NOTE:  Only Cone or Christmas Tree spikes may be worn in the Sportshall.

Starting Blocks

Use Club starting blocks or Club-approved private blocks. Anyone using spiked running shoes must use starting blocks for sprint and hurdle events (includes juniors).

Lane Wear and Tear

Limit wear on Lanes 1, 2 and 3 by not using them for training. If you are warming up, Lane 8 is as good as an inside lane - track etiquette is not to jog in Lanes 1 and 2. 

Sprint Drills

Use grass areas for sprint drills, not Rekotan (all-weather track) areas. If grass is wet, use the areas of the Rekotan that are the least used (e.g. back of the high jump fan or on the outside of Lane 8 etc.)

Equipment

It is important to return Club equipment used for training to its normal storage location. Any equipment damage should be reported to Club Office as soon as possible.

Rules for the Weight Areas

  • Athletes Under 18 are not permitted to use weights and machines in the PowerZone unless accompanied by a supervising coach, and must have paid Powerzone membership.
