We understand how important it is to keep a routine and so we try to keep our training sessions as consistent as possible. Occasionally we will need to change the timing and/or location of a training session in response to weather, availability of our coaches or availability of venue. Updates are routinely posted to our exclusive facebook group and published in the weekly newsletter.

Women in Tri

Hawthorn Triathlon Club prides itself on providing a friendly, supportive and inclusive environment to all members. Recognising that there can be actual and perceived barriers to participation, the Women in HTC
Working Group has been developed to:

  • Develop and implement initiatives to increase the engagement and
    retention of female participants, committee members and coaches in HTC
  • Work with Triathlon Victoria Women in Triathlon Working Group
    to implement actions of the Triathlon Victoria Gender Equity Report 2019
  • Represent HTC by attending Triathlon Victoria events and seminars
  • Set a positive example to others in supporting a positive and inclusive
    club culture

Since its inception in late 2020, the group has already had success in implementing additional informal training session times that meet the needs of caregivers and those working flexibly, and have hosted a number of social and educational opportunities for members of the Club.
