Those wishing to train for triathlon (i.e. all three disciplines) are required to join Triathlon Australia (TA).  

Joining TA and listing Red Dog Triathlon Training (RDTT) as your club gives you a discounted TA membership, Triathlon Queensland membership and RDTT membership.

RDTT Membership costs $20 for the 2017/18 season. This is paid when renewing/joining TA (and managed by Active).

TA offers you insurance whilst training for and racing in TA/TQ sanctioned events, priority entry to selected events and other members benefits.

RDTT members will receive a membership card to receive discounts offered exclusively by our sponsors and two bike stickers (eg one for road bike & other for TT bike as required) which must be attached in order to participate in any RDTT ride.

RDTT recommends all athletes undergo an annual health check and a check up prior to beginning any new training program.  Please advise us of any existing medical issues or any arising from the health check ups.

Tragically there have been a number of athletes who have recently died while competing in various events and / or training. In some instances their respective medical conditions had been undiagnosed. 

Triathlon (and the respective three disciplines) is a physically intensive sport whereby any underlying or new medical condition can be exacerbated by an individual’s pursuits and training.

All Red Dog athletes (both new and continuing) and whether training at the scheduled sessions, on programs, or on their own, need to ensure that they are satisfied with their medical health being sufficient such that they are capable of engaging in the training sessions that they embark upon.

While encouragement is expected from any coach, should anyone feel at any point during a session that they are unable to continue, or have concerns about their health, they must cease training and report this to me or the particular coach immediately.

It is incumbent upon all athletes of the club and any new members to seek medical assistance for any condition that they suffer, to have regular check-ups from their doctor / allied health practitioners and to ensure that there are no symptoms, injuries, or underlying medical conditions being suffered from that prevent them from training.

Athletes need to follow the recommendations of any treating medical practitioner, report them to me and ensure that they are cleared to resume training before they do so.
