  • THE FIT MEMBERSHIP YEAR ENDED ON 30 JUNE 2014. PLEASE JOIN OR REJOIN NOW TO BE A FINANCIAL MEMBER.
  • YOU CAN ATTEND 2 SESSIONS WITHOUT CHARGE TO FIND OUT WHAT WE'RE ABOUT -- WE'RE SURE YOU'LL LIKE IT!! - AFTER THAT PLEASE SUPPORT THE CLUB BY PAYING OUR MODEST MEMBERSHIP FEES TO KEEP COMING ALONG.

FIT MEMBERSHIP

  • From 2014, in order to join FIT you'll now also need to become a member of our sport's peak representative body Triathlon Australia (TA) and its local arm Triathlon ACT (TACT).
  • One of the benefits of this affiliation will be to increase insurance cover for FIT and its volunteers.
  • For most members this will mean a small increase of $5 in annual fees to cover TA/CT membership, as well as FIT annual membership fees which will remain the same for 2014-15:
    • $45 for renewing members
    • $50 for new members.

A small additional processing fee also applies.

  • There's more information here - please take the time to read this so you understand the new approach.
  • Membership for the upcoming year now goes via the Triathlon Australia website where you can complete your FIT & TA/CT membership in one easy process by clicking on the following:

Please note that you need to obtain a TA membership first through the above TA website. From there you can choose the Females in Training Club to obtain a FIT membership.

Please also note that you require:

-         a TA Adult membership if you wish to participate in triathlons

-         a TA non-competing/non-training membership if you just want a FIT membership and not participate in any triathlons or triathlon training

  • NOTE: If you have previously taken out a multi-year membership that has not expired you still need to join and pay the TA/CT fee according to your choice of membership level. FIT has sent multi-year members a code to use so you don't pay the FIT membership fee again. If you don't have this please email janehome@grapevine.com.au. Multi-year memberships are no longer available.
