Club Membership 2018
As you will be aware it is time to renew your 2018 membership. This can be done by logging onto the Triathlon Website – http://www.triathlonireland.com/. The cost of becoming a fully licensed Triathlon Ireland member is €65- along with this you also need to become a member of 24/7 Triathlon club which costs €40 for the year. Following a review of club membership prices the committee have decided to increase the cost of annual club membership for 2018. This increase – €10 for adult members and €5 for junior members- will cover the cost of track sessions and Gartan Summer sessions i.e. members will no longer have to pay €2 weekly for track sessions or the annual €10 cost for shower facilities at Monday Gartan swim sessions. This will result not only a great saving for club members but also a saving in time and money management for the club committee.
You MUST be a club member to take part in any club training sessions for insurance purposes. Please ensure club membership is updated by 31st January, otherwise you will not be permitted to take part in club training sessions.
