Uniform & Footwear
Our uniform is a royal blue singlet or t-shirt with white trim and must be worn by all registered athletes when competing. Tights or compression pants (if worn under the shorts) must be black and above the knee. Athletes may wear a plain white t-shirt under their NDLAC singlet to help with sun protection if they wish. If socks are worn, they must be white. Please bring a hat to wear between events. Please don't hesitate to contact Catherine Ashley our Uniform Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Boys' singlets should not obstruct the age patch (if the age patch is worn on shorts). Athletes will be required to tuck long singlets into their shorts if any part of the age patch is obscured by their singlets. Competition singlets/t-shirts must not cover any compulsory numbers (e.g. athlete registration number) or patches (e.g. age patch). A competitor may be fouled or disqualified if they fail to comply with this request.
Uniform specifics for Girls:
Royal blue/white singlet top or t-shirt and either the matching royal blue/white short 'bike' pants or plain black shorts or bike pants.

Where to attach your patches:
The Age Patch must be attached to either:
(a) the front left leg area of the shorts or pants, or
(b) the upper left shoulder area of the front of the singlet or top.
Athlete Registration Number
The Athlete Registration number must be attached to the middle front of singlet or top. The RED BORDER must be fully visible when the number is attached and visible when the singlet is tucked into the athlete’s shorts.
Coles patches must be attached to the upper right shoulder area of the singlet or top. This patch may overlap the registration number area as long as no part of the McDonalds logo or registration numbers are obscured.
All athletes must wear appropriate footwear at all times. Under 10 and younger athletes may NOT wear spiked shoes for any event. Athletes aged Under 11 to Under 12 may only wear spiked shoes in events run entirely in lanes, in jumping events and for javelin. Under 13 and older athletes may wear spiked shoes in all track events (except for walks), and jumping and javelin events. Spiked shoes must be removed by all athletes when travelling between events and must never be worn outside the oval.
NDLAC rule for high jump: Pin (needle-shaped) and compression tier ('Christmas Tree') spikes only please. Cone shaped spikes may not be worn when high jumping at Foxglove as they are more likely to damage the covers of the mats.
