What are Interclubs?
Interclubs are a series of competitions held throughout the season (as well as a Ribbon Day, and a Medal Day) which are hosted by the various children's clubs in the Greater Wellington region.
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 interclub's are aimed 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.
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 athlete's 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".
PLEASE NOTE THE BELOW INFORMATION WILL BE UPDATED AS SOON AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE - Our Interclub Entry System is currently being changed
Please note to compete in the junior interclub competition you must be a financial competitive member aged 7 to 15 years as of the 31st December 2023
To register please click on the link below for the Interclub season entry:
Athlete registrations must be entered by 11:59 pm on a Wednesday prior to the Interclub competition.
Note 1: The process will show an event entry for a 100m race. Register for this regardless of whether your child wants to compete in the 100m.
This is just a “dummy” to get your registration processed.
You will now be in the system and your athlete can compete in all the interclub events that they are eligible to compete in. You just turn up on the day and have fun.
Note 2: You will only need to register once for the entire season of six interclub competition.
Ribbon and Medal Days are similar to an interclub except that the first 3 placegetters are awarded either a ribbon or a medal. Medal Day has a limit of 4 events per athlete, and you will be required to registered for the events you choose from the list of available events. A program will be published closer to the time of the event on the newsletters page.
Please note that club uniform (club singlet with Blue or Black shorts) and age patches must be worn during competition.
All athletes and their families are encouraged to attend these interclub's and as in past seasons, where numbers and circumstances permit, we will endeavor to provide transport to and from the venues.
Start time for each interclub is 10.00 am unless otherwise stated and they normally run through to around 2.00 pm with each age group having 5 or 6 events to compete in. Ribbon day at Paraparaumu will start at 9.30 am and will continue until later into the afternoon.
We will need parents to assist with various duties on the day. Please make yourself available to lend a hand at this meeting and also at the subsequent meetings, hosted by other clubs. At the other interclub events look for the WHAC club flag as a central point for meeting with your other club members.
