Interclubs allow the children to meet and compete with children from the other clubs of the same age grade in a variety of events.The interclubs are aimed primarily at athletes aged between 7 – 15 yrs, and individual results are recorded and placings earn points towards Interclub Individual and Team trophies at the end of the season. You don't have to be a super athlete to attend these meets, just come along and give it a go.
The dates for the junior interclubs, Wellington Junior Champs, and other events for 7 to 15-year-olds for the 2022/23 season are:
Interclub 1: TBC but likely to be October 30th.
Interclub 2: TBC

Palmerston North Ribbon Day - Sat 17 December, This is a good opportunity to compete at the 2023 Colgates Venue.

It's not compulsory to attend nor is it compulsory to compete in every event if you do attend, but we encourage our athletes to all compete in Interclubs to put their club day experience into action. This allows our athletes results to be officially recorded and they can track their personal progress over the season - it also allows us to identify the potential trophy winners for our "most improved athlete awards".
Ribbon and Medal Days are similar to an interclub except that the first 3 placegetters are awarded either a ribbon or a medal.
Please note that club uniform (Upper Hutt athletic singlet with Maroon or Black shorts) and age patches must be worn during competition.
Each Club is allocated an event to set up and run. Ours for this year is Shot put. Please be prepared to help out.
All Interclub results received from host clubs will be published on the Upper Hutt & Athletics Wellington website.
