At Lower Hutt Athletics we offer a broad range of athletic coaching for your young athletes.

Every 1st and 2nd Wednesday night of the season, weather permitting, we run coaching for the 3 main disciplines of junior athletics, running, jumping and throwing.

This prepares the kids for any upcoming Interclub meets, held out at Newtown Park. This coaching includes the following…

  •         Sprints (100m, 200m)
  •         Middles Distance Running
  •         Long Jump
  •         High Jump
  •         Discus
  •         Shotput

Every 2nd Wednesday night of the season, our coaches switch gears and run the athletes through the fun of the Run, Jump, Throw program issued by New Zealand Athletics.

This is a more games based avenue of athletics that also whilst in game, teaches technique, form and fitness.

We have a range of coaches from the parent group, and a number of our former junior athletes that are still with the club have begun as junior coaches.

We offer coaching for all young athletes between the ages of 7 and 15, and we also have an under 7s group that is run every Wednesday night but tailors towards the Run, Jump, Throw curriculum.
