Each Little Athletics Centre has its own uniform and the State organisation, Little Athletics NSW, requires that all athletes must wear the Centre uniform. School uniforms are not permitted and children will be given one warning to come back next week with the correct uniform. The policy across all Little Athletics centres is “no uniform, no run!”
Accordingly, athletes must compete in the Eastern Suburbs Little Athletics Centre uniform each Friday, wearing their specific Athlete’s Number on their top front. (Parents please don’t get sibling numbers mixed, it confuses the computer!) The Age Group Number must be sewn on the left front leg of the shorts and the sponsor patch (Coles is the sponsor this year) on the top right front shoulder of the singlet/top, as shown in the picture.
Singlets/Tops (as shown on the front page) can only be purchased from ESLAC, along with red shorts, bike pants and compression shorts. If any shorts are purchased elsewhere, they are required by LANSW to be plain red with no logos or stripes and the Age Group Number must still be sewn on the left front leg.
For help with sewing number, age group and logo patches onto the ESLAC uniform please see our Special Offer from Alter to Fit 2018_19. Lucy from Alter to Fit does a professional job at an unbeatable price for ESLAC members.
Uniforms will be available on September 7th, 14th, 21st and October 5th from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, at the change rooms on the eastern side of ES Marks athletic track.

Changes to footwear rules for 2016-17
In an effort to achieve standardisation of rules for Little Athletics across all of Australia, further national standard rules were approved and will come into effect in NSW for the upcoming season.
No spikes for athletes in the U10 age group in 2016-17
Commencing from this season, athletes in the U10 age group will not be permitted to wear spiked shoes in any event.
This ruling was first discussed by the National Technical Committee where the age groups for which spike shoes are allowed in each state were assessed and compared. In all states, with the exception of NSW and the ACT, current rules see the introduction of spikes from either the U11 or U12 age groups. A vote was then passed at the national level to see the Standard Rule become that which was most common across Australia.
