Membership

How to practice with the team:

In order to join the team or practice with us, you must first sign a waiver: https://clubsports.mit.edu/join-a-club/. Click on triathlon and use your MIT email to login and submit the waiver.
Secondly, you should subscribe to our email list to receive up to date weekly practices and announcements. Information about our email list can be found here: http://mailman.mit.edu/mailman/listinfo/triathlon. Our practices are also usually on our website:http://triathlon.mit.edu/workouts/, but the email list is usually more accurate as we can cancel/add additional practices.

How to join the team:

For the Triathlon Team, we have two types of memberships: racing membership ($140/year) and non-racing membership ($30/year).

Membership and Dues Information (May 2019-May 2020)

Non-racing members: $30. We ask that if you are regularly attending workouts that you please pay this level of dues to help support the club’s costs and growth, even if you will not be racing often with the club. This level of membership gives access to renting club equipment and all sponsorship deals the club has (e.g. Xterra wetsuits, ROKA discounts, etc.), and undergrads with this membership additionally receive one race reimbursement (excluding Collegiate Nationals). The registration reimbursements can be found here: Reimbursement. To race more than that, undergrads will need to pay the next tier of dues.

MIT Student Racing members: $140. This membership level provides the same benefits as above, and in addition allows you to race at any number of the season’s targeted (club-sponsored) races and get reimbursed for registration and transportation. The registration reimbursements can be found here: Reimbursement. Please note that the registration fee might be only partially reimbursed for some races. Dues cover one entire season of racing (i.e. May 1st, 2019 – May 1st, 2020), and must be paid before your first race.

Cycling Team Discount: Triathlon racing members will be able to join the the cycling team’s racing membership for a $70 discount!

It provides the same benefits as club membership, and in addition, allows you to race at any number of the club-sponsored races targeted this season. The club will reimburse the race fee for 3 team sponsored races.The registration reimbursements can be found here: Reimbursement.
