Uniform Requirements for Season 23/24
St George Little Athletics’ uniform comprises for all ages (TTs to U17):
For Boys: Singlet (red & white stripes) plus red Shorts (available from SportsMagic)
For Girls: Either a Singlet or Crop Top (red & white stripes) plus either red Shorts or red (compression) Bike Pants (available from SportsMagic)
|Options for Boys||Options for Girls|
It is a requirement that the complete club uniform (see diagrams above), including all patches, is worn at all club meets and all Little Athletics representative carnivals & championships. Athletes who are out of uniform during club meets will not have results recorded for their events (and so cannot set Ground Records). Athletes out of uniform at representative events risk being denied permission to compete and will be ineligible for Centre Records.
Transitioning to the New Uniform
From the 2023/24 season onward, only the new uniform (pictured above) introduced at the start of the 2022/23 season and available from SportsMagic 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.
Purchasing a Uniform
Uniforms are available for purchase directly from our supplier, SportsMagic.
If ordering on-line: you can choose to pickup your order from the supplier’s premises (at Chipping Norton, no charge) or delivery to your address (delivery fee applies). For a limited time only – you can select “club pickup” – and then collect your Uniform from SportsMagic at Olds Park on the pickup dates (25 Aug & 8 Sept) or subsequently (Friday evenings). For enquiries regarding sales/exchanges/returns, please contact SportsMagic: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Phone: 8303-6409.
Attaching Bib Numbers & Patches
The Registration (‘Bib’) number must be attached to the centre front of tops. The Age Patch is to be attached to the left front side of the uniform (preferably on the shorts) such that it is always visible. [If the Age Patch has an uneven edge, it can be slightly trimmed with scissors.] The Coles sponsor patch is placed on the top right-hand side of tops. (Left & Right with respect to the wearer.)
The following diagram(s) show correct presentation of the uniform including placement of the various patches.
|Placement of Patches|
All registration numbers must show the coloured border. No modifications can be made.
It is preferable that Bibs and Patches are sewn on to uniforms. [They are not “iron-on”.] If a Bib is lost and needs to be replaced (ie. new number allocated) this will incur a $10 fee.
If it is necessary to use Safety Pins (eg. if you don’t yet have your uniform), you need 7 as a minimum – 4 for the bib, 2 for the Age Patch and 1 for the Coles patch.
If you wish to wear an additional upper body clothing item while competing, a plain white undergarment may be worn under the STGLAC singlet or crop top.
Boys wishing to wear compression shorts at Centre meets may do so under the STGLAC uniform shorts. The only acceptable compression shorts is the SKINS brand in the colour red. If you wish to wear only compression shorts at championships events (Zone, Region, State) – this will be accepted. The Age patch must be appropriately attached.
The SKINS brand compression shorts (pictured below) are available from Rebel Sport, The Iconic or online from SKINS directly ( See Skins Website ).
We’ve introduced a range of optional merchandise you might like to consider, including socks, a Hoodie, sun visor and a cap. Purchases can be made direct from SportsMagic at: St George LAC Merchandise
Shoes must always be worn during competition events.
Soccer/football boots or cleats may NOT be worn. Athletes won’t be allowed to compete in incorrect footwear.
Some athletes may wish to wear spike shoes in certain events, but these are by no means necessary or expected. The following rules apply to spikes worn at St George Little Athletics Centre events:
- U6 – U10 may not wear spikes in any event
- U11 – U12 may wear spikes in track events conducted fully in lanes (100, 200m, 400m and Hurdles) only
- U13 – U17 may wear spikes in all track events
- U11 – U17 may wear spikes during Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump and Javelin
- For Long Jump / Triple jump (synthetic rubber surface) – you must ONLY wear Christmas Tree or Pyramid spikes with maximum length 9mm
- Different spikes are made for grass vs synthetic surfaces – be sure you have the appropriate variant
- Spikes must be removed and replaced with ordinary shoes at the end of a race or when completing the applicable Field Event
- Spikes are not to be worn anywhere except at the Track and at the relevant Field Events.
If your child is wearing spikes at an event when they shouldn’t be, they will be turned away and will not be allowed to compete.
Spikes can be hazardous. They should be carried in a protective spike bag.
