To be added to the club waiting list, by completing the enquiry form. You weil recieve an email confirming you have completed the form and this will be your confirmation that you have been added to the waiting list. 

GO TO ENQUIRY FORM 

We cannot advise you on the length of time you may have to wait  as this depends on members leaving which is impossible to predict, however as soon as place in the main Saturday sessions becomes available, Elaine Bramley, the Membership Secretary will contact you by phone or by e-mail to offer you a place.  All offers are subject to children passing a swim assessment.

If your child attends training or a trial you are required to complete the parent consent form which doubles as the club membership form. This provides us with key emergency contact details as well as medical information. Membership fees and Term Fees are invoiced using a PayPal invoice sent by e-mail. 

GO TO PARENT/GUARDIAN CONSENT FORM 

Please note that club membership does not include British Triathlon Membership which we recommend for those planning to race regularly.

Fees

The Annual Membership fee is £10 per calendar year*. This enables the children to enter races under the club name. All new members will receive a drawstring transition bag and a club swim hat.

Term fees are paid at the start of each term. The fee works out at £3.00 per week  for Groups 1, 2, F, and C and  £2.50 per week for Group S assuming the child attends every session.

* For those who are turning 17 or older in the current year (Junior category) they can join the Senior club and pay a Membership Fee of £30 we will then refund the £10 Junior membership fee.  They are then able to attend both junior and senior training sessions (additional session charges apply). When training with Senior club sessions they will be expected to act and will be treated as an adult.  It should also be pointed out that there is no special consideration given to child protection as these are adult sessions.

All fees are invoice using a PayPal e-mail invoice, and it helps save volunteer time if these are paid promptly and we don't need to chase.

Attendance Policy

As a competitive Triathlon club for young people we are dedicated to ensuring that members get the very best out of their membership.  Regular training is essential to maintain and improve technique and fitness – and to maximise the opportunity to do well in competitions.  Training with friends also provides an essential social aspect to sport.

Of course we understand that members will not be able to attend every session, for a host of reasons, such as injuries, competing in events, triathlon or others, or playing in team sports, and we support our members taking part in a wide variety of activities.

However we have a long waiting list, and if your child is only going to attend one or two sessions per half term it really isn’t fair on those who are keen to join, and have to wait until a space becomes available.  Plus of course you cannot be your best if you don’t train
