2012 Marks a new era for the UTS Northern Suburbs Athletics Club with the arrival of the new uniform. The new uniform i designed, stems back to the traditional club uniform, which was worn by the original North’s Athletes when the club began in the 1930’s.
The new uniform which consists of a Men’s and Women’s singlet, Women’s crop top and Club competition shirt, incorporates the traditional North’s colors of red and black, and when combined, creates a contrasting mix, symbolic of the clubs competitive nature and leadership as being a club which stand’s out amongst other clubs on and off the track.
The Uniform change has come after almost 15 years after the previous uniform design and after much deliberation this design captivated the members of the UTS North’s Athletics club because of it’s traditional colours as well as it’s contemporary design which shows simplicity with an edge through the use of organic lines to give the feeling of speed and endurance on the panels as well as a plain red front which draws attention to the competitors numbers. Added embellishments of black stripes have also been added near the sleeves of the uniform, which represents tradition.
The quality and fabrication of the new UTS North’s uniform has been designed and constructed using the latest technology in sports apparel design called sublimated sports apparel which involves heat transfer of graphics onto materials. The textiles used for the new UTS North’s Uniforms are of a high quality through the use of a light sports dry material for the singlet’s and club shirt, which is breathable, and lightweight to wear when the athletes compete. The crop top is made from a nylon lycra which fits the ladies figure comfortably. The cut of all the uniforms have been custom made to suit all the athletes’ physical attributes on both the track and field.
Affordability was also a question which came to mind when redesigning the club uniform, so each item of the new uniform is $40.00 which is an excellent price for a top quality uniform which is sure to last at least for the next two decades..
The new UTS Norths uniform is symbolic of a new era in 2012, as a club, which continues to grow significantly, and is a reflection of the quality of the athletes, which belong to the club. As North’s revisit it’s traditional roots through the new uniform, the red and black is sure to create an impact on the track and field and we encourage all of our existing and future athletes to make a purchase
