Club Affiliation 2021
Changes to the Triathlon England Club Affiliation from 2020
*British Triathlon Club Affiliation has remained the same for 10 years, and in 2020 we rolled out a refresh of affiliation and the price associated with it as we ensure that the service we provide meets your club’s needs and affiliation is more appropriate for the current club landscape.
In 2020, previous club categories of informal, sponsored, internet and community were replaced with the following categories: Community, Commercial, Closed and Single Discipline.
From 1 January 2020 the annual cost of Club Affiliation varies depending on the number of members your club has. This pricing refresh is being introduced following a review process of the current Club Affiliation prices which have remained unchanged for the past 10 years. During this period, insurance costs have risen and new benefits to affiliation have been introduced with no change in the price.
|Club Type||NO. of members||Annual Cost|
|Community, Closed, Single Discipline||<150||£155|
|Community, Closed, Single Discipline||150-299||£255|
|Community, Closed, Single Discipline||>300||£305|
