Want to keep fit, stay active, and challenge yourself? Then give athletics a go!
Top performing Sacred Heart athletes are selected to participate at the local Central Zones Event and, depending on placings, may attend Waikato Bay of Plenty Championships and North Island Secondary Schools.
Many students participating in Athletics are affiliated with a local club. All of these clubs provide coaching and help to their members. The Internet will provide you with contact details and information regarding these clubs.
Our school Athletics Day is our first House competition of the year, held in Term 1 at Porritt Stadium.
Uniform: College singlet, black shorts/tights. Please note: the Athletics singlet is not sold. Instead, students are loaned a singlet from the school. If the singlet is returned after the due date (as advised by the Code Coordinator), $50.00 will be invoiced by the school.
Fees: An affiliation fee is paid by the school each year. For all competitions, individual fees are based on the number of events a student enters and are charged to their school account.
Age Groups: Junior: Under 14, Intermediate: Under 16, Senior: Under 19 (as of 1 January in the year of competition). Athletes whose birthdays fall on this date fall into the younger age group.
Please note: For all NZ Secondary School events/championships – there are only two age groups (Under 16 = Juniors, Under 19 = Seniors). All other secondary school competitions are in the three age groups above.
