CCAA Interclub Competition
This event takes place every Saturday morning starting in October and finishing with the CCAA Canterbury Championship in March. All Canterbury Clubs are eligible to compete. Although each athlete competes as individuals in their events they also earn points for their club in their age groups.
South Island Colgate Games
This event takes place annually in January. All South Island clubs are eligible to compete. Athletes not only compete to achieve personal bests but for the opportunity to win medals in individual events. This event has an amazing atmosphere with a focus on good sportsmanship and building friendships.
CCAA Canterbury Champs
This event takes place every year in early March and is what all Interclub Athletes work towards. Athletes compete to achieve personal bests as well as earn placings in the finals for each individual event. They also have the chance to become the overall Canterbury Champion within their age group.
995 Teams Meet
This one-day event takes place late March early April every year and is for the age groups 9 through to 11. The top athletes from each of their age groups are selected by CCAA based on their performance throughout the season, both at the Interclub Competitions and Canterbury Championship. This is Canterbury's regional team and although compete in individual events all points go towards their team ranking (no placings are given). This builds a great supportive team atmosphere for athletes to perform at their best for Canterbury.
This one-day event takes place late March early April every year and is for the age groups 9 through to 11. The CCAA select the athletes with the greatest potential in their age groups (who have not already been selected for the 995 team). As with the 995 competition this event is about earning points for their team rather than individual placings.
Interprovincial Teams Meet
This two-day event takes place at Easter every year and is for the ages 12 and 13 only. The CCAA select the top athletes in their age groups based on their performance throughout the season. The team will then compete against other regions from throughout New Zealand. As with 995 Team Meet and the Challenge Cup, this is a team event with no individual placings. They will be required to go into a training camp on a Thursday evening and do not return home until the following Monday morning. In this time they have the opportunity to not only compete but to create new friendships and memories they will treasure for a lifetime.
