GTC Update for the 2021 Triathlon and Duathlon Season
Welcome to GTC!
December has snuck up on us and now many of us are starting to look forward to 2021.
GTC’s exec team has been hard at work making sure we have a plan in place to ensure great triathlon training throughout the year, and are feeling hopeful that this coming season will be a little bit more like usual than the last one.
Registration is now open for 2021 Annual GTC Membership. We continue to keep our fees low at $175 for 100+ coached workouts over the year. As always, Triathlon Ontario membership is a requirement for all members for insurance purposes, ensure that you register as a “club member” and indicate your GTC affiliation for a $10 discount on TO membership.
Our winter programming will include:
Wednesday Evening Virtual Spin: Starting Jan. 6. Offered through the (free!) app Discord, use any type of trainer or stationary bike at home to join these sessions by GTC instructors for GTC members only. You will be able to get instructions, ask questions, and chat with other members via the app throughout the workout.
Sunday Afternoon Swims: Starting Jan. 10. Coached by Miguel and/or Santiago. Two back-to-back sessions with 2 swimmers in each lane will allow us to safely maintain social distancing protocols while allowing up to 32 members to participate each week. A sign-up will be required to reserve a spot, but we do not anticipate demand to exceed spots.
For Spring/Summer programming, we will start outdoor bric workouts in April, as usual. Outdoor swims and Sunday swim/bike will begin in June.
We are also pleased to report that we have secured an agreement to swim at the Victoria Quarry again this summer, although a modest membership fee may apply (this was covered by the GTC for our members in 2020).
We hope to see you all out at practice soon!
