Auckland City Athletic Club’s Mission Statement is:
“To promote athletics in Auckland City by encouraging participation, enjoyment and excellence”.
We aim to provide the best available year-round coaching, training and competition to athletes in almost every age-group; and to inspire enthusiastic interaction and support among all members, parents, supporters and sponsors.
We encourage all members, including those who don't consider themselves competitive athletes, to participate in events and races. This provides the necessary incentive for consistent training and the achievement of goals, from an increase in fitness & improved health, to personal best, championship & Gold Medal performances.
The Club’s well-established structure and procedures ensures the smooth running of the organisation and our activities, and the best possible support for our coaches and athletes.
