Technical Official Course

Upcoming Local Technical Official Courses

Being a technical official is the most fun you can have when you're not actually racing! It's a great way to 'give back' to the sport and (most importantly) earn extra points for Club Championships in 2016! Just ask Ben Browne, one of BTC's resident TO's (along with the wonderful Rachel Monahan) who at less than one year in has already Officialed at Husky and Club Champs. Details are below on the upcoming course in Vincentia.

On behalf of Triathlon Australia, we will be conducting an LTO course at

Vincentia Golf Club on 21st November (2pm to 6pm).

If you have family or friends who would like to help in ensuring that our events are safe and fair, please tell them about these opportunities. Candidates will have the opportunity to participate as a trainee official on the Field of Play at the Huski Festival on the following day.

Registration is via this link, or can also be found on the Triathlon NSW website:https://regonline.activeglobal.com/trinswtechnicaleducation.

 

BTC Juniors Try Stars program starting soon

TryStars starts on the 20th of November! For full info on the program click here.

TryStars is a  junior participation program for 7-12 yr olds that encourages kids to get involved in triathlon all around Australia and we are running the program again this year after great success last year. It consists of 8 x 1 hour sessions will be held at Balmoral Beach on Friday evenings (perfect opportunity for mum and dad to participate in the aquathlons while the kids are kept busy!).

It is the best way for kids to get involved in triathlon and have as much fun as their parents. We have great coaches who will be overseeing the program and ensuring your kids have fun and learn new skills in a safe environment. All participants receive a pack of goodies including rash vest, towel, drink bottle.

The program coincides with our kids club race which will be in the week following the last session.

Cost is $120 per child which includes TA & Club membership and BTC Junior race entry. The cost for club membership for existing club members is refundable.

Rego needs to close by the 5th of November to allow for participant pack orders, so register below!!!
