Canterbury Team List 2021

If you have not been selected in the team, you are to wear your club uniform.  You are welcome to join us in the Canterbury tent when in Hastings.


The Canterbury Team Managers are Andrea Hall and Andrew Stark.

Send all questions to this e-mail address:

  1. ACCOMMODATION:  If you have requested accommodation assistance you WILL be contacted directly by Andrew Stark via e-mail using the e-mail address we have on file.  If you DO NOT receive an e-mail within the next 24 hours, it means I am unaware you need our help.  E-mail me ASAP, as we have very few space available.
  2. TRAVAL ARRANGEMENTS:  For those staying with the team, we will collect you from Napier airport, so if you know you arrival flight time, please e-mail that to us ASAP.
  3. SINGLETS / CROP TOPS:  Singlets and crop tops will be available to purchase this Saturday (27 Feb) at Nga Puna Wai, from the Control Room building (ask for Andrea Hall).  The cost is $50.00 and please bring cash as NO Eftpos will be available.  You can borrow a singlet, but you are still required to pay the $50.00 bond, that you will receive back when we get the singlet back.  We are NOT intending to being too many spare singlets / crop tops to Hastings, so if you CANNOT get to NPW on Saturday, contact us ASAP to make other arrangements.

If you have any other questions, Andrea will be there on Saturday to help answer them in person or send us an e-mail.  I will be away at the New Zealand Masters Track & Field Championships this weekend, so I will see you in Hastings.

Andrew Stark

This year the Athletics New Zealand National Track & Field Championships are being held in Hastings – Friday 5th March to Sunday 7th March.  All club registered athletes who are aged 15 or older as at 31 December 2021 are able to enter these championships.  Competition is being held for Under 18, Under 20 & Senior grades.

National Track and Field Championships – Selection Policy

The selection of Canterbury Team members for the National Track and Field Championships will be based on standards set by the Track and Field Selectors (Canterbury Selection Standards (2021).

The Canterbury selectors this year are Andrea Hall, Pip Keenan & Craig Motley.

Any athlete who equals or betters the standard listed shall be selected for the Canterbury Team, except if the selectors are of the opinion that an athlete who has bettered a standard early in the season, loses form to the extent that they are no longer worthy of selection in the team.  If more than three athletes qualify for an event, the selectors will decide who will represent Canterbury.

The selectors at their discretion may add athletes to the team, who have not reached the qualifying standards, such as athletes required for a relay team.

Performances must be set under such conditions as are required for the setting of a Canterbury record.
