As with most sporting codes, wearing the correct uniform for competition is an important requirement. Every athlete must wear the Centre T-Shirt, singlet or crop top with the Moorabbin logo.
Shorts should be plain black running shorts or plain black bicycle shorts. Knee-length basketball or board shorts are unacceptable as they can increase the danger of an athlete falling when competing in athletics events, particularly sprinting, hurdling and jumping. Pockets are not allowed on shorts.
The T-Shirt, singlet or crop-top must be worn with the chest patch that is provided once you register with the Centre. The Chest Patch is designed to be pinned to the T-Shirt, singlet or crop-top. Athletes not wearing the correct uniform will be unable to compete.
THE CENTRE UNIFORM MUST BE WORN EACH AND EVERY DAY THE CENTRE OPERATES (EXCLUDING TRAINING NIGHTS). IT SHOULD HAVE THE CHEST PATCH ATTACHED TO IT AT ALL TIMES.
TRACK RESULTS WILL NOT BE RECORDED IF AN ATHLETE IS NOT WEARING THEIR CHEST PATCH
FINANCIAL PENALTIES FROM LITTLE ATHLETICS VICTORIA NOW APPLY TO THE CENTRE IF ATHLETES ARE FOUND NOT WEARING THEIR PATCHES
New chest patches will be provided if the original is lost or damaged for a gold coin ($2.00) donation to the Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal
Centre T-Shirts, singlets, crop-tops and black shorts are available for purchase. Plain black shorts can also be purchased at any department store.
The Centre’s Adverse Weather Policy encourages all children to wear suitable sun safe attire whilst exposed to the sun. An “overshirt” (in the form of a T-Shirt, Polo Shirt or Long Sleeve Shirt) should be worn over the Uniform up until the time of competing in an event.
