What Is Junior Athletics?
Junior Track and Field includes a range of athletic events. At Pakuranga Athletic Club, children aged 7 to 17 years have the opportunity to participate in running races and relays over a range of distances (60m through to 1,500m, hurdles and race walks, depending on the age of the athlete), throwing events (discus and shotput, and an introduction to javelin and hammer), and jumping events (long jump and high jump, and introduction to triple jump).
Junior athletics caters for all girls and boys born between the 1st of January 2006 and the 31st of December 2016. Children aged 15-17 years must register as '15-19 years' athletes' but are welcome to join Junior competition evenings each Wednesday.
If your child was born on or after the 1st of January 2017, they will qualify for the ‘5s and 6s’ or ‘Tiny Tots’ section. Check our separate tabs on the website for these groups.
Junior club nights are held on Wednesdays - from 5.45 pm to 7.30 pm (exact finishing time dependent on programme, age of child and availability of volunteers). Club nights for the 2023/24 season start on WEDNESDAY 11 OCTOBER 2023.
The cost for the season (11th October 2023 to 27th of March 2024) is $157 per child. Family discounts and payment plans are avaiable.
