Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

Calling all North Coasters. Expressions of interest are now open for places in the North Coast’s Busselton 70.3 training squad. Commencing Monday Jan 29, the 14 week squad experience will be something you won’t want to miss. Be you a first timer, (especially for you guys) seasoned vet, male, female, young or old, the squad is a wonderful opportunity to grow and expand your ability and knowledge in the sport of long course triathlon, all whilst enjoying the wonderful camaraderie of old and new friends and the many benefits that training in a likeminded focussed group brings. You simply will never experience these things outside of the squad environment. To register your interest please email brad@t6d.com.au. Dates and times for an information night will be posted soon.


During December there will be changes to the some of the Friday Swim sessions.  Keep your eye on our Facebook page for the details.  This week and next week will be 11am start times.


Barry Silverlock will once again be holding his Beginner/Intermediate 70.3 Seminars, with the first session on 16th December.  Barry is a Life Member of NCTC and has participated in many Ironmans and 70.3 Ironmans and is a wealth of information and advice for not only the first timer but the experienced athlete as well. Barry’s workshops will take you through every aspect and twist and turn you could ever come across whilst competing. If Barry doesn’t know it it’s not worth knowing! Come along to all or any number of Barry’s workshops and have your questions answered.

This workshop is FREE for club members!  Please email Moya at secretary@northcoasttriclub.org.au to register.
