Many members will remember the very exciting Nitro series held in February 2017. Usain Bolt turned up to Albert Park and showed us just how fast he was.
But Nitro was more than Bolt. The Nitro format turned athletics on its head, turning what is mostly an individual sport into a points based team sport, where teams competed against each other in new twists of known events. Such as the Elimination Mile, where the slowest runner was eliminated each lap, and the target javelin, where throwers got points for hitting target zones as well as distance. It all looked great fun. So much fun, that many athletes wondered if they could have a go.
Well, if you are an U13 to U16 athlete, you can.
Whittlesea City is getting together with the Keilor, Diamond Valley and Essendon Little Athletics Centres to hold up to three Nitro style events this summer.

It is with great sadness that we inform Athletes, Parents, Members, Life Members and Affiliated Clubs of the sad passing of member and parent Jimmy Sarandopoulos.
Jimmy enjoyed a long term involvement with Tigers Little Athletics Club (formerly Thomastown LAC) as coach, supporter and parent and gained a great sense of pride in watching his son Steven, an athlete of Tigers, grow and develop into the young man he is today.
His friendly smile, company and down to earth character will be sadly missed at the track.
Our sincere condolences are extended to Steven and the Sarandopoulos family.
To help Steven pay his final respects to his Dad a GoFundMe page has been established to assist with funeral costs. Your donations would be greatly appreciated.
Rest in Peace Jimmy
On behalf of Committee of Whittlesea City Little Athletics Centre
