The race is on to find West Auckland's best primary school sports team.
The annual Junior Krypton Factor (JKF) will be held on March 9 at Te Atatu's Flanshaw Road School.
Up for grabs is the Lions Junior Krypton Factor trophy which has been contested for 20 years along with other prizes.
For the first year a Western Leader-sponsored trophy will be presented to the school that wins the obstacle course.
Created by the Oratia and Henderson Lions Clubs, JKF is an interschool sports day that aims to encourage co-operation and understanding among youth while also showing the importance of teamwork and building self-esteem.
More than 30 teams of 10 children from West Auckland schools will go head-to-head in activities challenging their abilities in sports and teamwork.
Teams will be tested in four categories - mental agility, general knowledge, physical endurance and team sports.
Each year about 400 children take part with the help of parents, teachers and Lions volunteers at a different school in the region.
Schools will also fundraise through food stalls on the day.
The Junior Krypton Factor will be held on March 9 from 9am till 2.30pm at Flanshaw Road School, 51 Flanshaw Rd, Te Atatu South.
