Rules and Guidelines

Athletes and family members attending the stadium or club meetings/competitions must observe the
following rules and points of etiquette.

1) The junior session (summer time only) runs from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The senior session runs from
7:00 pm. – 8:30 pm. Senior athletes may not go onto the track before 7:00 pm.

2) Lanes 1, 2, & 3: may only be used for middle distance training (i.e. 400m or more). When walking/
jogging/ recovering from a run, athletes should use Lane 3 (third nearest to the inner field), and should use single file so as not to impede other athletes.

3) Lanes 4, 5, 6 7 & 8: may only be used for sprint and hurdles training, When returning to starting
positions after a run, athletes should return via the outer edge of the track (nearest to Lane 8), so as
not to impede other track users.

4) No athlete may cross the field at any time, even if no throwing activities appear to be taking place.

5) No one is permitted to take any equipment from the store unless they have been given permission to do so by a Grantham Athletic Club coach.

6) Nobody is permitted to enter the store unless they have been given permission to do so by a
Grantham Athletic Club coach.

7) Coaches are volunteers who give up their time in order to help all athletes. It is not their duty to put
away equipment that has been used by the athletes. If you use any equipment during your training
session, you should help to put it away at the end of training.

8) Athletes and their families should be courteous at all times. Swearing and general bad
language/abuse, causing problems of any sort will not be tolerated.

9) Athletes should not bring personal property onto the track or field. No responsibility will be assumed by the club for any loss or damage that occurs.

10) Please remember to thank your coach at the end of every training session.


In addition to the above, it should be noted that:

Due to updating and developments in Health & Safety and Child Protection policies, the Committee of
Grantham Athletic Club wishes to remind all users of the Stadium that:

1) The track itself and the inner field are both strictly for the use of athletes, approved GAC coaches and GAC officials. Whilst GAC welcomes parents and siblings at training sessions, visitors must always remain outside the perimeter railings during training sessions

2) Following guidelines set down by UK Athletics, visitors and athletes are reminded that on no account are they permitted to photograph or video anyone without that individual’s express consent. In the case of a child, permission of the child’s parent must be acquired. This ruling also applies to the use of camera and video phones. At official meetings cameras, videos and video phones need to be registered with the organizers of the meeting.

The above rules and points of etiquette are to be used in conjunction with the policies and procedures adopted and incorporated by Grantham Athletic Club which are available on the Club website. Your acceptance of these rules etc. is implicit in your attendance at the club and the act of becoming a club member.
