Small Tracks


This rule of project lists conditions relating to planning, design and Technical Conditions of materials, systems and facilities concerning the outdoor sports facilities called Small Tracks, suitable for the practice of the following sports:


Bubble Hockey
Figure skating

As well as physical education school and all those sports that can be incorporated if considered suitable for Small Tracks. The practice of these sports will be all federal sport competitions, recreational sports for all and / or school sport.

The Regulations of each of these sports or sports specialities are separate document of this norm of project.

Beyond the scope of this rule of project, facilities cover useful for the practice of sports cited, which is reflected in the rules of project “ halls and Flags ”.


For the purposes of this rule is used the following terms and definitions:

2.1 Useful Spaces to sport

Are all those who are composed of strict surfaces competition of each sport with its outer bands security, spaces for bench of players and mathematical table, as well as the free space necessary.

2.2 Auxiliary spaces

All spaces are complementary to the role of sport, such as:

- Auxiliary spaces sportsmen (changing rooms, bathrooms, cloakroom, warehouses, nursing, circulations, accesses, etc.)

- Auxiliary spaces for spectators (stands, toilets, circulations, accesses, etc.)

- Unique auxiliary Spaces (bar, rooms of facilities, spaces for media, authorities, etc.)

When the Small Slopes are included in the same Sports Complex with a room OR flag, its auxiliary spaces will be shown forming common core with those of the Room.

When the Small Slopes are part of a sports complex in which they are including Large Fields, the auxiliary spaces can be grouped and reduce if projected requirements permits.

2.3 Area of influence

Is the demographic area to which serve the Indoor Courts, this is one in which they reside potential users of such facilities.


Small Tracks to this rule, which allow the practice of one or several sports mentioned in the previous section, are classified in the following types:

- Sports
- Indoor Courts

3.1 Sports

Classes are small tracks scheduled for a single type of sport of the above-mentioned in paragraph 1, either by their specificity OR by necessity sports. Are intended to be used for sport in schools, sport – Arcade for all and for training and federative sport competition in their different levels. Are classified as follows:

- Volleyball courts
- Basketball
- Tennis
- Padel courts
- Tracks of handball
- Tracks of Football
- Tracks of Hockey
- Balonmano-Playa tracks
- Fútbol-playa tracks
- Voley-playa tracks
- Squash

3.2 Indoor courts

The Indoor Courts classes are useful leads to the maximum number of individual sports compatible listed in paragraph 1, in order to achieve a greater profitability. Are intended to be used for physical education, sport in schools, sport – Arcade for all and training federative sport.


Small Tracks shall consist preferably sports complexes, recreational, which allow greater control and maintenance, greater possibilities of use, as well as a smaller need for land and lower costs of construction to power centralised a large amount of auxiliary spaces.

The agenda of the Small Tracks should be drawn up agreement between the promoter, the author of the project and the future Director of the complex, conveniently advised by technicians in physical education and sports. The technical project author should, where possible, be specializing or have experience in sports facilities.

4.1 Criteria for localization and characteristics of the land

For the election of the land will take into account the following criteria for localization and characteristics of the same:

1 / Internal situation or close to public green areas, so that the environment and landscape are appropriate.

2 / Proximity to schools to ensure that the installation is open to sport for all and race to a few hours and physical education and school sport in other, looking for its maximum utilization. The journey on foot from schools must not exceed 10 minutes and must be sure way to avoid potential risks.

3 / Easy access on foot and by road, as well as proximity to public transport. If the complex goes to everyday use, you must have proximity to accommodation of future users, will be considered the maximum distance:

- Two Km for pedestrians, equivalent to 30 minutes, maximum for access on foot from the most distant from its area of influence, both for the use of the population as competitive sport.
- Four kilometres to access by public transport and for cyclists in urban areas.
- Eight kilometres to access by public transport and cyclists in rural areas.

The distance – time access to Small tracks located at weekly leisure Complex can be increased until 2am – 50km unperturbed displacement in public transport or private.

4 / Existence of surface parking for proportional to the anticipation of users (athletes and / or spectators) 1 position / 20 users, with a forecast of 25-30 m2 per square, with reservation for staff installation, bicycles, buses (1 position / 200 spectators) and for people with reduced mobility 1 position / 200 users (athletes and spectators) or 1 position / 50 seats or fraction and at least two, with a minimum size of 5,00m by 3,60m by square.

5 / Good sanitary conditions, i.e. areas outside the scope of fumes and odors from industry, its atmospheric pollution and major roads. According to the rules of activities Unhealthy, annoying, harmful and dangerous, separated from the plot 2,000m areas with risk of explosions, radiation, fires or next fuels, gases, powders or toxic fumes, etc. Will also hotbeds annoying producers of noise, dust, gases, smells, fog and vibration while not harm human health, separating the plot 500 m from these areas.

