Getting started with us

Message from previous Club President, Ian Crafter

We understand that it can be daunting to take the first step in trying a new sport and contacting a new club.

On behalf of the Committee of the Dubbo Triathlon Club I would like to invite and encourage anyone thinking about getting involved to get in touch with us so that we can arrange for one of our friendly Committee or Club Members to meet you for your first race or training activity.


The Dubbo Triathlon Club buddy system for newcomers ensures that you will have a point of contact for any questions you might have about the sport or our Club, encourage you to attend training sessions, and introduce you to others along the way. Your buddy will generally be there to help you feel comfortable as you settle in.

You don’t need to join the Club to take advantage of this buddy system. Meet your buddy and some other clubbers, attend a few training sessions and see what we offer as a club before deciding if this is the right sport for you.  You may wish to start with just running, cycling or swimming sessions, or any combination of those to build your fitness and confidence over time.

To further help you transition to the sport we encourage team entries in all of our local races meaning you can have 2 or 3 people competing as a team with one doing the swim, one the ride and one the run.  This is a great way to learn about the sport of triathlon, improve your fitness and meet members in a supportive friendly environment.

Newcomers can attend up to three Club race events before having to take up full membership, although we do remind you that the earlier you join, the better value you get for your annual membership fee.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Dubbo Triathlon Club!

A fun, supportive and social environment catering for athletes of all ages and abilities
