The Track and Field season runs from 1 October through to 31st March. We have clubs and competitions that cater for young juniors through to masters. There's something for everyone with sprints, middle distance, jumps and throws events.
The Centre holds competitions on Saturday afternoons for college age juniors, seniors and masters at Newtown Park. We welcome members of local and out-of-town athletics clubs to join us at our meets, along with college athletes.
There are also competitions on Sunday mornings for juniors. If you're a member of an athletics club you get to compete at Newtown Park, and other venues around the Wellington region throughout the summer. If you’re aged 7 to 15 years of age you can compete in these events, primarily on Sunday mornings starting at 10am.
Interclubs are heaps of fun. You get to practice what you've learnt at club nights, meet new friends from other clubs and see yourself improving week after week and even year after year.
Many clubs also have programmes for the 4 to 6 year old age group. We've introduced Athletics NZ and Active Post's GET SET GO programme into a number of clubs specifically for this age group. GET SET GO is a new and exciting initiative to help our Kiwi kids develop the skills they need so that they can enjoy being more active through play and sport. Lots of new activities for kids and their parents to have fun with.
Newtown Park is booked for training use by Athletics Wellington on the following days/times for our clubs and colleges who participate in the bulk funding scheme:
Sundays (when not booked for junior interclubs or championship events).
