Top 10 reasons to renew your membership

3 Jul 2024

1. NSW Triathlon Affiliated Clubs are awesome and offer priceless benefits.

Clubs remain the heartbeat of the sport, the center of everything we do as an organisation and for most of our wonderful members, the main reason to renew your membership.

Clubs run local and cost-effective races, trainings sessions, social events and are a great way to train with likeminded individuals who love everything about running, cycling and swimming!

Aus Triathlon’s new ‘Club Finder Tool’ is up and running Club Finder – AusTriathlon

If you aren’t sure which is the right fit for you, call the NSW Triathlon staff and we’ll do our best to get the right club for you – 02 8488 6250!

2. Club events are back

Across NSW, Club events have returned in all their glory. Delivered by volunteers, they are a superb opportunity to get active and race alongside your fellow club matesClub events make the ideal hit out before your identified ‘Goal Event’ – give you invaluable race practice and did we mention they’re cheap?!

3. NSW Triathlon Club Champs will return in 2025

Racing for your club, racing alongside your club mates, partying with your mates: it’s special, its unique and you have to be a member to take part. In fact, Club Champs is the only members-only event in Australia!

4. The NSW Triathlon Interclub Leagues will be back and bigger than ever.

Seven years in and the Interclub Leagues go from strength to strength. Interclub (friendly!) rivalry has re-engaged clubs who lost their mojo, it’s created a sense of purpose behind members heading to races and in general, it’s just been good fun with some spice sprinkled on top.

Clubs will battle across 7 Leagues, divided into geographic regions across local and popular events.

To earn participation and performance points, you must be an annual member!

6. Triathlon NSW Individual State Championships Events. 

Triathlon NSW will once again be conducting a series of Individual NSW State Championships events, which is the ideal place to etch your name in eternal glory as the NSW Individual Champion across a set distance. The first NSW member across the line in each age group is the winner.

You’ll need a Standard or Premium member to be eligible to become a NSW State Champion.

7. 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 AusTriathlon?

8. 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.

You must be a member of Triathlon Australia to earn points across the WQE qualifying process.
