Piranha Survey 2017


Season 2016/17 is now over and our triathlon club had its most successful season ever with three titles from the Tri NSW Club Champs and retention of the Central West Interclub. There were also many fine individual performances. For the season just finished, your club hosted 6 triathlons, attended 4 Interclubs, offered 3 open water swims, heavily involved in a Junior triathlon weekend, and packaged a weekend of events and fab shirt with the Tri NSW Club Champs weekend.

However the club will not rest on these achievements. You should know we had a drop in members and drop in participants at our races this 16/17 season. This survey is to understand what our members want so we line up well for season 17/18. We won’t please everyone, but we seek to please as many as we can!

Please take a moment to think as you complete the survey, it should only take 5 minutes. The survey is open until 31 May 2017 and a summary will be shared soon after. Thank you in advance!
