Athletics is organised and run as a school-wide event early at the start of Term 1. All students are expected to compete for their Houses in as many track and field events as they are capable of.
The first 2/3 U14, U16 and U19 placegetters in each event are then selected to represent Aquinas College at the BOP Secondary Schools Athletics Championships held at the Tauranga Domain in February/March. From the BOPSS event, the first 2/3 placegetters in each event are then selected to compete at the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Athletics Championships.
The first Year 7/8 placegetters in each event are selected to represent Aquinas College at the Zone Athletics Champs in November 2020.
Based on performance at school and regional events, students can then choose to compete at the North Island Secondary Schools Championships at the end of Term 1, and the New Zealand Secondary Schools Championships held in December.
2020 Athletics Dates
Athletics will be held on Friday 21 February at the Tauranga Domain. Further information will be released at the start of Term 1 2020
Training and practice for Athletics is primarily undertaken during PE lessons at school. Athletes wanting to compete at a high level are encouraged to join local Athletics clubs such as Greerton or Bellevue.