6 / Possibility of good orientation of the longitudinal axis of the Indoor Courts (Norte-Sur) in accordance with the regulations, so that the sun not strike out.

7 / Protection of prevailing winds through barriers of trees, terrain conditions OR building low, avoiding the land excessively shakes by winds.

8 / Existence of services (water, electricity and sewage) for the Indoor Courts and its auxiliary spaces.

9 / Land preferably plains requiring a minimum movement balancing land in horizontal surfaces (sports surfaces) with the slopes (free spaces, green) in case of outstanding is advised slopes down to the south.

10 / Permeability enough of the upper layers of the field, fleeing surface area encharquen easily and that therefore require a costly drainage.

11 / Stability compared to the waters of rain or swollen rivers, fleeing the spaces where outstanding converge (vaguadas)

12 / Land with a sufficient compactness, avoiding the of undone or echadizo that require costly foundation works.

13 / Land with possibility of future enlargements of the sports complex - recreational.

There will be taken into account the existing regulations of Public Spectacles as envisaged in chapter II. Sports fields, in everything that affects prior to the design, classes in Small Tracks with facilities for spectators.


Prior to the drafting will have elected types of tracks small in relation to the area of influence of the installation – recreational sports. The needs will be three types:

- Physical education and school sport
- Recreational sport for the entire population
- Sport competition federative

As a general criterion of calculating needs will seek to reconcile schedules for the three types of users are compatible in a Small single track to achieve maximum profitability, with the exception of tracks designed specifically for federal sport competition OR those which by its uniqueness are only useful for specific sports OR group of sports.

Whenever the sports complex – Arcade can be focused on its area of influence, it is best to concentrate on him, the maximum number of Tracks Small resulting from the calculation of needs.

Once made the study of needs of Small Tracks, which will be seen as a sectoral Plan, it will be necessary and coordinate uniting with plans from other sectors (rules of draft pools, big and Athletic Fields, etc.) to develop a comprehensive Planning of sportsequipment and free time implemented through sports Complexes - recreation.

5.1 Influence Area

Firstly will determine the Area of influence or demographic Area served by the tracks small, its delimitation can be based on urban units under the planning Rules of the law of the land, in the criteria of the current Planning or in the localisation criteria indicated above.

5.2 Current and future needs

The whole process of calculation here develops, apply to both the current needs of a particular Area of influence, as its future needs in a given year set a horizon.

5.3 Needs schoolchildren (IS)

Must indicate the number of school places of the “ zone ” involved, as well as its transformation into number of units or school classes and consider the legal minimum established in primary education, secundària, batxillerat and training: sports ground of 44 m x 22 m (968 m2) (R.D. 1537 / 2003).

Defines “ exercise area of tracks small ” minimum space needed for a class of schoolchildren can perform physical education and / or ball games for an hour and simultaneously. This “ zone of exercises ” we indicate the surface of the useful spaces to sport and should include indoor courts with a minimum size of 968 m2 according to the legal minimum indicated above.

School needs is calculated as follows:

IT = C x Or / 5 x Hp / hu x Z ≥ 968

- IT, the area needed for the “ zone of exercises ” that may not be less than 968 m2.
- C, the multiplier Factor climate according to type (1 subtropical Mediterranean climate and; 0.9 Atlantic climate; 0.8 continental climate)
- Or, the number of units schoolchildren.
- Hp, the number of hours devoted to physical activity for cover of each unit.
- hu, the number of hours that can be used for every installation.
- Z minimum area of each “ zone of exercises ” (968 m2)

The factor will be calculated coordinate school needs Small Tracks with halls and Flags, given that are incurred in both the same types of physical activity.

We also offer at least two classes / week of physical education / Psychomotion per unit and are 25 hours all hours per week and therefore the weekly availability of space for this activity. Without considering the after-school sports activities outside school hours that will increase the value of Hp.

5.4 Needs of the population (SP)

The needs of the population are addressed to the practice of recreational sport for all. Will be calculated based on the ideal ratio for the population of the Area of influence expressed in No inhabitants and will be Useful spaces to sport for all Small Tracks in square metres totals.

The outcome may be corrected according to all the local factors that may exist, such as economic means superior, Area microclimate than the influence of the surrounding area, population pyramid excessively separated from the national average, the tourist population complementary to the resident in certain times of the year, etc.

5.5 Needs of sports competition (SC)

The needs of the competition federative sport are a quirk such that it is impossible to translate them into a standard town square meters per capita.

In each sport or group of related areas, these requirements are in relation to the number of esportistes federats (chips), the number of teams (if there are) the number of clubs, the number of hours that can be used every installation, the number of hours of training and / or competition and classes of Small Tracks regulatory considered for competition of sport set (See Regulations).

