The way we manage our membership is changing, and the club will be moving to a cashless system. This means that there will be no cash transferring hands at training sessions. As a result of this, we are changing to a different membership system, which we believe will make it much more convenient for members.
How it works
We will be using Nifty Memberships to manage our memberships. All members must sign up online, and create an e-wallet. It is your responsibility to keep your e-wallet topped up, at a sufficient level to attend the sessions you wish to attend – think of this as a pay as you go mobile phone contract, that needs topping up. You can do this when you need to, or you can automate it to top up with a set amount (i.e. £10) every time your balance drops below a set threshold (i.e £10).
When you turn up to a club session, you will be required to show your membership card (either printed or on your smartphone) and input your name or membership number into a club iPad, and the session fee will be taken from your account.
Multiple people can be connected to a single e-wallet, so if you come training with your significant other, or bring the kids, you only need to top up 1 e-wallet, but must still have separate membership accounts.
You will not be allowed access to a club session if:
• You turn up without an e-wallet (you are not a member)
• You cannot produce your membership card upon request (printed or on smartphone)
• You don’t have sufficient credit in your e-wallet
• You attempt to pay cash
Danny will be at Middleton on Thursday 25th January from 8:00-8:45 to answer any questions or help people having trouble signing up. The system is easy to use, so please attempt this before asking for help.
The new system will go live on 1st February 2018. Until then, we will only accept cash payments, but you must be ready to change to the new system for the Thursday swim on 1st February (after the AGM).
Annual Membership Costs
Club pay as you go (PAYG) membership will remain at the same level for 2018 (£20 for adults, £5 for juniors/students/social members).
As well as this, an All-Inclusive option is available for adults (£250) and juniors (£60) – this means all club run (excluding Kingsway track sessions) sessions are included in the membership.
Due to increasing facility hire costs, from 1st Feb 2018, RTC club sessions will increase by 50p per session to £3.50 for adults, and £1.50 for juniors. This applies to swimming sessions, and cycle sessions. Run track sessions at Kingsway will continue to be the same price (£2), as set by Link4Life.
The club are confident of the quality of the sessions that it delivers, including the quality of the facilities and coaches and believe our membership and session costs provide excellent value for money. For insurance and safety purposes, Rochdale Tri Club will no longer offer non-members the opportunity to train with the club. Anybody taking part in a club session must be a paid up club member to benefit from the session.
