The Set-up and Pack-up of the Discus will take a single individual about 10 minutes to complete. The task only involves moving the Discus Trolley and the Tape Measure Trolley to the right location on the track and unloading/loading the necessary equipment (see below).
Ginninderra has 3 Discus Cages, two at the southern end of the oval (nearest the Toilet Block) and a third nearest the northern end (nearest the Netball Courts).
Discus Area 1 and Discus Area 3 are to be used by Senior Athletes (Under 13s and up) for safety reasons.
Under 6s and Under 7s due to the numbers in the Age Group will use “pop-up” circles painted on the ground by the Discus Crew. These temporary circles are to be located to the left of Discus Area 1 (near the soccer infield).
Each Discus Area should receive:
- 1 tape measure;
- 1 set of distance markers (no less than 13);
- 1 cloth for drying the Discus;
- the appropriate amount of Discus for that Area.
The Discus Trolley holds up to 36 discus and is very easy to manoeuvre.
