What to bring, and what to leave at home
  • Wear comfortable clothes and footwear - you may be walking long distances.
  • Be prepared for changing weather conditions - bring suitable clothing for walking to and from venues. (As a courtesy to all spectators, open umbrellas are not permitted in seating areas of venues during  competition).
  • You may want to bring binoculars to make sure you see all the action!
  • Don't forget to bring sunscreen and a hat.
Meeting points
When you get to your destination, decide on a meeting point just in case you get separated from your family or group. 
When you first arrive, point out a Games accredited staff and tell your child to ask them for help if they become lost.  Games staff will be in official Games uniform.  Make sure young children have their name and contact details pinned onto the inside of their clothing.
For your safety
