Our club is run by a committee consisting of an enthusiastic group of people all keen to make our club grow and flourish. We need new committee members to join to continue this role as there are a number of current committee members leaving this season. 

It’s now time to send in your Committee Nominations in preparation for the upcoming AGM. These are due by no later than 14th August. The Committee selection process requires that people self-nominate or nominate others they think would be good on the Committee. To make a nomination, you must print out the form found on our website (see here), fill it out, get the required signatures, and then email it to president@northcoasttriclub.org.au by 14th August. Don’t leave it to the last minute! 

During the AGM nomination forms are read by the President and votes are taken from the floor to secure the positions. Every Member of NCTC has the right to both nominate and vote for the committee positions so you are encouraged to act now and be involved in the future of North Coast Tri Club. The AGM is on 3pm Sunday 30th August (afternoon following the City to Surf).



Here is the summary of the NCTC training sessions for the week. Please refer to the calendar on the club website for more details or follow the links below.


*  TRYSTARS SWIMMING:  Arena 25 m pool, 6pm

Trystars swimming will resume tonight for a 9 week block. Please remember to bring your fins and goggles, and get your swim card signed off at the start of the session. 


*  CLUB RIDE:  6-7.20am, Iluka Loop

Summer athletes are made in Winter! Don’t get slack over winter just because it’s dark and cold – you need to get your base training in ready for the triathlon season. With a number of events coming up early in the season such as Mandurah 70.3 and the Rottnest Triathlon, plus all those doing IMWA, there should be lots of you needing to get out on your bike.

This week, we will be trialing a slight modification to the route (not detailed on the map), so please come 5 minutes early to get the briefing at 5:55am for a 6am sharp start.  More info and links to maps can be found here.

Sessions runs for about 1 hr and bikes and cars are secured in the locked carpark so we can leave our gear and walk through the centre to have breakfast/coffee at Orion Café (located on the other side of Whitfords near the NAB bank).

* RUN: INTERVAL TRAINING : Moolanda Park,  6-7pm

Winter run sessions are at Moolanda Park, Moolanda Boulevard,  Kingsley. Rob Lees will be away until early September. Pippa Davis will be coaching the sessions in his absence.  These fun interval sessions are suitable for all levels and running experience. All welcome to come along and give it a go!  



Outdoor pool with David M. –  Daytime swimming is glorious at Craigie! No other squads are on during this time and we’re getting a great turnout and some big improvements are happening to those that are coming regularly. David’s session includes a mix of drills and some threshold work. We have 2 lanes and cater for all levels. Please bring your Fins, Pull Buoy, Paddles (we have some club PB and Paddles available). 



A Club Duathlon is held on the first Saturday of every month from June-September.  The Duathlons are considered training, not a race.
