Dates for 2020/21
Interclubs are held at Newtown Park and one in Masterton. There is also a Junior Medal Day at the Hutt Recreation Ground and a Junior Ribbon Day in Paraparaumu at the Domain.
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.
This year parents/guardians are required to complete a one off separate registration if their child is going to be competing in ANY of the seasons interclubs.
At Medal Day you register on the day for events from 9.30am with a start time of 10am. It's $5 (cash) per child. 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).
Held at Hutt Rec in Lower Hutt
Ribbon Day this season they will have events for 5 and 6 year olds as well. It's $2 per child which you pay the club as you arrive.
