Hello OxfordTri Family!
I hope that this finds you well. There’s lots in this email so I’m also going to keep this brief. I’m also aware that I’ve sent a lengthy email out with regards to an adjustment in our membership fees so you’ve had a lot of me today. What I would say is if you have not already read that email then please do take some time to do so, there’s a summary and links to the email in this newsletter below. I have been incredibly grateful for the committees help and understanding throughout this process and I hope you will see why in my email.
As always if there’s ever anything you would like to bring to my attention please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Membership Fee Adjustment
This afternoon OxfordTri members received an email from Craig our Chair highlighting the committees decision to adjust our Membership Fees under our current membership structure. This means that as of the 1st of January 2024 out membership price will change from £120 to £150.
The committee have taken this decision as part of a wider financial strategy to navigate the club towards financial stability while pursuing our vision to INCLUDE, EMPOWER, TOGETHER as set out in our 2025 Strategy.
The email in full can be found below along with our 2024 Budget.
If any member has concerns or questions around this membership adjustment having read both the Membership Fee Statement and our 2024 Budget then please don’t hesitate to reach out to Craig via his email email@example.com

We all know that feeling of slightly over indulging in the over the Christmas period and as a result we are delighted to share that our Lead Coach Sean will be running a slightly later than normal online strength and conditioning session to help combat the impact of those mince pies.
We have also decided that the session will be open to non-members so as a result do think about if there is anyone you would like to invite along and like and share any stuff that we share on social media if possible.

This event will also be open to non-members so feel free to bring along friends and family. Under 18s are more than welcome to join us as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
