Top Tips


It takes time and consistency to build up fitness and performance, so avoid falling into the mindset that more is always better. Your coach will always discuss your training plan with you.


Training can be hard. Your training plan will be developed by your coach, with your development in mind. Set yourself goals, and be determined to work towards them.


Fueling your body correctly is essential for your performance and your recovery. Eat well, train well.


Rest and recovery are important parts of any training plan. Make sure you take time out to recharge and recover.

Track & Field Etiquette

Track & Field Etiquette

To Ensure the safety and enjoyment of all members, the following rules must be adhered to at all times. Nobody is permitted on the track unless they are a coach, athlete or club volunteer.

  1. DO NOT cross the track without first checking that no-one is approaching – just as you would cross a road.
  2. DO NOT cross the infield if this area is in use.
  3. ALWAYS run in an anti-clockwise direction.
  4. SHOUT “track” when training hard if someone is warming up/down or obstructing you in the inside lanes (1-4).
  5. Always RESPECT your fellow athletes and coaches.
