2015 Membership Registration and Renewal

The new membership form for 2015 will push online at

for all members to renew on 1st Jan. The annual membership fee will adjust to $350 for adult and $250 for junior members whereas national and regional squad triathletes will be discounted. 

Same as last year, member of Sonic are encourage to also join the annual membership of Hong Kong Triathlon Association (TriHK) for the benefit of great discount in race entry organized by TriHK.

TriHK will email to individual member regarding the online renewal form, it would be similar process on Active Online platform as Sonic. Just don't forget to select Sonic Sports Association as your affiliated club.

Goal Setting

Goal Setting is important for life and also in our sports. Getting goals for the coming season will put us on track for motivation, achievement and build confident. In our sports, without a specific race goal you may lose focus at training, or you may not willing to push yourself to the next threshold at the hard sets. Set your goals be Specific, Measurable, Actionable,  Realistic and Time-based.

I am not the expert in sports psychology but I'd recommend you to Google Triathlon goal setting.

In Sonic, within the group of members we train together every week, we have set our goal for the first half of 2015. Team of 16 will race Challenge-Taiwan half-ironman distance or Short OD distance.

Then how?

We'd recommend you to prepare yourself to training in the gloomy and wet weather. TriHK will also organize Duathlon series in February and March, that would be a good lead to our target race.

New Year New Fee

In 2015, we will slightly adjust the training fee payment scheme after 6 years of freezing.

The 6 months prepayment of training will be replaced by new 'Quarter Pass' at $2000 for three months (Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun....etc);
