ITC July / August Newsletter

Check out this month’s newsletter for news about the triathlon season, member news and more...'s that lockdown training going? Starting to get a little over it? Sleeping in a little later every morning? Don't worry, I am too! And it's totally normal.

It's been very quiet over the past 2 months for triathletes around the Gong (unless you're a Paralympian!) hence why this month's newsletter is bi-monthly. It's really feeling like Groundhog Day now (and if you don't know what this reference is, there's no better time to binge Bill Murry movies!), and we hope everyone has been keeping well in this extended lockdown.

Don't forget it's super important to keep in touch - with yourself, your friends, family, and community - so stay active, stay motivated, reach out to someone it you're just not feeling great, hopefully life will be returning to normality soon. Til then I'm just keeping Ben Lee's 2005 classic on repeat "...we're all in this together!"


Remember to renew your Triathlon Australia & ITC membership for the 2021/2022 season!
Don't forget that registration for all ITC members registered with Triathlon Australia is now open in the new GoMembership online system. So far we've had a great response from members signing back up to the Club!! 

Take a sec to click the link HERE to head over to log into you GoMembership account, where you'll be able to:
  • Check and update all of your personal and contact details
  • Check your membership status with TA and (this part's new!) ITC 
  • Renew your membership with TA and ITC for the 2021 / 2022 season which starts July 1
TA has a new tier-based membership model, so you can choose from a range of membership levels which suit you best. Signing up to ITC as part of your TA membership is actually CHEAPER than signing up to TA alone, so if you're still sitting on the fence head over and sign up! We've also got a range of discounts on ITC memberships for families and, as always, Life Members remain FREE to re-join ITC (because you've earned it 😊!)

Juniors Membership for Premium, Standard, and Basic TA membership levels:
  • 15 - 19 $30
  • 13 - 15 $15
  •  5 - 13 $1 (because we want kids involved in grass-roots sport like ours, and it should be for EVERYONE!)
Social Adults $10
Social Junior (Under 19) $1 (yes, less than a quarter of your post ride coffee)
8-Week Trial Membership $30
14 Day Club Trial Membership FREE
Up to 6 Juniors (No Adults) = 10% discount ITC membership costs
1 Adult + up to 6 Juniors = 20% discount ITC membership costs

Triathlon Australia also offers a 20% discount for families of 4 or more for the costs associated with TA membership.

UPDATE 2020 - 2021 ITC Club Presentation & Social 
Unfortunately due to the Health NSW restrictions applied to the Greater Sydney region, we were unable to go ahead with our planned ITC Presentation for 2019 / 2020 / 2021 seasons in late July. At this stage we are hoping to hold an event for all our members to get together later in the year (it'll be warmer too - bonus!) so once Health NSW restrictions allow this to happen we'll let everyone know the details. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and future emails for an update.
We have some very nice trophies to celebrate our Male and Female ITC Champions from 2020 / 2021 for both our Junior and Senior members, but we'll keep it a surprise until then for those Champions!
Plus NEW ITC MEMBERS SHIRTS to give out!

A huge shout out to Illawarra-based paratriathlete Jonathan Goerlach competing in the Paratriathlon at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics with our own ITC member David Mainwaring as his guide. You can tune in to watch the fellas blazing it up on Channel 7's coverage on Saturday 28th August @ 9:30am.
Good luck Jono & Mainy, everyone at ITC will be cheering you on!! 
Triathlon NSW is proud to launch a series of 'virtual' seminars designed to keep us all engaged during this unprecedented and incredibly difficult time.
As a community, we remain linked by our shared enjoyment of all things 'swim, bike, run'. So we are excited to offer a variety of sessions designed to 'inspire, engage and develop' triathletes at any level. 
All sessions will be offered free of charge to season 2021/2022 annual members, with the exception of the 'Staying Strong during lockdown' session, which is open to our extended community, family, friends and partners, as we feel everyone will find it valuable during this challenging time. 

Make sure to register your interest for any or all of these sessions here:

Annual General Meeting
We'll be setting the date for our upcoming 2021 AGM shortly. This meeting is likely to happen online at this stage, and we'll share the details with all our club members once the date is set.
There will be a number of positions up for election at the AGM, so if you'd like to become involved with the Club's Committee drop a line to or A huge thankyou to our 2020/2021 committee who've helped bring club racing and events back under very testing times!
