FAQs

Clubs

Can a commercial club also be an event organiser and receive the same cover through the club’s insurance policy?

A commercial club can put on events to members of the public so long as that is not their primary function. They must also ensure their events are permitted with British Triathlon and those taking part sign up to Race Pass if they do not hold British Triathlon Membership. Further details on organising an event can be found on the Event Organisers Website. This is continually being reviewed by British Triathlon and all clubs will be notified of any changes.

We are a new club, what do we need to do?

Visit our club affiliation page and watch our animation to help you to gather all of the required information. When you have everything ready, complete the affiliation form located here.

Please contact your local Regional Manager for support at any stage of the process.

How many events can a club deliver under the club’s insurance policy?

There is no current set number however if a club was putting on several events a year it might be deemed that you are a commercial organiser and you will be asked to separate the club from the events. This will be continually reviewed by British Triathlon.

We are a school/ college/ university, which category do we fall into?

If you are a university, college or school you will be deemed as a closed club. Therefore, you will pay the same fees as a closed club depending on the number of declared members taking part in triathlon. In most case this will be the lowest level.

How many times can someone attend taster sessions before they need to become a club member?

This is limited to 3 sessions and must be adhered to otherwise the club will find it is not insured to run the sessions.

How do we access the Club Management area of the British Triathlon website?

Once a club has completed the online affiliation application form, been approved and made payment a club is then able to access the club management area of the British Triathlon website.

To do this you will need to:

  1. Login here 
  2. Your username is your club affiliation number which can be found on your payment confirmation
  3. You will have created your password within your initial club affiliation form
  4. You can request a password reset on the login page, this will be sent to the club's primary contact

If you have any issues, please email clubs@britishtriathlon.org 

Does a closed club need to have a committee and go through TriMark Bronze accreditation?

It is not mandatory for a closed club to have a committee or to go through TriMark accreditation.  However, if a club wishes, they can create a committee as this would allow them to apply for TriMark Accreditation.  For further information please speak to your Regional Manager.

We made a mistake on the form, can we update it on the club management area?

Once you have submitted your affiliation form to us, you will not be able to make any changes to it on the club management area. If you realise you have made an error, please email clubs@britishtriathlon.org or call 01509 226199 and we will be able to help you with it.

What is the role of the Primary Contact?

A primary contact is the club member with whom we communicate with, this is usually by email. The primary contact will receive payment information and British Triathlon club information updates. The primary contact needs to be a Home Nation member. It is the primary contact’s details that are publicly displayed within the club finder information page.
