Junior Interclubs, a Medal Day and Ribbon Day are held over eight Sundays during the season.  These are open to ALL registered club athletes aged from 7 through to 15 years of age.  

Five interclubs are held at Newtown Park and one in Masterton. There’s also a Junior Medal Day at the Hutt Recreation Ground and a Junior Ribbon Day in Paraparaumu. Dates can be found on our club calendar and also details at Athletics Wellington.

Interclub details below:

  • Interclubs start at 10am and finish around 1.30pm (you can choose to be there only for the events you want to participate in)
  • Ribbon Day starts at 9.30am and Medal Day at 10am
  • Kids get to compete against young athletes from other clubs
  • For 7 to 15 year olds
  • Wear your Paraparaumu uniform for all the interclubs, Medal day and Ribbon day
  • You'll also need your Colgate Age Flash with your Paraparaumu Track & Field Registration Code
  • Spikes can be worn by athletes in grade 10 and older - maximum length is 6mm
  • Each athlete competing earns individual points and club points at all the interclubs.  At the end of the season they have an award for the individual in each age group with the most points, and the club with the most points. 

The interclubs are a great family day out. The kids love it – it gives them a chance to make new friends and compete in a friendly environment.  Take a picnic and make it a family day out.

You don’t need to register beforehand or on the day for the junior interclubs, All junior interclubs are free as part of your club membership.

For Medal Day you register on the day for four events from 9am with a start time of 10am.  It's $5 per event you register for.  At Medal Day they also have races for the Under 7s.  And medals for the first three placings in each event (including each heat of the track races).

Ribbon Day, on Waitangi Day, is run by our club; it's a great day and a good fundraiser for our club, and proudly sponsored by Coastlands.  As always parent help is needed to run this successfully. Every child who competes gets a ribbon and feedback very positive. It's $5 per child which you pay the club as you arrive.  There are also 4 x 100m relays at the end of the day.  Start time for this event is the earlier time of 9.30am.
