Fees

Following changes to the way Tri NZ is managing membership of all triathletes throughout New Zealand, we are having to restructure our membership fees accordingly. While we are absorbing some of these costs, we do need to increase our fees (including Tri NZ levies).

This was approved at our AGM on 14 October.

We will now have a two tiered membership system.

  1. Social MTC Club Member – this means you can participate as part of the club for free including extra club activities such as swim sessions; spin classes; Kids I tried the Tri Series (for Under 12 - you will still need to register online before 8th Feb 2019 for free entry to this event), and other events that we may add during the year.
    1. Juniors (Under 23 years) - $60
    2. Seniors (23 years and over) - $100
  2. Tri NZ Club Member – this means you can do all of the above but also means you are licenced to race at any Tri NZ event around New Zealand including National events – including such events as Tinman; 70.3 etc. If you are planning to be a member of the MTA Junior development squad you also need to be joining this not the social membership.
    1. Juniors/MTA (Under 23 years) - $65
    2. Seniors (23 years and over) - $115
  3. Social Family Club Members – this means you can do all of what is described above for social membership and allows maximum of two junior family members to be an MTA development member and includes racing nationally for them. Identify the one or two junior members on the form.
    1. Social Family Membership - $240
  4. Tri NZ Family Club Members – this means you can do all of what is described above for social membership but allows you to identify any family member who intends to race nationally or join MTA development squad. You need to identify on the form which family members are seeking full Tri NZ membership.
    1. Tri NZ Family Membership - $255
