Important notice to ALL members of the Ballina Triathlon Club.
We are holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday the 9th of October.
We will meet at the Prospect Lake, boat shed @ 07:00 for a leisurely jog followed by a hearty breakfast. Shortly following this we will hold our AGM where all positions will be open. This is estimated to take 30mins. Positions are as follows:

President
Vice President
Secretary
Treasurer

Multiple positions for sub-committee, this will entail:

Race Director: Responsible for the sanctioning and running of race events.
Timing Manager: Responsible for setting up Race Timing and reporting results.
Registration Manager: Responsible for creating the on-line race registration and athlete checking in.
Transition Manager: Responsible for the consistent set up / tear down of the Transition environment.
Swim Course Manager: Responsible for the consistent set up / tear down of the swim course.
Bike Course Manager: Responsible for the consistent set up / tear down of the bike course.
Run Course Manager: Responsible for the consistent set up / tear down of the run course.
Catering/Cooking Manager: Responsible for purchasing food, drink and bbq.
Juniors Manager: Responsible for Junior race events.
Water Safety: Responsible for safety of competitors in the water.

As you can see there is a lot that goes into making a single event happen, let alone an entire season so we hope that all these positions are filled so we can achieve a successful years racing. Without the help required there is a very good chance that our season wont go ahead.

Thanks

Peter Charlton (President)

    CALLING ALL JUNIOR TRI ATHLETES!

    Spring has sprung and that means triathlon season is just around the corner, so I hope all budding Junior tri athletes have been training hard and are aiming to set some personal best performances over the summer months.

    Junior development is an important area for the Ballina Triathlon Club and we encourage our up and coming Juniors to get involved in this fantastic sport at a young age. It is a great way to stay fit and healthy and enjoy exercise in a safe, non-competitive club environment.

    Did you know Juniors aged 13-19 are eligible to race alongside the adults in the club Duathlon / Triathlon Series. Juniors aged 13-19 may compete in the Enticer distance, Juniors aged 14-19 may compete in the Sprint distance and Juniors aged 16-19 may compete in the Club distance events.

    Over the winter months the Ballina Triathlon Club race team have been working hard establishing races for our Junior Kids (7-12 years) to run alongside the adult races to create family race day atmosphere for all.

    There will be two events, held completely off road around Prospect Lake, East Ballina.
    Junior (7-9 years) swim 100 m, bike 3 km, run 500 m.
    Junior (10-12 years) swim 200 m, bike 6 km, run 1 km.
    Note: You must be a member of Ballina Triathlon Club and/or Triathlon Australia to compete in the Junior (7-12 years)
    Note: All Junior (7-12 years) members of the Ballina Triathlon Club/Triathlon Australia will race for free.
    Note: Each family MUST provide a minimum of one Parent or Guardian (18+) to volunteer as marshalls along the swim, bike, run course to ensure the competitors stay safe and do not get lost.

    First race is scheduled for Sunday, October 23, 2016. On-line Entries open Friday October 7. Mark the dates in your calendar now!

    So join up or renew your membership now to avoid disappointment.

    I look forward to seeing all our Junior members on the start line ready to race.
