How to register with WPTA/TSA for the 2015/2016 Season

Registration is for the period 1 September 2015 till 31 August 2016

Steps:
• You will be paying both the club fee and the WPTA fee directly to the Cape Multisportclub.
• Your profile must be registered with MOBII, if not your WPTA /TSA registration cannot be completed and you cannot be transferred to TSA. Transfer of athletes to TSA will be on a weekly basis.
• Log onto: http://profile.mobii.com/s/wpta. Please make sure you click on the WPTA affiliation and complete the “Licence” section as well.
• If you have already registered your profile on Mobii you will need to go tohttp://profile.mobii.comand ensure that all your details are upgraded.

Once the club has verified your status as a paid up club member for their new season, the club will release you on Mobii and WPTA will issue you a number once payment is received from the club. You will receive notice of your WPTA number from TSA via your email address. This is done on a weekly basis.

Registration cards from MOBII
These cards are only to say that you have registered your profile with MOBII. This is not a WPTA registration card and is therefore are not valid at races as proof of membership. Updated lists will be provided by WPTA to the race organisers on the day.

Last minute registrations
Please note that we (your club) will be asked to send WPTA confirmations of the registration on a weekly basis. We therefore suggest that you register with WPTA at least 7 days prior to a race. If your registration is not received on time, you will need to take out a temporary licence for that race.

Temp Licence
No Current 2014/2015 TSA/WPTA number or club SMS = buying a temporary licence

Fees

Temporary Licence Fees 2015/2016 season
Sprint event: R 30.00
Olympic distance or long distance EG Ironman: R 100.00
Teams: R50.00 per team

Please note that at events (while racking your bike into the transition area) WPTA officials will check if you have your WPTA sticker indicating that you have either a WPTA member or a temp licence. This licence must be purchased before the event at the WPTA table at registration. No sticker, no participation.

TSA/WPTA Registration options for the 2015/2016 season are as follow:-
• Age groupers(20 and older in 2015) full TSA/WPTA licence R 450.00

Difference between a full and recreational licence.
