YPLAC Uniforms The clubs uniform consists of a black & orange T-Shirt/Singlet with club logo and black shorts or black sports briefs. The week following registration, athletes will be given a registration patch that pins to their T-Shirt. This has their age group on it. This must be worn & clearly visible on competition days. There will also be an IGA patch that is required to be attached on the back of the athletes top. Shoes are to be worn at all times, i.e. runners – for all age groups. Spikes are permitted for children U12 to U16, but are to be worn on the track only. Spikes are to be 7mm conical shaped and can be purchased at Centre canteen. Other YPLAC club apparel can be purchased, i.e. caps & adult polo’s. See uniform coordinator for orders. Correct club uniform ensures athlete’s event performance is recorded.

Arrival on competition day – what to do Report to the club table – we are located directly in front of the club rooms. Look for the orange sign with the BAT. Read the club notice board for the days events. Athletes are to report to Team Manager, who will assist with event program and allocated times. Wait for your event to be called – events are called by age group. Athletes are then directed to the event. “On Track” athletes are called to the centre of the track at 9.00am for U6 and 10.00am U7. Parents are to accompany their child to the meeting point when called.
Parental Support It is a centre requirement that each child has a nominated adult in attendance. Children thrive on the support and chance to compete with their parent/guardian watching. The club also needs your help to help make the program run smoothly. When sharing the duties across the club, this will give everyone a chance to watch and participate with their own children. Duties assigned to our club - Walk judging Official’s for Shotput Canteen – 2 adults for one hour block, weekly, from 24 th Sep Ticket writing/Timing – 2 adults, for various Sat’s, over the season Set up/Pack Up and Toilet cleaning – three times a season Our club will have a roster that will allow parents to nominate in advance where they can assist.
