2015 Children’s XC Series Race 3 Memorial Park, Petone Sun 26 July
there were lots of kids and accompanying parents at Sunday’s event.
seems to be going from strength to strength no doubt due to the sustained marketing
undertaken by Athletics Wellington targeted at children’s and youth grades.
Interestingly Athletics New Zealand membership
figures for 2014/15 reveal that children aged up to 14 make up 67% of total ANZ
membership. That’s roughly 13,460 kids out of total membership of 20,035.
biggest membership group are master’s men and women claiming around 8% of overall
surprise is that competitive men and women in the open grade (20-39) only make
up 3% of total ANZ membership. Given this imbalance cross the grades it would
not be that radical to suggest that athletics in NZ is dominated by kids and
oldies (with all due respect for age).
