MEMBERSHIP & TRAINING

Whether you are starting out in the world of triathlon or racing competitively, MTC is the club that has it all! We are a dynamic, engaging and welcoming community

Membership Benefits

We have invested in two large MTC tents that are present on race days.

Members have a central location on race day to meet, warm up together, cheer each other on and socialise! We also provide food and massage services to help you recover from your race.

MTC holds some awesome Social Events including a yearly End of Race Season Awards Night/Party subsidised for all MTC members, a start of season launch and unofficial post training breakfasts.

We also have occasional product/educational nights held by our partners/sponsors involving everything from training and nutrition to learning how to maintain your bike!

In association with Fluid Movements, our coaching provider, we also hold regular training camps during the on and off season, open to all members to attend.

We have some fantastic partners who offer discounts and benefits to our members.

The MTC Uniform is one of the most recognised ‘strips’ on Beach Road! Members receive an automatic discount on all MTC branded triathlon and cycling gear through our uniform providers.

All MTC members are welcome on our Saturday morning long rides. The rides vary in location, often rotating between Beach Rd (roll out from Port Melbourne), the Dandenongs and Kinglake (roll out from Kew) as well as race specific ride/run sessions at various locations. These sessions cater for all levels of athlete and are hosted by our training provider, Fluid Movements. Information on meeting times and placed are sent out in the club’s e-news that all members receive.

Fluid Movements are our coaching provider who offer competitive coaching programs and squad based training for all levels operating  from various inner city based locations.

Fluid Movements also run our regular MTC/Fluid six week beginner courses to help introduce new comers to triathlon.

Membership FAQ

Great value:

  • Adult: $70 per year
  • Adults on a financial Fluid Movements Training Program: $50 (subsidised) per year
  • Full time teritiary student/junior (under 16): $50 per year
  • Social Membership: $40

*Having a financial membership with a recognised Triathlon Club (like MTC) in Victoria entitles you to a discounted Tri Vic / Tri AU membership fee (reduced from $209 per year to $125 per year) entitling you to many benefits including reduced race entry fees and priority entry to popular races. So taking into account all the great benefits on offer and the reduced Tri Vic membership, becoming a member of the Melbourne Tri Club pays for itself!

If you want to try before you buy then please contact us via email so we can explain the trial membership process. The 2-week Tri VIC trial membership will allow you to participate in our Saturday rides and get a feel of the club.

Yes! MTC offers social memberships

What makes MTC different is that you can still be a member of the club, taking advantage of all the benefits without having to commit to structured training or racing with the club. This is perfect for member’s partners who want to join in on the social side of the club or help out on race days etc.

As an MTC member, you have access to the free Saturday long ride and Sunday long run. Details of these are communicated on a weekly basis to our members via email/social media.

If you are looking for a coached option, our coaching provider, Fluid Movements offer a range of programs, which can either be followed in the squad environment or via correspondence. All programs are written individually based on your goals and available time. Contact us via the Contact Us section to find out more and to be put in touch with Fluid.

In collaboration with Fluid Movements, we run beginners courses periodically through the year. They are great if you’re completely new to the sport or if you’ve done a couple of tri’s and want to improve your skills. It’s a great way to meet new people and train and learn in a fun and supportive environment. For more information about our next beginners course, please contact us via the contact us page.

Need to know more? Send us an email via our contact us page and we will aim to reply within 48 hours.
