Two Types of Club Membership

Comox Valley Triathlon Club offers members the opportunity to train and compete with triathletes of all levels - or just get a membership to socialize with us! 

  • Social Membership. We welcome everyone to join us in our club social activities (e.g. bowling, pub visits, BBQs, etc.)

    • The CV Tri Club Social membership allows you to join in our social events and to support the club (thank you!).

    • With the social membership you do not need Tri BC membership.

    • This annual membership cost is $20 straight up (no added Tri BC or Tri Canada memberships and fees required).

  • Train and Race Membership 

    • Receive all the benefits of a Social Membership.

    • ​In order to participate in our club-organized workouts (e.g. swims, outdoor group rides, bricks, etc.*), members will require the CV Tri Club $20 Train and Race membership

    • This type of membership also requires getting a Tri BC and Tri Canada membership at the same time. The Tri BC membership provides the mandatory insurance to participate in our organized workouts and to participate in triathlons in BC. See the Tri BC membership benefits at tribc.org/membership, and Tri Canada membership benefits at triathloncanada.com/membership.

    • But, note that a membership in the CV Tri Club also entitles you to a $5 discount on your Tri BC membership when you indicate your CV Tri Club affiliation as you register for the standard Tri BC membership.

Membership Registration Steps

Here are the steps to register for either membership. Don't be intimidated! It looks long because every potential quirky situation is laid out so you can find your way. There are only 7 steps to club membership nirvana!

  1. Go to https://ccnbikes.com/#!/events/comox-valley-triathlon-club-membership-2023 Click the “Register Now” button to start the process up.

  2. You will need a CCN online registration account to get the CV Tri Club membership. Depending on your situation, you may already have a CCN account to use, or you may have to create a new one. Pick your situation from below and follow the guidance.

    • If you had a 2022 CV Tri Club membership, or

      • If you had a non-social (aka athlete) club membership before 2021 or earlier

      • Then you will already have a CCN account (because you should have needed one to also get the required Tri BC/Tri Canada memberships).

        • In this case (i.e., you already have a CCN account) you should be able to login with the same account/password you used for those previous memberships, and use that same CCN account for getting the CV Tri Club membership. In other words, login to that CCN account instead of creating a new one.

    • Otherwise, if you registered for triathlon events or possibly memberships for other organizations (e.g., cycling)

      • You might already have a CCN account . If so, you can reuse that same CCN account and password to login for the CV Tri Club membership purchase.

    • Otherwise, If none of the above applies to you

      • You will likely need to create a new CCN account. Create a CCN account at this step through the above link.

  3. Choose whether you want to get a “Social” or “Train and Race” membership.

  • The two membership types are the same cost. The difference is that the train/race membership provides club activity insurance coverage, Tri BC race entry fees coverage for the year, and some other benefits that differ between the two. The difference in benefits are explained further during registration.

  • However, if your take part in club training activities, you will need to choose to be a "Train and Race" member (for club insurance through Tri BC). As a consequence:

    • Your membership registration will automatically take you down the path of also getting and paying the fees for a current year's Tri BC and a Tri Canada membership. 

    • Since the registration process will recognize that you are also getting a CV Tri Club membership, a Tri BC $5 discount for sanctioned/affiliated club member will be automatically applied. You will see that come up on your order summary.

    • Note that there will be a section during registration where you are requested to provide some background information about yourself. This is optional and, if you would like to provide this information, indicate with the appropriate, selected option for each question.

4. Enter all the requested information for the individual being registered.

5. In CCN you can register multiple people through one login account. So, if you normally also handle the registration of a spouse, kids, or any others for the club, you can do so and repeat the step 3 above for each.

6. Once you have provided all the registration details, you will have several waiver agreements to approve: one for Tri Canada, one for Tri BC, and one for the CV Tri Club.

  • If you have a second (or more) person that you have registered at the same time, and they aren’t there with you to approve the waivers, you will need to indicate that you are not that person. Doing this will cause those people to be emailed with a request to approve the waivers separately - which they need to do to finalize their memberships. Check with them that they received and dealt with that.

7. When you reach the Order Summary page at the end, there are a couple of things to consider.​

  • If you are getting a CV Tri Club train/race membership, you will see line items for the Tri BC annual membership as well - but with a $5 discount applied because of our club affiliation with Tri BC.

  • You will see an add-on purchase option of "Refundable Registration" with a choice of "View options" or "No thanks". Be aware this is a value-added option from CCN (the online registration vendor) and it is your personal choice whether you want to pursue this. More information about this option can be read by choosing the "View options" button, or read the details at https://support.interpodia.com/knowledge/pso/club/event-what-is-refund-protect.
