CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR
It is compulsory that ALL athletes wear our centre uniform and appropriate (covered) footwear always during competition as per requirements of the Little Athletics NSW Inc.
Athletes who register with Dapto Little Athletics Centre have two (2) weeks to obtain a uniform. Exemptions will be allowed if uniforms are delayed by our manufacturers.
Athletes must wear Centre uniform always whilst competing in Athletics, including weekly competition, Centre Carnival and events run by LANSW. Failure to wear our centre uniform on weekly competition will result in points being deducted; failure to wear them at centre carnivals and events run by the LANSW will result in the athlete not being able to compete at all.
Our Uniform is:
Centre Singlet, T-Shirt or Crop Top that must be purchased via our centre.
Athletes can must wear royal blue shorts/bike pants.
Uniforms can be purchased from the Uniform Officer before competition starts on competition days.
All athletes are required to wear their Registration Number and Age Patch on the front of their uniform, and they are to be clearly visible during competition. The gold border around the registration number must also be clearly visible (Tiny Tots to Under 17’s). The age patch is to be worn on the left-hand side of the uniform and clearly visible at all levels of competitions. (Replacement numbers and patches can be obtained from the Registrar for a specified fee, Registration Number $20.00 and age patches $2.00. These fees are not put on by the centre but by the LANSW)
