club bylaws and “family membership”

A friendly reminder that the TAT BYLAWS DEFINITION of “Family” is:

“one parent or a couple and their offspring under 18 years of age”.

It costs the club $6.00 per person to insure each member, so PLEASE do not sign up your one-year old, for example, or a family member who is not truly participating in triathlon (Gramps and Aunt Eunice).

Furthermore, ORU has asked us in the past to *not* promote a TAT membership just as a way of bypassing regular ORU gym membership. They feel that the pool use is a perk for true TAT members. We do NOT want to wreck the great relationship between TAT and ORU pool!

Although not spelled out in TAT bylaws, let’s agree that the youngest age that can be on our  club roster is the youngest age USAT allows for Youth Competition, which is six years old.

Membership dues are very low already. So let’s play fair.

Thanks,

Carolyn (president) and Matt (membership)

Coach Janet’s 2012 SWIM CAMPS are set

Tulsa Area Triathletes – Summer Swim Camps!

 ~ ~ ~Beginner CAMP! ~ ~ ~  Intermediate CAMP! ~ ~ ~ Beginner CAMP! ~ ~ ~ Intermediate CAMP!

  1. Learn to swim or Beginners (LTS):  Monday nights – For those new to triathlon or continuous lap swimming.    8 week camp, Prep for Tri Tulsa Sprint in September
  2.  2.   Mastering the Mile (MTM):  Monday nights – For intermediate swimmers who want to become faster and more efficient in the water.  The workouts are tailored to the participants.  For those looking to do an Olympic or Half Iron Man distance, also to work on form and speed for Sprint or Full Iron Distance.  This is not a Learn to Swim (LTS) class.  I consider it the next step after LTS.  Prep for Tri Tulsa Olympic Distance in September.  Requirements:  Able to Swim a 500 continuously or anyone who has completed a learn to swim camp or clinic.

Both classes include:  One Video of your stroke with detailed e-mail of what to work on, drill instruction, dry land exercises, and pacing and mental prep. for race day.  Also includes workouts to do between classes, usually the classes are broken down into two or three groups and each group gets a workout.  I also try to take notes at most sessions so each individual will get personalized notes.

Where: ORU Aerobics Center 50 meter indoor pool.

When: Monday nights – Learn to Swim – 5:40 to 6:30PM

When: Monday nights – Mastering the Mile – 6:40 to 7:30PM

Date:  Camps will start June 25th. Learn to swim and Mastering the Mile classes go for 8 weeks.  They will meet every week for the 8 weeks unless the pool is closed or I have a scheduling conflict.

Cost:  $120  (I am limiting the Learn to swim camp to 12 people, 8 weeks)  (The Mastering the Mile class is limited to 15 at this time, 8 weeks)
