Our vision is to inspire the community to become active and achieve in athletics.
We aim to be inclusive, supportive, positive, encouraging and fun, offering the best possible experiences for athletes ranging from 5 years old, with the basics in running, jumping and throwing; to high school student wanting to take their skills to a new level; right through to the master looking to be active in recreational events or striving for excellence and awards.
Opening days and club nights
The club’s training night is on Thursday afternoons on the Wanaka Recreational Centre grounds in the summer terms.
Programmes are designed appropriately to age and the needs expressed by members on their registration forms.
All rotation details will be added the week before the Opening Night.
We welcome the support of volunteers, both on club nights and/or behind the scenes. This club is run by the community for the community and relies on a team of volunteers at all levels to ensure success and longevity. All hands are valuable so please add volunteer details and area of interest, on the registration form.
Note: It is necessary for each junior member to be accompanied by an adult volunteer to assist with the mechanics of club nights. This may involve such things as setting up equipment, raking a pit, or recording data. Full adult volunteer details are required on each junior’s registration form.
Coach development pathway
We have a coach development pathway available to all, ranging from levels preparing parents as ‘First Coach’ to the more advanced and movement specific levels of Development and High Performance.
Coaching Courses are posted on the calendar.
