Become a member of the Biggest and Best Triathlon Club in the UK – DEAL TRI.
Membership Details and Forms
With just over 400 members training and competing locally, nationally and in the International arena, Deal Tri rightly claims to be one of the largest and most successful multi-sports clubs in the United Kingdom.
Now in its 27th year Deal Tri has something for all ages and all abilities – from juniors through to Super Vets – for Triathletes, Duathletes, Runners, Cyclists and Swimmers – with training sessions that encourage members to get involved and improve their techniques in a welcoming and friendly environment. The Club is ideal for all people from those wanting to try out multi-sports for the first time to the experienced Ironman triathlete. Please note there are no free or trial swimming sessions. Swim sessions are for paid up members only.
Please also note that as our Saturday cycle rides are on the open road we are unable to accomodate members under 16 on these rides.
Current Membership Form (and if you are Under 16 - Parental Consent Form) are available here and attached to the bottom of this page. Please note that membership applications have to be approved by the Club Committee. The Committee meets on a monthly basis on the second Monday of each month. Please also note that the Club membership year runs from January to December, there is no discount for joining at any other point of the year. However, people joining after 1st October each year can enjoy membership for the remaining period of that year and the following 12 months. Please see note below in respect of UKA licence.
Current Membership prices are shown on the 2013 Membership Form. There are discount rates for Students and Unemployed, but please note these already discounted rates are not subject to further discounts for marshaling duties, which the applicant is still required to complete each year. These discounted rates DO NOT INCLUDE UK ATHLETICS AFFILIATION. If you require a UKA licence then add £5-00* to your application fee making a total cost of £18-00.
Please note that UK Athletics year runs from 1st April each year until 31st March of the following year. If applying for UKA licence please indicate if you want it start immeadiately or whether you will to wait until April. *From April 2013 UKA licence increases to £10-00 per annum.
We also expect members to race, and where possible train, in Deal Tri clothing. Upon joining we ask that you purchase at least a running vest or cycle jersey. Clothing is available from the on line Kit Store or by contacting Club Clothing Officers, Sally and Dave Scoggins. All senior members of the Club are expected to marshal one Club or Open event each year to qualify for membership discount the following year.
Before filling in the form and joining it is very important that you review your health and we recommend a fitness review and check up with your G.P. or Doctor. We also ask that you have adequate third party insurance in place to cover for any eventualities when racing or training as Deal Tri does not provide this for members currently. Then download and read the following documents:
1) Equality & Anti Bullying Policy
2) Codes of Conduct
3) Child & Vulnerable Adults Protection Policy
4) Photographic Policy
5) Health and Safety Policy
The club hosts numerous open and Club only racing events throughout the year in addition to the regular weekly training activities and a number of social functions ranging from quiz nights through skittles evenings through awards nights for Juniors and Seniors to the annual Christmas dinner dance. As part of joining Deal Tri we do ask that all adult members commit themselves to helping out at one of our open races throughout the year. Details of Club training session and races are shown within the website Events pages on the monthly calendar.
With over 90 junior members and a junior representative we are actively developing junior specific training sessions and, wherever possible, races and other events alongside the senior events or as stand alone events like the Fun Kids Triathlon which is still growing in popularity year on year. We do ask that a parent or guardian join the Club with any junior to comply with our Child Protection Policy. The adult does not have to be active but we do ask that they attend junior training sessions and marshal an event such as The Fun Kids Triathlon, or any other open race event throughout the Club year.
