Age Group Team Manager Volunteer

Do you have the time and commitment to be a Great Britain Age Group Team Manager Volunteer?

The British Triathlon Federation is the National Governing Body for Triathlon, Duathlon and Aquathlon in Great Britain, responsible for raising the profile and delivering medal-winning performances and helping everyone discover, enjoy and achieve in triathlon.

Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon are the three Home Nations of the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) and are responsible for all aspects of triathlon in their respective countries and contribute to the work of BTF.

British Triathlon are looking for up to 3 Age Group Team Manager Volunteers to lead and manage a World or European Championship event.

You will be required to manage the qualification process for Age Group athletes and supporting the team in all aspects of international Championships.
