Community  Nitro Event 2017 U14-U17

A Special Community Nitro Event for U14 – U17 athletes will be taking place on Saturday evening 4th November at HBF Arena, Joondalup between Joondalup / Hamersley / Ridgewood / UWA – starting at 5pm until 8.30pm.


This is a fun event between all the Centres in a social environment, as detailed in the flyer attached.


The Centre selection process will be to firstly encouraging all U14-U17 athletes to “opt in” for the event and nominate three (3) preferred events in order of preference from the event program by the deadline date of Saturday 21st October.


The Ridgewood LAC Event sub-committee will then be nominating / placing athletes (no more than two events per person) for each of the events according to season results, if more than two athletes nominate for a particular event / age group then the Sub-committee will make a decision based on team balanced / fun / filling all positions.


U13 were included as a one-off event (standard relay) to entice them to attend the event as the centre’s cheer squads & give them a taste for next year being involved.


All nominations for the Community Nitro Event are to be done at the Healthways tent at Ridgewood Oval by close of competition on Saturday 21 October.  We will have a sheet at the tent tomorrow and next Saturday for athletes to nominate their preferences for events.


Look forward to seeing all the RLAC senior athletes enjoying this special event.
