What is the process for club affiliation?
Online Club Affiliation opens in October 2022.
After you have completed and submitted the form, we will check it over. We will then either approve your club affiliation or contact you to discuss what else we need before we can approve it.
Once your club has been approved, you will be emailed with a link to pay your Club Affiliation fee. Your affiliation for 2023 is only complete when we have received payment from you.
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 for 2023 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 for 2023?
2022 affiliation will expire on 31 December 2022, so you will need to have completed the process before then to ensure that you do not have a gap between the two.
However, the affiliation process remains open throughout the year to support new clubs or those that might have missed the deadline.
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. This allows us to ensure that they are sanctioned to coach/lead sessions and that your club is as safe as it can be.

Do we have to fill out a new Club Form or do we update the present club form?

There are a few additional details that need to be completed hence to ensure we have everything we need to support you.

Have the prices increased from 2022?
