Get Set Go and Run Jump Throw are Athletics New Zealand’s Foundation Programmes which form the initial component of the Athletics NZ Long Term Development Pathway and our vision of ‘All New Zealanders engaged in athletics.’
For more information about Athletics New Zealand Programmes, please contact the Foundation Programmes Manager, Stephanie Biggs firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get Set Go
Get Set Go makes it easy for athletics clubs to plan and deliver a developmentally-appropriate programme for young members to enjoy and learn life-long movement skills. The quality resources (including skills cards, session planners and videos) allow athletics clubs to easily implement key fundamental movement skills for children aged 3-8 years. Find out more here.
Run Jump Throw
Run Jump Throw supports athletics clubs to plan and implement a quality, developmentally-appropriate and fun programme for children aged from 6-11 years old. Run Jump Throw provides athletics clubs with easy to use resources that support the planning and delivery of teaching athletics skills in a fun environment. It is designed to be flexible so it can fit into any club scenario. Find out more here.
Throw Like a Girl
The Athletics New Zealand #throwlikeagirl programme aims to support young women and their coaches to develop skills that can lead to success both within and outside of the Athletics arena.
The Athletics New Zealand Throw like a Girl programme caters specifically to the needs of young female athletes and their coaches, aiming to:
- Develop each athlete’s physical, mental, social and leadership skills
- Remove barriers to participation in throws events (shot put, javelin, discus and hammer) for young women
- Provide an athlete-centred environment
- Support existing coach/athlete relationships to grow the capability and capacity of the throwing events with our athletics communities
Future #throwlikeagirl programme opportunities to be communicated.
