A Club record can be set by a registered Club member, representing and wearing the uniform of any organisation affiliated with the IAAF. This includes Schools, Centres or National teams subject to the validity requirements below or sponsor's uniform if approved by the meet managers . A record is a special achievement and the Club owes it to the current holder to ensure that a claim for a new record is validated correctly.
Club records can be set anywhere in the World providing the athlete was registered with the Club at the time and that the performance met the validity requirements of an Athletics New Zealand record:
Wind readings where required
Field event measurement confirmed by graded referee
Equipment and facilities used confirmed as correct
Club record certificates will be presented at the Club Prizegiving at the end of each season.
The form below should be completed in full if you wish to bring a possible record-breaking performance to our attention.
Our Selectors will endeavour to note any Club record-breaking performances but the lodging of this form is a safeguard.
North Harbour Bays criteria for claiming a North Harbour Bays Senior Record
Senior section club records are awarded to registered members in the grade according to the age they are at the time of the performance, irrespective of what grade they are required to compete in by Athletics NZ or any other organisation’s rules. That is why the records are listed as U16, U18 and U20, and not grade 16, grade 18 or grade 20.
This brings our club records under the same rules as Athletics NZ and we believe it is fairest on athletes.
This is a change from the past, when records were allowed only for a grade the athlete was required to compete in. If any Senior section athlete wishes to apply for past performances that they believe would now be a club record, they should contact the club with their evidence, for consideration. If proved to be valid, records can be back dated.
Note there is no change for any rules concerning Junior section or Masters records. They apply to the grade the athlete is required to compete in.
