Frequently asked questions
Do we need special shoes?
Spikes can be worn from U11 upwards, in laned events (100m, 200m, 400m) long jump, high jump and triple jump. Spikes must be removed immediately after each event and carried with the athlete. Spike shoes are not however necessary and generally only 10-15% of athletes at our centre use them.
What happens if it rains or is very hot ?
A Club committee person will communicate the cancellation on our website tamworthlac.org.au or
Facebook page and 92.9fm radio.
Will my child be taught the correct technique or have access to coaching?
