Sticky: Importance Notice for Prospective Members – Insurance

Cork is anxious to really welcome new members to the club and understands that people might like to “try” some of the club sessions before signing up.  Unfortunately as with all sports these days insurance is an important issue.  Insurance for people taking part in Cork Triathlon Club activities is through membership of Triathlon Ireland.  Membership and insurance cover runs from January to December each year.  The club cannot take the risk of claims being made against it as a result of allowing non-TI members partake in club events. For this reason the club has to insist that everyone taking part in club events must be a current member of Triathlon Ireland either full member or associate member.  It is only possible for intending members to “guest” at the training events for a maximum of three sessions, after that they must be members of both Triathlon Ireland and CTC.  At all of the club organised events someone from the club will have a guest sign-on sheet, non-members taking part must sign in.  Membership and insurance cover runs from January to December so even people who were members for 2011 are not covered if they have not yet rejoined for the current years.  Membership of Triathlon Ireland is €53 for full membership or €18 for associate membership.  If associate membership is taken race licenses will have to be purchased for every race entered.
