We may be a young club, but we have a wealth of experience on our committee and some hard working coaches to look after you and help you improve. All our club coaches and committee members are volunteers who give up their own time to create an atmosphere and environment that allows members to train well and have fun.
Volunteering is an important philosophy to us as a club.
"Ask not what the club can do for you. Ask what you can do for the club"
We strongly believe that if we can attract members with a similar philosophy, the club will continue to grow and expand, allowing us all to give something back to Triathlon and continue the phenomenal growth that our sport is seeing.
We strongly encourage club members to read the Members Code of Conduct and Club Rules.
Under the club's constitution, every year at the club's Annual General Meeting, the club committee is eligible for re-election. The committee roles and their associated responsibilities are linked below.
Club Reward and Development Schemes
To underline the clubs commitment to volunteering the club runs a Coaching Development Scheme, details below;
