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. Atene will again be running a fun athletics programme for Under 7s while the junior interclubs are taking place.
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. For the junior interclubs there is no need to pre register for each of these events. If you’re a financial club member for the 2019/2020 season you can just turn up and compete for your club. Note: You will need your 5 digit registration number from your club to compete and you will collect this from your club representative at the first interclub (see details below):
Age Flash and 5-digit Number collection details
You will need to collect an age flash from your club representative at the first interclub on Sunday 3rd November (or the one after that if you can’t make it to the first event). Your club representative will have your 5-digit number written on the age flash which you will collect from the function room at Newtown Park (the main building on your right before you get to the grandstand). If you are not financial with your club before the Thursday prior to the interclub you are attending then you won’t get results on the day.
