Why become a member?
Bilbys are a friendly and welcoming club suitable for all ages and abilities. Members of the Bilbys join the club for a range of different reasons; whether it be to train with a squad at the pool, be a part of the group bike rides, receive expert coaching from our Level 1 and 2 Triathlon Coaches, to lose weight, improve general health and lifestyle, enjoy the social aspect of being part of a team or club. Whatever your motives the Bilbys will endeavour to help you achieve your goals.
The Bilbys Triathlon Club and is affiliated with Triathlon ACT and Triathlon Australia, and has a membership base of around 300 like-minded individuals. Membership of Triathlon Australia is a complusory part of Bilbys membership.
To learn more about the club we recommend coming along to a Tuesday running track session (see Training Schedule). It is the easiest way to learn more about the sport and meet some of the members of the club.
We have now combined with the Triathlon Australia membership process so that you can sign up for both your TA and Bilbys membership in a single transaction. You will then receive a TA membership card that lists Bilbys as your chosen club. This card will be your membership card for both TA and Bilbys and your membership for both will run from 1 July to 30 June each year.
To renew your Bilbys membership, please go to the membership section of the Triathlon ACT website and follow the prompts.
Please note this method is now the only method you will be able to use to join Bilbys or to renew your Bilbys membership as we can no longer accept memberships on our website or through the old paper form. With the TA membership component, you have the choice of a $150 competing licence or a $10 non-competing licence. Note that the non-competing Triathlon ACT licence does not allow you to race in triathlon and does not offer insurance for you or anyone you may injure in training.
After joining or renewing, please contact the Bilbys Clothing Officer to get your T-shirt, cap or socks.
