We have no control over AAI and ANZ fees and we have not increased our Club fee again this 2020-21 year. Our total fees are among the lowest in Auckland, and they give you year-round access to training on a fantastic all-weather track. A single fee covers the winter running and summer athletics season.
We want to encourage the whole family to come along!
We expect all juniors and competing athletes to wear a uniform. Uniforms can be purchased from the clubrooms on club nights and you can either pay now or on the night with PayPal:
Frequently Asked Questions

What does my annual subscription cover?
The subscription fee covers club activities in both the Winter & Summer seasons in the 12 month period from 1st April through to the 31st March. Membership allows you to compete at club, inter-club and allows selection for Championship events. As a member of Owairaka you are also affiliated to Athletics Auckland and Athletics New Zealand.
What are the ANZ & AAI portions of the membership fees?
This contributes to the administration of Athletics New Zealand (ANZ) and Athletics Auckland (AAI), supporting athletics at a local and national level, and providing resources to clubs (for example the Run, Jump, Throw programme). To be able to compete in Athletics Auckland Centre events or in any event as a Registered Athlete these fees must be paid.
