    • Is coach/bus parking available?
      Toggle FAQ

      The main car park of the WA Athletics Stadium will be blocked off for school carnivals to allow bus drop off/pick up and turn around. Buses may park at McGillivray Oval or Matthews Netball Centre, as they do for swimming carnivals at HBF Stadium. Any buses needing to park at HBF Stadium will need to contact the Booking Officer for more information. Bus flow and parking maps are available from your Booking Officer.

      Toggle FAQ

      Booked training sessions are available at an hourly track rate for groups of 1 - 50 athletes.

      For bookings of more than 50 people please contact us to discuss your requirements.

    • Can I use spikes on the track?
      Toggle FAQ

      To maximise performance and prevent damage to the Mondo surface, athletes must not use sharp spikes that will penetrate the surface. The Mondo track is designed that when blunt spikes depress the surface the rebound effect will propel the athlete forward, maximising performance. The only spikes permitted for use on the track are of the Christmas Tree and Pyramid shape variety. The composition of the spike, i.e. ceramic or metal, is irrelevant and will not be monitored.

       

      For all training and competition the spikes must conform to the below rules;
      Track spikes must not exceed 7mm
      Field spikes must not exceed 9mm except for javelin and high jump which must not exceed 12mm

    • Do I need a coach?
      Toggle FAQ

      Field athletes must be accompanied by a registered WAIS or Athletics West coach.

    • When can I book my training session?
      Toggle FAQ

      Booked training sessions are available between 6.00am - 9.00pm from Monday to Sunday (excluding public holidays), provided the stadium is not booked exclusively for an event.

       Please refer to visitor information or upcoming events that may impact your visit.

      Please note: Training sessions may be cancelled to accommodate state, national or international events. Cancellations will be advised promptly. Booked and casual training sessions do not grant exclusive use of the venue facilities. Exclusive use must be booked, and fees and conditions apply.
