Junior Club Nights

Club nights offer a mixed program of coaching and friendly competition for ages 5 to 14. They provide a great introduction to the techniques and skills required in each of the athletic disciples for new athletes and allow more experienced athletes to brush up on the basics and add an extra training session to their week.

Under 7 year olds

We run the Athletics NZ ‘Get Set Go’ programme for children under 7 years old. Get Set Go is Athletics New Zealand’s foundation programme providing educational, developmentally appropriate fun activities for children aged 5-7 years. The program aims to build and develop children’s basic physical skills so that they can enjoy and feel confident progressing in athletics.

7 - 14 year olds

The club night programme for 7 and older is based around 3 sessions each Tuesday evening, with each session providing both coaching on basic techniques and approaches for that discipline and then some competition.

For children new to athletics our programme ensures that they get the opportunity to learn the techniques and rules involved in each discipline so they can be confident competing both at interclub competitions and school events. Whilst for more experienced athletes, club nights offer a great chance to work on the basics in a fun and relaxed environment.

Get Involved!

Papanui TocH is a parent and volunteer run club and we are always looking for new helpers and coaching assistants.

The club is able to offer coaching training so if you are enthusiastic about helping children to get excited by athletics and have some time you can contribute, we would love to hear from you!
