About the project

If you've made it this far you know and appreciate the massive physical and social benefits of being a member of a triathlon club. Club membership has a positive effect on an individual's well-being and mental health and the effects are much greater in group training and competition than individual sporting activities.

Being a triathlon club member is practical (group training, coaching, information, programs, etc) but it is the intangibles like friendship, inspiration, belonging, connectedness that are most important and the sense of being on the same team, part of the TRIbe.

Triathlon Victoria has launched the Pay It Forward campaign to give members who are able to, the opportunity to make a donation to cover the cost of a club membership for someone who is struggling financially.

Through our fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, these donations are tax-deductible.

Choose a membership category to support: 

  • $200 adult membership (includes Triathlon Australia and club fees)
  • $100 junior membership (includes Triathlon Australia and club fees)
  • $50 non-competing membership (includes Triathlon Australia and club fees)

or select Other if you are simply making a general donation. 

If you'd like to 'pay it forward' to a particular club, simply place the club name in your donation message and we'll take care of the rest.

Thanks for 'paying it forward'.

    hope this small donation helps someone move forward with a more positive day week and month, I encourage other coaches to donate also if they can. Especially the big coaching groups that had lots of big groups and clients. I am an individual coach with a small group of athletes only so it is a big effort for me to fund a donation but it is important. Please do what you can.
