Transitioning to the New Uniform
From the 22/23 Season an updated uniform will be introduced.
For the 22/23 season and beyond, only the new uniform will be available for purchase, however athletes may continue to wear the prior uniform, or a component of it, until the end of the 22/23 season at St George Little Athletics (Friday) competitions and LANSW carnivals.
From the 23/24 season onward, only the new uniform may be worn.
All components of the new uniform bear the club’s logo and can only be acquired from our uniform supplier – see below.
