About Us

Athletics Southland administers the sport in Southland.  It comprises of eight clubs who cater for their members. Harriers which looks after winter running and Track & Field which administers summer athletics for all age groups from Junior's (athletes 14 and under), Senior's (15 to 35) and Masters who runs competitions for athletes age 35 and over. Each of these groups have committees looking after their needs.

Here’s how it work's...
The sport can be considered a cooperative, with its members (athletes) the owners.  The owners appoint the management and committees that control and run the sport.  Of these, the Board is charged with the overall policy making and control of athletics in Southland, and is voted for at the AGM.

Day to day running and control of each section of the sport, i.e. senior athletics, harriers, children’s athletics and masters is by the sub committees with members elected by section members as in the case of masters, or appointed as delegates by the Southland clubs.

Linking all sections together is the Sports Manager who looks after such things as administration, communication and coaching coordination for all sections.

In essence, anyone and everyone can have a say in how the sport is run, as the athletes say who represents them on the club committees, on the various sub committees and on the board.  However, athletes can also approach any committee or the board with suggestions and requests.  While not having a vote, athletes and interested parties are welcome to attend sub committee meetings and have their say.  It is your sport.  You have the ultimate control on where it goes and what it does.    And if you’re not happy with something, say so – but say it to the people who can do something about it – the people you have charged with guiding the sport in Southland.

If you have criticisms or comments convey it to your club, a committee member or a board member.  It is after all, your sport and unless your committee or club knows what you want, it won’t be discussed, debated or voted
