CLUB NIGHTS - Monday - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Club nights are run from Hillmorton High School playing fields. At Club Nights athletes compete in their grades and have the opportunity to compete in 3 or 4 events - a mix of track and field - each night. The programme is set to allow athletes to compete in the full range of events over a 2/3 week period. We encourage athletes to try all events and to compete against others in their age group as well as achieve improved personal performances.
An athlete's official age is his or her age as of 31 Dec, 2012. For example, if a child is 9 at the beginning of the season but turns 10 in December, then he or she competes as a 10 year old the entire season (even before turning 10). If another child is 9 but turns 10 in January, he or she competes as a 9 year old the entire season (even after turning 10). These official ages apply to club nights, Saturday Interclub competition, and the Colgate Games. At Saturday Interclub and the Colgate Games, children compete only against others in the same age group (the exception being that children under 7 compete as a 7 year old). However, on club nights, we often combine age groups (e.g. "under 8", "8 & 9 year olds" or "12 and older") based on the number of children attending.
Training is available for all athletes participating in the Interclub competition. The training programme for Grades 10 to 14+ is available for viewing as a PDF from here. Please contact one of the club contacts listed below for more information. Training will commence on either Tuesday 9th October or Tuesday 25th September (to be confirmed).
