  • Kids get to compete against athletes in their age group from other clubs.
  • For 7 to 15 year olds (with some activities run for the under 7s as well on the day)
  • Wear your Olympic uniform for all the interclubs, medal day and ribbon day.

  • 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.  Olympic has won this trophy many times.
  • All junior interclubs are free as part of your club membership.

We will send a programme out the week prior to each interclub.  It’s a great family day out.  The kids love it.  It gives them a chance to make new friends and compete in a friendly environment.
