What is the process for club affiliation?
Online club affiliation opens each year in October.
You will need to complete an online form, once submitted we will either approve your club affiliation or contact you to discuss what else we need before we can approve it.
If you are an existing club you can log into your Club Management area on the British Triathlon website and update the online form. There are a few additional details that need to be completed to ensure we have everything we need to support you.
If you are a new club you will fill out a new form located here.
Once your club has been approved, you will be emailed with a link to pay your club affiliation fee. Your affiliation is only complete when we have received payment from you.
Further information on club affiliation can be found here.
Do we need to do TriMark Bronze accreditation before we affiliate?
TriMark Club Bronze is compulsory for all Community clubs with juniors (U18). If you are a Community club with junior athletes and you have not completed TriMark Bronze you will not be allowed to affiliate to British Triathlon until it has been completed. Please contact your Regional Manager for support and for further information look at the British Triathlon Accreditation pages.
When does affiliation close each year?
Club affiliation will expire on 31 December each year, so you will need to have completed the process before then to ensure that you do not have a gap between the two. There may be a delay in conpleting the affiliation process due to Christmas office closures.
However, the affiliation process remains open throughout the year to support new clubs or those that might have missed the deadline.
If you have any queries, please email email@example.com
Who can help us to get everything sorted and complete our form?
The club affiliation page on our website provides some helpful information, including an animated film that outlines everything you will be asked to provide on the form. Please have a look here - https://www.britishtriathlon.org/clubs/club-affiliation
What information do we need to provide in order to affiliate our club? Why do you need all of this?
The club affiliation form asks you to provide some basic information about your club – name, type of club, number of members, location and session details. We use this to promote your club on our club finder and to check on the changes in club membership over time.
We also ask you to provide details of key members of your club – Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and, where required, a Club Welfare Officer. These details allow us to communicate appropriate information to these people during the year.
Finally, we ask for details of your coaches and activators/leader. This allows us to ensure that they are sanctioned to coach/lead sessions and that your club is as safe as it can be.
