​​​​​​​What are Interclubs?

The Junior Interclub meets provide a great opportunity for children to experience and enjoy athleticsevents including shot put, discus, long jump, high jump, track races from 60m up to 1500mdistances, race walking, hurdles, steeplechase and relays.

Athletes remain with their age-gradegroups during the meet, and move between events in rounds. Events offered for each grade areadjusted to suit the age of athletes, and not all events are offered at each meet.

Once you have a season ticket, entry to any of the events in the interclub meet is free. Athletics Wellington willpublish a programme of events for each Interclub meet at least a few days ahead.If your athlete wants to take part in the Junior Interclub meets this season, you must purchase aseason entry ticket.

The price is $20, reducing to $14 if you enter after Christmas (we have four meets in 2023, and two meets in the New Year).

The season entry system is linked from the AthleticsWellington website here: https://athleticswellington.org.nz/junior/. It is also linked from the Eventscalendar page for each meet.

Athlete registrations must be entered by 11:59 pm on a Wednesday prior to the Interclub competition. 

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.

  A program will be published closer to the time of the event on the newsletters page.Please note that club uniform (club singlet with  Black shorts) and age patches must be worn during competition.All athletes and their families are encouraged to attend these interclub's and as in past seasons, where numbers and circumstances permit, we will endeavor to provide transport to and from the venues.

Start time for each interclub is 10.00 am unless otherwise stated and they normally run through to around 2.00 pm with each age group having 5 or 6 events to compete in.  Ribbon day at Paraparaumu will start at 9.30 am and will continue until later into the afternoon.
