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:
- Login here
- Your username is your club affiliation number which can be found on your payment confirmation
- You will have created your password within your initial club affiliation form
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Does a closed club need to have a committee and go through TriMark Bronze accreditation?
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 email@example.com 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.
What training does the Club Welfare Officer have to complete?
The Club Welfare Officer must complete the following training requirements and renew each training course every three years;
Complete the UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children training course*
Complete the designated Club Welfare Officer Safeguarding Training as stipulated by British Triathlon
*As a prerequisite to attending Club Welfare Officer Safeguarding Training, attendees need to have completed the UK Coaching Safeguarding and Protecting Children training course previously.
Can community clubs pay coaches or does that make them a commercial club?
There is no problem with a community club paying coaches what is considered the going commercial rate. This is considered to be:
- Level 1 - £10 to £15/hour
- Level 2 - £15 to £25/hour
- Level 3 - £25 to £35/hour.
Clubs and coaches should remember that this should be on a casual basis and both parties should seek guidance on their position with regards to the relationship between employer/employee regarding HMRC.
What address should we provide for the club?
You will need to provide the postcode of where your club is based. This should be the main headquarters of where your club meets or the most frequent location for club activities.
This information is displayed on our club finder as your club location, so please do not provide a personal address.
We are not based in one of the Home Nations, can we still affiliate to British Triathlon?
No, clubs that are not part of the United Kingdom cannot affiliate to British Triathlon as they will not be eligible for insurance under our policy.
