Suggested Kit List

Below is a list of items you should have in your kit bag when you go to a competition or to a training session. You should try and get more of this ready the night before. Note that not all athletes will require all the items (depends on your event), and it is by no means complete so feel free to add (or take out) any items you want.

Reminder to parents – check these things for the first few fixtures then let the athletes take responsibility otherwise it is always Mums or Dads fault something is missing!
