Objectives: University of Canterbury Club night aims to encourage participation by 5 to 14 year old children in structured athletic activities in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. Athletes learn new skills and at the same time stay healthy, have fun and make lots of new friends!!  The Club’s focus is to foster a positive attitude to fitness, help achieve sporting potential and provide a fun and friendly environment for the whole family.


Groups The children are grouped according to their age and gender from U7 to 14 years old. Each group will have a team leader that will provide them with coaching and encouragement through the season. Each group size limited to maximum of 10 athletes.


The Minis group is for all children Under 7 years old. this group use modified equipment and coaching techniques, specifically Run Jump Throw. Some events are modified to suit their stage of development however they compete in most events on competition nights.


Format for the season The basic format for the season will remain the same as in previous years where one week is a coaching night and the alternative week is a competition night.  On Competition night every athlete’s times and distances are recorded and a record of their personal bests are kept and always on display on the notice boards. Our emphasis on these nights is for the children to strive to achieve personal bests.
