    Athletics NZ have an online registration process that allows you to register and pay online. If you are an athlete, coach or would like to be a volunteer then please use the link below to register for the upcoming 2023-2024 season.

    The subscription fees set by the club for the 2023-2024 season include components for contributions for the Region, and also Athletics NZ.

    Those contributions remain the same as the prior year. The club does not receive these fees. They are allocated to the Region and Athletics NZ to enable overall sport development for Athletics in the wider region Manawatu Wanganui and across the Country.
