What are Interclubs?
Interclubs are a series of competitions held throughout the season (as well as a Ribbon Day, and a Medal Day) which are hosted by the various children's clubs in the Greater Wellington region.Interclubs allow the children to meet and compete with children from the other clubs of the same age grade in a variety of events.The interclub's are aimed at athletes aged between 7 – 15 yrs, and individual results are recorded and placings earn points towards Interclub Individual and Team trophies at the end of the season.It's not compulsory to attend, nor is it compulsory to compete in every event if you do attend, but we encourage our athletes to all compete in Interclubs to put their club day experience into action. This allows our athlete's results to be officially recorded and they can track their personal progress over the season - it also allows us to identify the potential trophy winners for our "most improved athlete awards".
Please note to compete in the junior interclub competition you must be a financial competitive member aged 7 to 15 years as of the 31st December 2022

Ribbon and Medal Days are similar to an interclub except that the first 3 placegetters are awarded either a ribbon or a medal. Medal Day has a limit of 4 events per athlete, and you will be required to registered for the events you choose from the list of available events.

Ribbon day at Paraparaumu will start at 9.30 am and will continue until later into the afternoon.

Recently it has been confirmed that Athletics New Zealand 2023 & 2024 Championships will be held in Wellington. Consequently, it is not practical to host the NZMA Championships one week earlier. The Wellington Masters Centre had successfully acquired local funding for the March 2022 event, and this funding has been carried over to the new date. Looking at the fullness on the calendar during February / March, the December date was the only practical option.
A series of Senior Interclubs, Grand Prix and Regional Interclubs are held for senior athletes (Grades: U16, U18, U20, Seniors and Masters).
Program runs October - March
More details are available here.
Our Club Champs are held in Feb/March at the end of each Season.
They are held over 4 weeks.
All Club Members can participate.
The results are used to determine placings for individual events.

We can only do this if we have enough parents at each event to help.
