Club meetings

The Sun City committee meet every other month in addition to the yearly AGM.   If your interested – ask where we will be and pop along.

The AGM’s are the formal meetings required by our constitution and we’ll arrange other more or less formal ones as required, if major events crop up and need discussing. The constitution also allows for calling Extraordinary General Meetings (EGMs) if required.

Don’t panic if this sounds a bit formal. The club’s actually really friendly and informal, but we need to make sure all the official boxes get ticked along the way! Any member can raise issues at any time, and there’ll usually be at least one committee member present at a training session. In that sense every training session is a club meeting so come along and get stuck in!
We’re lucky to have experienced and enthusiastic coaches in the club who can help you get the most out of your triathlon training. They can all provide you with general advice and tips and one or more will usually be present at the organised training sessions.
