Being a Triathlon Australia/ACT member comes with a whole range of perks, and we're here to give you our Top 5!
1. Save on One Day Licenses
Did you know that as an annual member (Standard or Premium), you ‘ll save up to $55 per season by not having to purchase those pesky One Day License fees?
Our data shows that the average person races at three commercial events each season.
Why pay them when you get join as an annual member of TA?
2. Peace of mind that comes with coverage under Triathlon Australia’s insurance scheme
It’s often spoken about in cafes over hot drinks during training sessions. The value of taking out a Triathlon Australia membership vs not being a member. But the vast majority of triathletes will think nothing of spending a few hundred dollars on an excellent helmet, to keep their head safe whilst training and racing on their bikes. And of course, this is not a bad thing! But whilst your helmet protects your head, your Triathlon Australia membership and insurance coverage actually protects your entire body, in case of an accident.
Public liability and personal accident insurance cover while you are racing in sanctioned events and training for sanctioned events for the duration of your membership.

Clubs remain the heartbeat of the sport, the centre of everything we do as an organisation and for most of our wonderful members, the main reason to renew your membership.
Clubs run local trainings sessions, social events and are a great way to train with likeminded individuals who love everything about running, cycling and swimming! Triathlon ACT Clubs pride themselves on creating safe, fair, and all-inclusive environments which are ideal for newbies right through to the most experience athlete. Each of our clubs offer a variety of coached sessions and social events.

The Triathlon ACT Interclub League will return for a second season in 2022/23 and is going from strength to strength.
