The Olympic Harrier and Athletic Club is one of the largest junior athletics clubs in the Wellington region. Come and be a part of our Olympic team. At our club nights we run a variety of coaching stations including long jump, high jump, discus, shot put, sprints, reaction games, and IAAF kids activities. We also run the Athletics NZ Get Set Go programme for those aged 3 to 6 year olds. Our members aged 7 to 15 can also compete at junior interclubs, North and South Island Colgate Games, Club Champs and Wellington Champs. And for college age and older there's the summer afternoon track meets such as the Grand Prix, Mini Meets, Regional League Meets and Wellington Centre Champs. We have a fantastic team of coaches with coaching options available most days of the week.
