We hold our club night on Wednesday nights at Grenada park North. 5:30pm to 6:30 pm.
We have a 3-6 year group where we run the Athletics NZ Get Set Go programme and a session for older kids 7-12 years where we focus on more traditional athletics of Long Jump, Throwing, Starts, Agility and more.
At the end of the night we have a sausage sizzle and some lollies to purchase. Bring your cash.
Our first club night for the 2022/23 summer season will be Wednesday 19 October 2022 through till Wednesday 14 December 2022. We have a break over the school holidays. We then start up again Wednesday 1 February 2023 and go through until Wednesday 29 March 2023.
Grenada North Park, Nassau Street, Grenada North, Tawa (just off Jamaica Drive). Under 7s and 7 and older meet up on the main football field on the same level as the carpark off Nassau Street.
Bring warm clothes, sports shoes and a drink of water (and make sure you remember to take it all with you when you leave at the end of the night!).
Please have all dog on leads.
If it is too wet or cold we will cancel club night. It will be posted on our Facebook page and we will email members.
We run the Get Set Go programme for 3 to 6 year olds.
Get Set Go is an Athletics NZ programme aimed at Under 7s. Last summer we had over 50 kids taking part each week. There are a whole variety of games for the kids and their parents to have fun with based around running, jumping and throwing activities.
A range of activities are set up each club night that the children rotate around. Parents can either move around the activities with their kids, or volunteer to help run a station. The kids are on the go the whole time - no long lines! Get Set Go is a fantastic introduction to athletics for this age group.
The Get Set Go programme is held on the top field at Grenada North Park so you can park on Caribbean Drive or off Nassau Street.
Children rotate around coaching/activity stations. Each club night finishes with a running race whether it's 60m, 80m, 100m or once around the track.
Older athletes can attend club night but may enjoy our training sessions as well. Some experienced athletes also help out on the night.
We always finish our club nights with a BBQ and some treats - a good way to feed the kids on the way home.
