Communicating with our members
The Triad Triathlon Team has many members and followers. We communicate with members and followers using 3 means.

The primary means is our Facebook page. Please follow us on Facebook (Triad Tri Team) regularly. This is where events/activities are usually announced first. In addition, because of the interactive nature of Facebook, our members can ask questions and post their training sessions inviting other members to join them.

Another means is our Newsletter, if you are a member and are not receiving TTT Newsletters or simply would like to receive our Newsletter, please contact us.

We also try to keep our website as up to date as possible. The website is our main means of providing information to potential members and also includes valuable information for members such as the local events calendar, race reports, information about our sponsors and members only discounts, as well as information about how to join our team.

Recurring TTT Activities
TTT Monthly Meetings

The TTT plans on having regular monthly meetings. These meetings provide an opportunity for TTT members and potential members to socialize and meet each other outside of a regular training session. This is also an opportunity to find out firsthand about what is going on in the Triad Triathlon Team, learn about upcoming events/activities, suggest new activities, and get involved. The TTT is only as good as the efforts put into it by its members. We also try to provide value to our members by having a guest speakers present about a topic which is Tri related. Location and topics vary, so remain on the lookout for additional information.

TTT Training Activities

We currently have a number of members who have offered to lead team training sessions. If you are interested in starting a regular activity, please contact us to discuss how to best get this organized and setup.
