Club Connect Information

August 6, 2016

Novotel Ellerslie Auckland


Athletics Clubs are finding themselves operating in an increasingly competitive and challenging environment. We need to adapt and move to keep up with the needs of today’s society. Partnerships, collaboration and the sharing of ideas, we believe, are the key to unlocking success in grass root sport. Athletics New Zealand is pleased to offer all clubs the opportunity to get together and to learn and share from each other!  This year’s Athletics NZ Club Connect Conference aims to provide insight and direction for both winter and summer clubs, junior and senior.  We have an interactive, exciting and insightful programme planned for you this year. It’s going to be the best conference yet!!   

Come prepared to share, interact and be challenged. Athletics needs change and it all begins here. We encourage you to attend this once a year opportunity to link with other clubs from throughout NZ.
