best to try things out for a week or 2 to see if your kids (and you)

generally last several years. You will also need to provide your own
black shorts. Shorts must be plain black with no logos or coloured stitching. Caps are also available for $10.
If competing for Knox in region, state or other centre's various events you need to buy the Knox Centre black and yellow competition T-Shirt for $22(?) so that when other centre's are watching you disappear into the distance they know who they are being beaten by.
you need to start is your uniform and a pair of runners. Athletes from U12 and up can use spikes. See here for spike buying advice - young athletes should buy spikes with heels ...
equipment is sometimes recommended (like spikes for the older kids)
but go easy in your first year as it often takes a year of competition
skills required to compete well in all the events. More technical events
like the throws and jumps will certainly take a while to get right.
Discounts are available at various stores and specialist suppliers
