ITC Club Point Score Update

The ITC Club Point Score saw a lot of movement in December with some club regulars rocketing up the age group and overall rankings. Those who marshalled in previous races have shot up the table upon receiving their first performance points of the season and a few consistent racers have seen their scores topping out the leaderboard.

The January to March period could see a big upset in the rankings as the number of races contributing to the Point Score increases during peak race season. The first external race with participation points (10 per event) will be Aquathon on January 26th, but with Big Husky coming up and Splash Aquathon in March and five more club races left in the season there's still everything to play for.
To see a full listing and stay up-to-date on the Point Score see our website.

And don't forget, it's not too late to enter the Wollongong Aquathon to earn points towards the club point score total. Check out the offer below.

Open Water Wednesdays

Don't forget our open water swims are running every Wednesday during the tri season. All club members can join our training sessions free of charge and non-members can also join us for up to three sessions before becoming a member.

Our swims are running every week (4.30pm for juniors and 5.30pm for adults) at our usual venue of Belmore Basin. Note that our adult sessions will be longer (you can still join us at 6pm for a shorter swim if you prefer). Sessions are led by our club coach and water safety are on site for the whole session.
Thursday Run Squad
Don’t forget club members can join our Thursday afternoon run sessions every week starting at 5pm sharp at Fairy Meadow Surf Lifesaving Car Park. Each session is a structured workout led by our club coach and the format varies each week. All abilities welcome. 

Monthly Committee Meetings

All of our members are welcome to attend our monthly committee meetings at City Beach Surf Lifesavers in Wollongong at 7pm on the first Wednesday of the month. This is an opportunity to hear what is being planned for the club and have your say in what the club should be doing. It's also a great opportunity to volunteer to help with the activities of the club.
