ITC Club Point Score Update

November saw our third club race of the season and first triathlon with a chance for club members to earn points towards our annual Point Score and begin earning points as our season really kicks off.

With good weather and a competitive field there were lots of points scored and some real movement in the point score table. It's still too early in the season to pick a winner, but the consistent racers are starting to rack up some valuable points. Participation is currently driving the rankings, but performance will become more important as the season goes on.

Our marshals on the day also earned valuable points and a number of members are set to shoot up the rankings now the season is underway.
To see a full listing and stay up-to-date on the Point Score see our website.

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.
