Your child must be a registered and financial member to participate in the programme.
To participate in the programme your child requires parental supervision at all times.
The club is not set up to cater for unsupervised children and therefore does not accept responsibility for unsupervised children. The best way to engage children under 6 in athletics is to join in with them and we strongly encourage this.
FUN FIRST AND FOREMOST
The 3-6 year olds participate in fun, skill based activities, and are run separately in their own area for safety. Your child will be allocated to a group. Groups are capped at 12. Groups will be posted prior to the start of the season. Groups are allocated by age as at 31/12/18. If your child has friends of the same age, please email email@example.com to advise.
Please ensure that your child is in the correct uniform this includes the club t-shirt with the professionals logo on the back and black shorts. We recommend that children train in bare feet (shoes are optional). We are more than happy to help source 2nd hand uniforms for whatever reason, we know there are 100’s of club tees sitting in draws in central Auckland. The correct uniform tee shirt must have the professionals real estate logo, we are happy to discount the tee’s for a trade in, please speak to Tania.
There are no coaches for this age group, therefore the responsibility to lead the group each week falls on the parents within the group. (Each group is provided with a user friendly manual and schedule for each week).
If you are not prepared to roll up your sleeves and help out, we advise against registering your child(ren).
This does require a lot of organization and helpers / parents are always required to make the events run smoothly.

5.30pm Roll Call & Notices;
5.40pm Activity One

Remember to support the Club BBQ, this generates much needed revenue to help fund athletes representing the club at external events. We are the only club in Auckland that contribute up to 50% of the financial cost of athletes representing at regional and national level.
