What is the role of the Welfare Officer?
Everyone who participates in Triathlon is entitled to participate in a safe and fun environment and to be given the chance to experience the feelings of enjoyment, challenge and achievement that are inherent to the sport.
British Triathlon is firmly committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all young people to take part in Triathlon. It accepts its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all young people and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.
The main purpose of the Club Welfare Officer is to implement good practice, safeguarding and child protection policies within the club and act as the first point of contact for individuals who have queries or concerns. The British Triathlon safeguarding policy and procedures along with additional help advice and guidance can be found on our website under safeguarding.
It is a mandatory requirement that clubs with junior members under the age of 18 or adults at risk that affiliate to British Triathlon must have a Welfare Officer appointed.
Why do you need to have a club constitution?
Community based clubs need to have a constitution so that the club operates fairly for both its members and the club. We actively encourage clubs to have a constitution and have provided a sample template to use which can be found here.
What determines the location of a club?
You will need to provide the postcode of where your club is based ie: the main headquarters of where your club meets or the most frequent location. You will need to affiliate to the home nation that your club is based.
