HAPPY NEW YEAR! We hope you saw in the new year surrounded by family & friends! This week, training returns to “normal programming”. Please check out the calendar for everything going on in and around the club!


* TRYSTARS RUN & CYCLE TRAINING starts back on Feb 13th, 2015

Although our training doesn’t resume for a little while, there are lots of events taking place for the Trystars to participate in. The second tadpoles race of the season is on at Champion Lakes this weekend. Check out the tadpoles website for more information on the events and to sign up. Lots of kids events are also included on our calendar. Trystar events are orange.


The junior club ride is departing from SSLSC this saturday. Please be there at 6.15am for a 6.30am start. Don’t forget to wear your ID wristband.

Please note: CT cycling will not be on the 17th January as Kevin is presenting at the Mountain Bike coaching course.



Kristy’s plans have changed and she is now available to coach the indoor session at Craigie on Wednesday night at 6.30am. This session is technique based and perfect for CT’s and those of us looking to develop their confidence and stroke.

This week is my (Janine) first session coaching in the outdoor pool after the sad departure of Clare. The session will be a mix of technique and tempo work.

* AQUATHLON 7 – 9th January, 5.45pm

The next Aquathlon is race 7 on this coming Friday at the Sorrento Surf Life saving club. Registration is at 5.45pm, and race briefing at 6pm. Come along to participate or spectate. Distances are usually a swim of 400m to 600m, and a run from 3.2 to 3.4km. The bar will be open and the club will be selling BBQ hamburgers $5.00 and sausage sizzle $2.50. These are a great social night for everyone to attend!

The amazing Al & Suzie from Als Cycle Surgery have very generously offered to sponsor the Aquathlon series again this year with another sensational bike on offer!   This is the major prize for the Aquathlon series and to qualify,  members must compete in at least 6 of the events over the 12 event series (see dates here)  We are also very grateful that 3 of our members,  David & Michelle Martin (ExplorOz),  Lisa Vass (Sorrento Sports Massage) and Eve O’Hare (Eve’s PT Plus),  have generously donated  spot prizes at events. We hope to see you there!!:)
