Venue: Colin Pugh Stadium, Masterton

Time:   9am - 3pm

Organising Association: Masterton Schools Sports Association and supported by South Wairarapa Schools Sports Cluster

Please be advised that a decision has been made by the principal leads of the host associations to cancel the 2021 Greater Wellington Primary and Intermediate Schools Regional Athletics Meet scheduled in Masterton.  The cancellation of any Zone, Inter Zone, Association or Regional sporting event is never an easy decision to make and there are many factors taken into consideration with the safety of the athletes at the forefront.

Primary Sport Wellington respects and supports the decision reached by the host associations. 

I know it will be disappointing to the many, many athletes within the PSW school membership, and the same applies to PSW as we like to see our student athletes achieve and gain recognition through sport.

The Greater Wellington Region Primary & Intermediate Sports Committee have agreed that if Wellington is in an Alert Level that restricts outdoor activities to less than 1500 people on Friday November 19 at 5:30 pm, the 2021 Regional Athletics will be cancelled. The main reasons for this time frame is to respect the time of the organisers, give associations enough time to stage their event and to value the safety of all our athletes and their whānau.

Please NB the above statement is an agreed Regional Committee decision which each Association will adhere too, including Primary Sport Wellington.  

Contact YOUR respective Association contact if you wish to have any further clarification as to how this decision was reached.

The Regional Primary and Intermediate Schools Athletics Meet has been POSTPONED until Thursday 3 December due to 120km/h Southerly gale force winds forecast.  I apologise for all inconvenience this may cause athletes and supporters however it is for the best interests of the athletes and all officials assisting at this event that we go to the postponement date.  ALL schools within the PSW membership and Association Leads have been advised of this decision.

IMPORTANT:  Regional Primary Schools Athletics Announcement.

The regional committee responsible for running this event has met and has made the following decision.

"If our region is at level 1, this event will take place. However if at any stage after returning to level one, our region goes back to level 2 at any point before the event, the event will immediately be cancelled."

NB Primary Sport Wellington as the organising association reserves the right to cancel the 2020 Regional Athletics Meet if a limit of 500 persons or less is in effect for permitted public gathering or event restrictions are in place.  Simply because we will NOT be able to comply and provide a safe event within the permitted  MOH guidelines.  

The safety of our primary aged athletes and wider community benefit is behind this decision and not wanting to aid in the spreading of communtiy transmission rates in the Wellington region.​​​​​​​

ALL associations are restricted to 3 athletes for individual event (Track and Field) and the winning relay team from each association.  It is at the discretion of each association as to how they select their runners for the relay teams i.e. winning school team OR a selection of their fastest runners.  Associations will only be able to enter more then 3 athletes for individual events in the event of tied placing's or times and must be pre registered on the recording sheets (Field events) and listed on the Track marshalling sheets.

Wellington Primary and Intermediate Schools Regional Athletics Championship 2017

Tues 5 Dec, Colin Pugh Sports Bowl, Masterton.

Approximately 700 athletes from throughout the Welington regions primary and intermediate schools converged into the Colin Pugh Sports Bowl ground with temperatures already at 28 degrees at 9am.

This made the first events, middle distance races and Yr 7 & 8 Discus events, exceptionally tough as there was no wind and limited shelter.  The PSW team however were well catered for with 2 ezi up tents and plenty of sunblock on offer (thank you Wellington Cancer Society) and thank you to Georgina Wedge for transporting the 2 tents and setting up early to ensure PSW athletes were set up in the shade of the trees and close to the entrance gate which made for quick sighting of team members to report in and get there athlete number.

Thank you to all the parents of the PSW team members who either transported their children to the event and assited with transporting other children who's parents ould not attend.  All athletes that attended performed and behaved exceptionally well.

Special thanks to Georgina Wedge (Girls Team Manager), Vivian Tse (Boys Team Manager), Don Dalgleish (Athletics Wgtn Official who assisted me all day with the track marshalling duties) and to the following who volunteered and assisted throughout the day:  Daryl Todd (KNS), Andrea Kenworthy (KNS), Perry Dinnan (St Benedict's), Rebecca Tuck (St Benedict's), Fiona Casey (St Benedict's) without your assistance and the assistance provided from the other 8 associations the regional committee would NOT be able to organise events of this size and scale.

PSW would also like to thank and acknowledge Sharon Gates, South Wairarapa Schools Sports Convenor for not only organising such a well run regional athletics event but for also volunteering her association to run the regional cross country event held in July.  It is a huge responsibility to organise one regional event on behalf of the regional committee let alone two in the same year so my hat goes off to you Sharon.

Regional Athletics 2016

The Regional Athletics Championships were held at Newtown Park Stadium on Tuesday 29 November 2106.

In near perfect conditions for an athletics meet, just over 700 competitors, ranging from Years 4 - 8 students, representing the nine primary and intermediate schools sports associations within the Wellingotn region converged into Newtown Park Stadium for this meet.

Event organiser Garry Szeto PSW Director of Sport says "There were a couple of changes introduced for this years regional meet.  Firstly electronic timing was used for the track events.  This meant that the children did not have to line up for mulitple races as each child in a sprint event only had to run the ONE race for the distance that he or she qualified for.  The second change introduced was Athletes with a Disability got to rotate with their peers for the quoits, vortex and long jump events instead of being kept as a AWD group.  Overall I was very happy with how the programme ran and with an athletics meet of this scale it is crucial that all associations fulfil their roles with providing the man power required to run the activities on offer.  Thank you to all association representatives.  An athletics event at this level of competition is also reliant on key Athletics Wellington officials who volunteer their time at not only this level of competition but also at a PSW Zone, PSW Inter Zone and club level.  Thank you to all the Athletics Wellington officials:  Geoff Henry, Sally Mills, Don Dalgleish and Rama Smith for all the expertise you provided on the day.

I wish to acknowledge that not all changes introduced are going to suit everyone's individual needs and rulings by the regional committee such as athletes must wear footwear for ALL events are there for a reason and this regional cmmittee does the best that it can within the resources available and it is important that everyone note that not one single association is actually paid to organise any of the regional competitions that are on offer for the primary aged students."

The inaugural Regional Athletics was hosted by PSW at Newtown Park on Tuesday 7 December.  The initial weather conditions did not fare well for the event, but the rain stayed away long enough for all events to be completed in dry but coolish conditions.

Our thanks to Athletics Wellington officials, all competing sporting associations officials and to the young helpers who assisted as retrievers and runners throughout the day. Without this support this event would not happen
