Wairarapa Track and Field aims to provide an experience that is fun, supportive and progressive which develops your child to the best that they can be. We do this by providing opportunities for kids to participate in Athletics through events, developmental opportunities in schools and opportunities to be competitive.
The grant Wairarapa Track and Field received was to help run a Run Jump Throw and Get Set Go programme in primary schools during the fourth term of 2017. We were also able to buy the schools much needed resources and do some professional development with the teachers. In total 765 kids went through an 8 week programme which saw many of them engaged in Athletics in a positive way.
The benefit we believe is for all sports, as the skills learned are a platform for kids sporting success in the future and having their teachers supporting them in the right way can only enhance children’s opportunities in the future.
Without the support from Trust House this project would not have gone ahead and we thank them for their donation.
