Junior Athletics

Summer Athletics
Activities are held on our new track & field facilities. For the 2018/2019 season, Summer Athletics will commence on Wednesday 17th 
October 2017 with our registration evening, through to Wednesday 19th December 2018 when we hold our Club Christmas BBQ. We will recommence on Wednesday 6th February 2018 through to Wednesday 27th March 2018 when we will hold our End of Season Prize giving and BBQ.

Each night the children are divided into two groups, and then sub groups based on age and gender:

Halberg Squad (Under 7s) - The younger children’s activities will include running (up to 25 metres), long jump, and a range of other run/jump/throw activities designed to develop body movement and coordination skills. 

Snell Squad (
7-10 year olds) - activities for this age group will include running (progressing from 50 metres, dependant on age) jumping (long and high jump, depending on age) and throwing (discus, shot put). The programme is based on the excellent Run, Jump Throw with training and resources provided by Athletics New Zealand.

Lydiard Squad (11s and over) - older children's activities are based on the all weather track and include technical instruction suitable for the age group across all track and field activities. Coach Murray Cumberpatch, ex NZ sprint champion, guides this group along with Sydney Morrow and Julie Collard
