What Team West Coast (TWC) is all About
Our philosophy is realized by:

  • Promoting participation by people of all ages and levels of ability.
  • Providing an environment to support individual training activities by organizing scheduled training events that members can incorporate into their own training plans.
  • Providing opportunities for members of similar abilities to train together and to obtain training tips and information on where and how to obtain individual coaching, if desired.
  • Participating in road races, relays and triathlons as a team and organizing car pools for out of town races.
  • Getting together for social functions throughout the year to promote team spirit and friendship.
  • Organizing and hosting major community events including races and triathlons.
  • TWC is always happy to welcome triathletes, duathletes and runners of all abilities as new members. A Membership Application is enclosed in this website or come to one of our Training Runs or Events.

What Do We Do?

  • Mostly we train. Sometimes we train hard, mostly we train easy.
  • Very organized and coached swim workouts are held Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Friday evenings all year.
  • Saturday morning bike rides all year. The rides are more or less organized if your idea of organized is trying to get a consensus on which direction we're going to ride.
  • Run sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and on Sunday mornings all year. Please see our Training Schedule for exact times and locations.
  • We also compete. Individually we compete at swim meets, running races and triathlons. We compete with ourselves to get personal best times and we compete with other people anytime, anyplace. As a team, we compete in relay races and for overall points in race series.
  • To support the development of young athletes we organized the annual Victoria Youth Triathlon.
  • As a part of the Vancouver Island running community we organize the Bazan Bay 8K running race.
  • We also organize club social events, including barbecues, social runs, pot luck dinners and parties.
  • Our newsletter is the best around. In it we publish records of our triumphs and occasionally "flattering" pictures of ourselves. Club members contribute articles on various events and/or topics of interest.

Why join TWC?

  • To connect with exercise partners or other like-minded people and get more out of your workouts. A workout partner, or group, is the best motivator for maintaining a fitness program or for maintaining an involvement in sport as part of your lifestyle. It's much easier to get motivated if there are other people doing the same workout on a regular basis.
  • A major reason to join TWC, is that no matter how slow or fast you are at a training session or race, there's usually a team mate around.
  • Come as our guest to any of the training sessions. Email a member of the executive for specifics as to our Training Schedule. We hope that our schedule suits your schedule. We welcome you to TWC.
