ATC AGM ’Feedback - Membership Fees - Levies

Since the start of the current Triathlon and Running seasons, we've gained over 130 new members!  Welcome all!  You're in for a busy year with a jam-packed calendar of Swim, Bike, Run and Triathlon events.

At the ATC Annual General Meeting, held on 8 December 2022, we reviewed the Membership numbers and finances over the last couple of years (the Covid period), to demonstrate the effect that the pandemic had on our membership base and finances.  Affirming that certain measures are needed to recover from this set-back, as well as to migrate to a more financially sustainable model, whilst remaining one of the most cost-effective clubs, offering fit-for-purpose membership rates and levies.

Club Membership rates will be simplified and reduced (in most cases) to cater for members who join but do not use any of our World-Class training facilities.  Membership is, as it has been for several years, valid for a 12-month period from the date of payment.  All our membership options will be at a flat rate of R300 per year.  Scholars (R60 pa), Students (R200 pa) and Country (R250 pa) members will still receive reduced rates.

Our training levy, for access to the Track Run and Canal Swim, will change from an annual fee to a monthly subscription.  For existing members (Membership active and paid-up as of 31 March 2023),  this will be R50 per month for each facility.  For new members, who join after 31 March 2023, the levy will be R100 per month for each facility.
All annual levies purchased on or before 31 March 2023 will be honoured for 12 months from date of purchase.
Scholars, Students and Pensioners do not pay the training levy.
The above will be effective from COB on 31 March 2023.

ATC remains a not-for-profit organisation, passionate about promoting our sport of Swimming, Cycling,  Running, and any combination thereof, to everyone. Therefore, any member who faces financial constraints to join our club or attend our training sessions, is most welcome to approach the committee for an alternate arrangement.  Please email admin@atcmultisport.club or contact us on 073 308 3127.