By having to achieve the regulatory dimensions, in some cases will be overcome the Small size hint that has been given by the calculation of schoolchildren and demographic needs.

For the level of national or international competition can only be used the track Small outdoor tennis, Padel, Balonmano-playa, Fútbol-playa, Voley-playa and in some cases for the ball. The other sports must compete compulsorily covered, for which should consult theRules of project “ halls and Flags ”.

As a result of the foregoing will produce the calculation of the spaces useful in competitive sport in Small Tracks.

5.6 Total needs

It will take as valid maximum value of surface (S) of the three types of Useful Spaces to sport calculated (IT, SP, SC) since the three groups of users never used simultaneously each zone of exercises or each track small, with the exception of classes of tracks designed specifically for federal sport competition OR which by its uniqueness OR for their exclusive use, must be seen in part and whose surface in useful spaces to sport is S ´.

Consequently the overall result of this calculation of needs will be: S + S ´.

This area is known immediately translate it in the types of Small Tracks more convenient, for which Conditions must be consulted design of tracks Small.

Requires careful inventory OR census of the existing small Tracks in the area of influence, OR take note of the same if available, to deduce the result obtained the needs already satisfied.

The surface S + S ´ in useful spaces to sport in Small Tracks, manifested in a series of Small Tracks already selected, we determined accordingly the surface A + A ´ in Auxiliary spaces.


Classes of Small Tracks listed in point 3, are at typologies following which defines the dimensions and surfaces of useful spaces to sport and surfaces of the auxiliary spaces.

The useful spaces to sport and auxiliary spaces Small Tracks whose definitions, dimensions and graphics schemes can be found at the point 6 typology, come defined in each project from a set of chapters and units of work.

Labour units of this project will have to collect a series of characteristics and qualities to achieve a level of functionality appropriate sports, for which the design of Small tracks will take into account criteria of functional nature, environmental, constructive, security, maintenance, management and economic compositional Criteria and aesthetic will design of free decision without compromising the remaining criteria and within budget set.

The project will care integration into the environment, so that the land movements requirements do not pose a negative impact, like the colors and textures employed.

Constructive elements and facilities will be durable and its cost of conservation and maintenance will be minimal.

Will be resolved accessibility for disabled from the outside, in access and the horizontal or vertical paths to changing rooms, toilets, tracks and spaces for spectators, with no architectural barriers and with the provision of facilities and technical assistance necessary for obtaining a level adapted from accessibility, in accordance with current legislation enforceable that it is applied. Recommended compliance UNE of accessibility (UNE 41500IN general design Criteria, UNE 41510 Accessibility in urbanism, UNE 41520 Spaces of horizontal communication, UNE 41523 higiénico-sanitarios Spaces).

Come into the design an efficient energy consumption and limited, as well as the use of renewables (solar, wind, biomass, hydro, geothermal, etc.) for the energy consumption of the Sport installation (e. g.: installation of solar collectors to accumulation of hot water, hot water for underfloor heating in changing rooms, boilers of production of hot water and heating by biomass, etc.)

Should be considered a rational use of water by reducing consumption by means and technical solutions necessary.

Will prevent the emission of pollutants into the air or water.

Contains waste separation and recycling of the same.

Shows the fulfilment of the mandatory rules relating to the construction and facilities and their corresponding Regulations.

The following describes the characteristics of the spaces of the tracks Small:

7.1 Access / Control:

- Access of users will be unique, following the approach to control costs are minimal, so that it is run by the minor No personnel. Where there are facilities for the spectators and athletes circulations public should be well studied not to interfere. In Sports Facilities where planned high-level competitions, it should consider specific accesses public and accesses extras for athletes, authorities, press and TV, independent of the main access.

- Will provide a specific access from the outside on the track, to the room facilities and the warehouse of sports equipment with enough space for vehicles and machinery for performances of conservation and maintenance.

- Access control will be unique for athletes and spectators if they exist, since the control is visually dominate the entry to the / s track / s and the auxiliary spaces. It will have tables of command and control of lighting, security, etc.

- In the facilities with spaces for viewers clearly will be separated from access spaces for spectators of spaces for athletes, the latter should not be accessible for spectators.

- Will be accessible to people with reduced mobility, from the outside, in access and trips to changing rooms, toilets and track / s, must be at least an itinerary accessible to all public spaces, deleting steps and providing outstanding ramps recommended maximum 6% and 8% to bridge differences in height. It will have the
facilities and technical assistance necessary for obtaining a level adapted from accessibility, in accordance with current legislation enforceable that it is applied.

7.2 Sports Areas (and Sports Complexes):
