Get Set Go

This programme is for tamariki between 3-8 years and it builds enjoyment around being active through play and sport. It involves educational and developmentally appropriate activities to develop basic movement skills, providing tamariki with a fun way to get moving!

Run Jump Throw

This programme is for tamariki ages 6-11 years. Tamariki will learn foundational athletics skills while focusing on participation and enjoyment to develop confidence in their abilities. Skills are taught using modified equipment and games, which will support tamariki to begin competing in athletics events if they wish.

Click on the membership portal to sign up your tamariki. You are welcome to come to the opening night on the 9th of October to try it out before signing up.
Please contact us if you have any difficulties with enrolling your child/children. If you do not have access to the internet, we can organise enrolment differently.
The membership fee allows tamariki to compete at the Caledonian Ground on Saturday mornings if they wish, and the Colgate Games which are being held in Dunedin in January. Further information on competing in those events is found on the Athletics Otago website >> Athletics Otago Be Involved Children’s 6-14 years

Health and Safety

A parent or caregiver is required to stay for each session due to health and safety requirements. We encourage you to join in with the fun!
Please note that the toilets are around the back of the clubrooms, and we will not always have access via the clubrooms so we would ask that you accompany your child/children if they wish to use the toilet.
There is a stream running along the back of the clubrooms and this is out of bounds to all children during the athletics sessions. Please keep an eye on your toddlers.
For any further questions or information please email Leith Harriers
We look forward to seeing you out there!
