Some important considerations when using the track

Supervision
People using the facility on a casual basis do so without direct supervision from Beaton Park Leisure Centre Management. If you want advice on how to best use the facility, please see reception for athletic clubs and contact names.

Age of Users
All children under the age of 12 years must be accompanied and directly supervised by an adult at all times when undertaking track activities. Children who are not training must remain outside the spectator fence.

Lane Barriers
All runners need to be aware that lane barriers will close off No 1 and 2 lanes completely during training times. This is to preserve the life of these lanes. The lane barriers will only be opened during competition meets and carnivals.

Spikes and Starting Blocks
Maximum allowable spikes for use on the track are 7mm (9mm for long and high jumps). Starting blocks can only be used at the 100m/200m and 400m start positions and then only those blocks approved by the centre.

Priority Booking & Lane Use
Kembla Joggers have a priority track booking on Thursday evenings from 6.30-8.00pm. During this time we have priority use of the track. Prior to 6.30pm warming up should be done in the outer lanes or grassed area so as not to interfere with other athletes who have paid to use the track for training purposes. Refer to the sign at the track for further details on lane use. Please comply with these arrangements, which allows many users to safely train on the track.

Track Etiquette
Track etiquette on training nights demands that athletes should be aware of other track users. Other athletes may be running fast repetitions in the same lane and approaching from behind. Always move out when a runner calls out “track”. Any athlete wishing to use the track on any of the following scheduled club competition days, must first obtain permission from the designated club to do so. Athletics Wollongong (Wednesday evening from 5.30 - 8.30pm), IBS (Sunday afternoons from 1.00 - 5.00pm) & Wollongong Little Athletics (Friday evenings in summer from 5.00pm – exclusive use).

Track Safety
Many athletes from other clubs use the infield for throwing events. All athletes should make it a habit to NEVER WALK ACROSS THE INFIELD in either training or to get to the start of a race. Use the track instead.

Spectators
Spectators must stay off the track and infield area at all times. Spectators should remain behind the spectator fence or sit in the grandstand facility.

Admission Fees
An admission fee is payable at the front desk when entering the Leisure Centre. A coloured armband will be given to you and must be warn when using the track. Multi-visit cards are available Fees: $3.10 Children/Concession, $5.20 Adults, $0.70 Spectator

Coaching of Athletes
All coaches coaching other patrons must hold current coaching qualifications and provide them to the centre. A monthly coaches fee must be paid as set by council. Unqualified parents may only coach their own children.
