Wanaka Kids Club

Event and Facility General Assistance - Bike Wanaka/Wanaka Kids Club Kids Race

Organisations Summary:

The Wanaka Kids Club family continues to grow and we're more passionate than ever about getting kids to experience the full range of activi­ties our natural playground has to offer. From adventures, sports and art & crafts to excursions in the Wanaka community, we ensure that every child will have something available to suit their individual skills and interests, as well as opportunities to try new and exciting things. Why fit in when you were born to stand out!


It’s that time of year and the Bike Wanaka 10hr and Kids Race is back and
bigger than ever. For this reason, we need the best ever crew to help us in the build up and on the day itself.

Wanaka Kids Club role is to organise and manage the Kids Racing part of the day. All of the money raised for the event through race entries will go directly to Bike Wanaka and the great work they do. We’d love volunteers to help us in all sorts of ways and we’d love to speak with you if you think you can help us:

- Mark out the race tracks
- Gather our racers in to groups
- Use your great people skills and charisma and take charge of the PA system
- Back cakes and manage the stand
- Call local businesses to ask for prize donations
- Stick up posters around town

There will also be many more ways to get involved we’re sure. We love your ideas so, if you
think something would work well on the day, we’re all ears and will make it happen.

Time Commitment:

Flexible time and commitment - if you can spare an hour or more to help out we'd love to hear from you!

Main race day is 21st October (Sunday)

Located at Deans Bank, Albert Town, Wanaka.

Skills Required:

We are seeking reliable and friendly volunteers with a range of skills. Some require physical fitness, some you need to enjoy working with groups of excited kids and others you'll need great communication skills when liaising with parents of the excited kids! If you are keen - we'd love to chat and find a role to suit you.

Skills Gained:

Race day is lots of fun and we hope volunteers will enjoy themselves! You'll get to meet lots of people, help a great cause, see the kids having heaps of fun riding and have the potential to receive a free session for their kids at Wanaka Kids Club.
