Membership Sign Up Form

Membership Card & Gift

We will be handing out our new Jozo Weider Membership cards and Gift to each family that purchases a Membership for their racer through TeamSnap, in January. The Membership card also comes with 2 key tags that can be attached to your IKON pass. The Membership card will be required by our families to attend social events including the Season Kick-Off Party, Family Day Party and End of Year Banquet (ticket purchase required), as well as to purchase Jozo branded clothing and gear. If you purchase your membership before Jan 19th, you will also be included in our Earlybird Draw where you could win prizes such as free race programs.

Awards Banquet

Our End of Year Awards Banquet for our 2-day racers will be on the evening of March 7th in the Village Conference Centre. It is a fantastic event to celebrate the end of the season with trophies and medals given out to our Jozo athletes. The event includes Hors D’Oeuvres, Dinner, Dessert, Awards Ceremony & Dancing, with a cash bar. We have tried to keep our costs down in order for the event to break even, with our Membership costs subsidizing some of our costs, but this year we had to increase our costs slightly due to the meal costs increasing.

Tickets are on sale now. Remember that a Membership is required to purchase and attend the Awards Banquet, so make sure you purchase your Membership for your racers first.

No physical tickets will be issued as we will have a registration desk at the Banquet with the names of everyone who purchased tickets. When purchasing your tickets, PLEASE ensure you include the names of EACH attendee, if they are a Racer, and/or Age Group and any dietary restrictions or allergies. 

PLEASE NOTE: We have a new process for purchasing your Banquet Tickets via TeamSnap. If you have an existing account, you will be asked to sign in using your existing login and password. If you don't have an existing TeamSnap account, you will be asked to create one. Please click on the button below:
