicating warm-up? (exercise that brings more harm to the body than the benefits)

Alternatively, you can also download the pdf. file through Google Site.
PS. Please sign in your student email before you click on the link as only people in SST can only download the file.

NAPFA Test Requirements

NAPFA involves a series of five stations and a 2.4-km Walk-Run (1.5-mile Walk-Run) for secondary school students or a 1.6-km Walk-Run for primary school students. All of the station tests are attempted on the same day, with a 2–5 minute rest period permitted between stations. Under certain circumstances, the Walk-Run item may be attempted on a different day, although sometimes a 2-week window limit is set.

The test items are:

  1. Sit-ups: Maximum in one minute
  2. Standing Broad Jump: Better of two distances
  3. Sit and Reach: Better of two attempts with floating zero point
    • Pull-ups (for males 15 years and above only): Maximum in half-a-minute
    • Inclined Pull-ups (for all females, and males up to the age of 14): Maximum in half-a-minute
  4. Shuttle Run: Faster of two 4×10 metre attempts
  5. 2.4-km/1.6-km Walk-Run: Minimum time on firm and level surface

Performances are then compared to a chart and the grades from A to F for each test item. A constitutes excellent performance and E constitutes barely passing. An F grade is an alternate term that the participant has failed that section.

The awards are:

Bronze Award Requirements

  • At least an E grade performance in all 6 test items AND
  • A total of 6 or more points

Silver Award Requirements

  • At least a D grade performance in all 6 test items AND
  • A total of 15 or more points

Gold Award Requirements

  • At least a C grade performance in all 6 test items AND
