Our Mini Club caters for children aged 1-6 years (age grades are determined by the athlete's age as at 31st December). All age groups assemble in the central grassed area at Tauranga Domain at 5:20pm for a 5:30pm start. Club nights for Mini Club finish at approx 6:30pm.

Children run distances between 20 and 80 meters and participate in fun activities relating to athletics.

Mini club is held down on the lower field, by the cricket nets.

We utilise the Get Set Go programme for our super cute and super keen 1-6 Mini Clubbers. 

Get Set Go is Athletics New Zealand’s foundation programme which forms the initial component of both the Athletics NZ Long Term Athlete development pathway, and our vision of ‘All New Zealander’s engaged in athletics’. It is supported by Sport NZ, Physical Education New Zealand and the Halberg Trust.

Get Set Go provides educational, developmentally appropriate fun activities for children aged 3-7 years that build and develop children’s basic skills they need so that they can choose and enjoy being more active through sport and play. These skills include:

  • Physical movement skills
  • Knowledge & cognitive skills
  • Emotional & social skills
