What’s new for 2019-20?
This season will also see additional events to assist skills development and provide variation and fun for all. We have planned to increase the training opportunities offered and the weekly program will feature other clubs latter in the year as well as a championship competition on the last competition evening.
We are looking for more teeange coaches to assist in running our Friday afternoon sessions which will help our young athletes improve their skills. Message us here if you know someone who maybe interested!
We built 2 discus cages recently to increase safety and help athletes progress to using more advanced techniques. We also have new flip down type hurdles that are safer for children if they hit the hurdle.
We are also very happy to have newish clubrooms and canteen!
On behalf of the committee I would like to extend a warm welcome to families to a new season of athletics at Gisborne.

We were pleased with how the last season unfolded. A big thank you to parents who were able to do "a little extra" as it was greatly appreciated and it made a big difference to the Friday evening competition.
