Independent Training Squads 

In Otago we are fortunate to have a team of dedicated individuals who love to coach and develop our Rangatahi & Senior athletes.  Although many of the coaches have an affiliation to a club, their squads are open to any athlete from any club.  It is important that you find a coach that suits how you want to train so don’t hesitate to ask questions around expectations and levels of commitment required.  Athletics Otago support and promote initiatives from Sport NZ around Balance is Better.

For quality, some coaches may keep their squad numbers down so we are constantly looking to upskill or offer mentoring to new coaches.  Please get in touch with [email protected] to discuss.

If you are able to provide athletic coaching in your area please get in contact to be added to our list.
