HOME UNIFORM & EQUIPMENT
Uniform & Equipment
Uniforms are required for competition. The Golden Ears uniform consists of a:
- Black, burgundy and gold singlet with the Club logo in front OR Yellow Dry-fit Technical shirt.
- Black running shorts
Every member will receive a “Dry-fit” type training / competition shirt. This can be used for training & or competition. Additional, traditional singlets will be available for competition use.
Uniforms are distributed by the Club Manager on receipt of a deposit cheque ($50.00). Uniforms will be made available to athletes prior to the first competition meets.
Warm up Sweats - Here now!
The Club will be ordering warm up hoodies for sale to all registered GEA
athletes and coaches.
If anyone is interested in purchasing these, please contact Alanna
Wadhwani by email asap.
These will be priced at a discounted price of approximately $30 (hoodies)
and be sold on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Fortunately, not a lot of other equipment is required. The most important piece of equipment needed is a good pair of training shoes. These shoes need to have good support, be relatively lightweight, and be comfortable. We recommend that you purchase these shoes at a store that specializes in running shoes.
Racing flats or spikes are recommended for those athletes, 10 and up, running in track and field competitions. In addition to being much lighter and providing good traction on slippery or muddy surfaces, there is a psychological advantage to wearing dedicated racing shoes. Be aware that you will need to purchase the appropriate spikes for the appropriate surface, as surface conditions will vary. It is important to note that racing spikes can also provide an advantage in cross country racing, where rain, mud and hills can create slippery conditions.
The Club has a limited amount of track spikes in variouse sizes for rent/use during the season. The rental fee for the season is $10.00 with a $50.00 post dated cheque that is returned to you (not cashed) when the spikes are returned at the end of the season.
If you are interested in renting a pair, please contact Wanda Dunlop.
If any members have any gently used track spikes that you would like to donate to the club we would gladly accept them for the benefit of others to use in the future.
Home Base Tent & Equipment
GEA Athletes have an impressive looking tent that they can call their Home Base for track meets away. The club has also invested in tens of thousands of dollars worth of other training and specialty track and field
equipment over the years. It is very important that this investment be protected and well looked
after for the benefits of its current members and future athletes to come.
