Christchurch Avon is one of the largest and most successful clubs in Canterbury with over 300 Senior, Masters and Children athletes active in our distinctive blue and orange singlets.
At Christchurch Avon we believe that athletics is a great sport and believe that every member should be supported to achieve as far as they want to in the sport. This may be selection as a national representative, improving your time for a fun run, or just having mates to train and compete with.
We also see value of athletics disciplines to many other sports. Running, jumping and throwing are foundation skills for sports as diverse as hockey, basketball & netball, triathlon & duathlon, and all codes of football. Many of our members, both seniors and children participate, in other sports; for some athletics is their secondary interest, for others it’s their primary sport.
