Getting Started

 

To learn more about the team, show up to a workout and introduce yourself! (See our practice calendar for information on times and locations.) Look for one of our officers if you have any questions. For liability purposes, make sure to register for DoSportsEasy,  and fill out our team roster before attending any practices (see steps 1-2 on "How to Join").

We offer a two-week free-trial period to new members for the first two weeks of fall and of winter quarter. After the trial period is over, all athletes are required to pay dues before attending any practices. Members joining at other times of the year should go to office hours with our head coach for on-boarding and to determine a healthy practice schedule.

Athletes who want to take advantage of our race subsidies and sponsorship benefits will have to complete (usually easy and fun) member responsibilities.

Dues

 

Dues are not, under any circumstances, refundable. This includes injuries or any other unforeseen circumstances.

We offer a two-week free trial period at the beginning of fall and winter quarter to allow new members to try out the team for free. Starting the Monday of Week 3, all athletes must pay dues to attend practice.

To pay dues, bring cash (in an envelope labeled with your name) or a check made out to Stanford Triathlon Club with you to practice and give it to one of the officers or coaches.

Rates

  • Academic year: $115 per quarter, $300 for entire academic year.

  • Summer: $30.

Member Responsibilities

 

In order for our team to function with the limited resources we have as a club team, we depend on every member to spend time volunteering for the team outside of practice. To qualify for race subsidies and our sponsorship deals, we require all team members to do the following:

1. Complete 12 team job credits throughout the year (or 4 per quarter). Athletes going to Collegiate Nationals must complete 16 job credits to offset the cost of racing out of state.

  • Members can receive job credits for things like moving trainers to and from swike workouts or volunteering at varsity Field Hockey games. Job credit opportunities will be posted on the team mailing list.

  • We do not want our job credits system to stress you out! If you're feeling overwhelmed or behind on job credits, reach out to any of the officers and we'll help you find ways to catch up!

2. Volunteer at our home race, Treeathlon. Team members are expected to spend ALL DAY Saturday and ALL DAY Sunday of Treeathlon weekend (usually the first weekend of March) volunteering at the race course in Redwood City. Treeathlon is our biggest fundraiser of the year and would not be possible without help from our members.

3. Sign up for at least four hours of volunteer shifts for Stanford's Reunion Homecoming in October. Every year we volunteer at Stanford's Reunion Homecoming as a way to give back to The Stanford Fund (TSF) for their financial support of our team. Look out for an email from our Administrative VP early with info fall quarter.

Mailing Lists

 

There are two mailing lists:

We also use Slack to manage internal communication. You will be added to the Slack when you pay dues. 

Friend of the Team Status

 

For Stanford-affiliated non-students (alums, postdocs,  faculty, staff,...) we are debuting a new option.  Friend of the Team status gets you:

  • Access to our training plan on Training Peaks

  • Access to all non-coached workouts and pickup workouts organized by team members. Our regularly-scheduled non-coached workouts usually include 1-2 trainer workouts on weekday evenings, and long runs and rides on the weekend. Team members frequently organize ad-hoc swims, rides, and runs via Slack.

  • Our team slack channel, useful for for setting up workouts with other team members and participating in our community.

 

This status does NOT grant access to coached workouts or coaching from our staff; we cannot offer this due to limitations from Stanford.

Dues are $50/quarter. Send an email to the current president, administrative vice-president, and/or financial officer if you are interested in this option.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Message for the 2020-2021 Academic Year:

Welcome to the Stanford Triathlon team website! With the ongoing pandemic, the Stanford University Triathlon Team cannot operate as usual. We will not be having any in-person practices and events at this time. The following applies for this year. Other information on this page is from past years and will be how we operate in the future.

 

1. Fill out THIS google form to add yourself to the internal team roster.​

2. Join our mailing list by sending a blank e-mail to triathlon-join@lists.stanford.edu.

This is used for major announcements & weekly schedule updates, but most other communication happens through the team Slack workspace. You will be added to Slack when you pay dues.

3. Show up to virtual practice! Details will be distributed via the mailing list.

4. Pay dues. For Fall 2020, dues are $40. This year dues can only be paid for each quarter individually, since the status of reopening may change. Dues will be due October 10th and details on how to pay will be distributed on the mailing list.

5. Sign our Non-Disclosure Agreement to access our awesome team sponsorship deals.

 

Before the dues deadline of October 10th, anyone interested can be on our mailing list and attend virtual practices and socials! After that anyone who has paid dues will be added to our Slack and private mailing list, which will be used for communications for the rest of the quarter.  

Paying dues also gets you access to our training plan and our sponsorship deals.

Update 10/12/2020: Due to some delays in setting up dues payment, the Fall 2020 trial period will extend through at least October 20th.
