The QLAC competition shirt is a white T-shirt, singlet or crop top with bottle green sleeves and neck trim. Uniforms are available for purchase on all Saturday competition mornings, from the back of the canteen.
At registration each athlete will be given two cloth numbers, these are very important. The patches are to be sewn or pinned onto the QLAC competition shirt. The small patch refers to the athlete’s age group and should be sewn onto the top right hand side of their shirt.
The large patch is your ACT Little Athletics Association (ACTLAA) registration number which is also used by QLAC for recording purposes. The large patch should be sewn or pinned across the middle of the athlete’s shirt. It is suggested that three sides of the registration number be sewn onto the shirt leaving the top open for the athlete to hold their tickets until they can be put in a more secure place. Athletes competing in any ACTLAA or QLAC carnival MUST have correct patches on their shirts, or they may not be able to compete.
Some other items are also available.
Uniforms will be on sale from 8.00am-9.00am only on Saturday mornings.
Athletes competing in all ACTLAA and Centre competitions MUST wear shoes. Age groups under 6 to under 8 will only be allowed to wear non-spiked running shoes. Shoes with flexible protrusions are not within the definition of spikes. Age groups under 9 to under 17 are allowed to wear “Spikes” for all laned (track) events, javelin, high jump, long jump and triple jump events. Spikes are not permitted for unlaned events (800m, 1500m, walk), shot put and discus.
Spikes are defined as any athletic shoe that has the ability to take metal spikes or with sharp plastic or rigid protrusions. The shoe is still regarded as a spike even if the metal spikes have been removed. “Rigid protrusions” includes materials such as metal, plastic or compounds that are capable of penetrating or marking the skin of an athlete. On grass tracks the maximum length of the spikes allowable is 9mm. On synthetic tracks the maximum length allowable is 7mm for track events and a maximum of 9mm for javelin and high jump.
Christmas tree or pyramid spikes are the only ones allowed when at the A.I.S.
