Athletes should wear the Cooma Athletics shirt with their competition patch, age-group patch and sponsor logo patch attached. These patches must be attached in the same positions as shown in the image below:
Shorts are black and should be suitable for physical activity.
Athletes are exposed to the sun for an extended period and the oval offers little shade options during competition. Therefore, please ensure your child(ren) have sunscreen applied, and have a hat and a water bottle with them.
Athletes must wear appropriate footwear at competition. Lightweight, supportive sneakers work well for all events.
Waffles are an alternate footwear designed specifically for Track & Field. They are a thin, lightweight shoe with more grip than a regular sneaker and are very versatile across all events.
