Club Survey Headlines

Thank you to all who completing the club survey. There was a 70% response rate, and your views have certainly provided the committee with a sound basis to work from in 2015.

I'd like to share some of the main headlines, with key actions that the Committee will be putting in place over the coming year:

*Overall you think that PACTRAC is a friendly and welcoming club, with overall satisfaction being very high. This is great news to start.

*The majority of members joined initially because they were new to triathlon, and to take part in club events and swim sessions.

*Interestingly too, the main aspirations of members are fairly evenly split; with equal numbers "just wanting to keep fit", right through to seeking to qualify/ compete at GB level.

So PACTRAC is truly a diverse club, & with many members new to triathlon over the last 3 years.

There was also a good (albeit lower) level of satisfaction with the provision of club training opportunities and coaching. This is something that club coaches will be considering when they meet shortly. We are also seeking to add more qualified coaches to the ranks - and anyone wishing to volunteer to help run training/coaching sessions will be supported by the club through your BTF level 1 qualifications.

Other additional matters which the Committee has recently discussed are:1. Implement a volunteer rota for club events (with members responsible for swapping dates if not convenient);
2. Refreshements at club events - a volunteer is needed to take forward coordination;
3. Female trophies for all club events. Committee agree for all event except Biathlon (as a handicap event there is no gender bias);
4. More Social events - a volunteer is needed to join Committee as "Social Secretary"; and
5. Training weekend reestablished - Date for the diary for 2015 - Sat 2nd/ Sun 3rd May.
