Centre Uniforms

The centre uniform consists of a singlet top or crop top and black running shorts. The black shorts are generic so you can wear any plain black running shorts or bike pants.

Your registration number, age patch and sponsor patch must be sewn onto your singlet/crop top. The registration number MUST be sewn onto the front of the singlet with the red border or sponsor logos showing.

Athletes will not be able to receive points on competition night if they are not in full club uniform displaying their registration number

Registrations numbers cannot be reissued.  We recommend all patches are sewn into place to avoid losing them.

If your child is cold please put a long sleeve shirt on under their singlet. Jumpers and jackets cover the registration number and registration numbers must be visible at all times.

Athletes will not be able to compete at Zone, Region and State Carnivals if they are not wearing the correct centre uniform.
