Congratulations on choosing our club, soon to be your club. We have club memberships to suit everyone!
Athletics New Zealand maintain the membership portals for all New Zealand based clubs. The following link will take you to the Port Hills Athletic membership portal and provide you with the options to either renew your membership or join Port Hills Athletic for the first time. If you are a member of another club and wish to transfer to Port Hills Athletic, please get in touch via our Contact page and let us know your details and we’ll arrange the transfer first.
Some of the options for joining can be a bit confusing, so the following information is provided to help you understand what each of the terms mean.
When you join the club, your membership is active from April 1st to March 31st the following year. If you’re considering joining in late February, we’d suggest you hold off joining until April 1st as you’d only have 1 month membership. We’re happy for you to come along to any of the training sessions to see what the club is about for that period without any charge. Please get in touch with the appropriate trainer as listed alongside the club week.
A registered athlete is anyone who wishes to compete at either centre or national level in any competitive events. NOTE: There are sometimes available one off sanction fees for non-registered athletes if you’re only planning on competing in a single event. You can also upgrade during the season from the category of “athlete not registered” to registered athlete if you change your mind too.
