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 and ANSW.
Athletes who register with Lake Illawarra 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 Friday Nights, Centre Carnivals and events run by LANSW or ANSW. Failure to wear our centre uniform on Friday nights will result in points being deducted; failure to wear them at centre carnivals and events run by the LANSW or ANSW will result in the athlete not being able to compete at all.
Our Uniform is:
Centre Singlet or Crop Top that must be purchased via our centre.
Athletes can wear either royal blue or black shorts/bike pants.
Plain white shirts or long sleeve shirts are permitted under the uniform during Friday night competition.
Uniforms can be purchased from the Uniform Officer at the Recorders Shed between 4-30pm and 5-00pm on Friday nights.
All Little 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 red border around the registration number must also be clearly visible (Tiny Tots to Under 11’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)
Athletics NSW competitors must display both numbers on the front and back of their uniform.
Athletes in the Under 11’s and 12’s may wear “Spiked Shoes” in all events from the 70m to 400m including Hurdles, Long/Triple/High Jump and Javelin. The Under 13-17’s and seniors can wear spikes in all track events except for the walks as well as the Long/Triple/High Jump and Javelin. Those eligible to wear spikes may do so only for the duration of the event. Spikes must be carried to and from the event and must be removed immediately upon completion of the event whilst on the track or at the area of competition.We promote sun safe awareness and as such allow athletes to wear hats during competition. Please note that during high jump this is considered a part of the uniform and if it happens to knock the bar off it will be considered a foul.

Full Set – $60.00
