TriMark Club Accreditation
A TriMark Club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all genders and ages, that want to be involved in the sport of triathlon. A TriMark Club has reached a level of accreditation that helps parents and carers identify the right club for their young people.
Triathlon England have worked with Sport England, under Club Matters, to develop the TriMark accrediation scheme for triathlon clubs The scheme is for all community clubs, junior and senior, that have an established committee, a recognised constitution and has a membership offer open to everyone no matter what their background. Clubs with TriMark will have appropriate safeguarding measures in place; including a qualified welfare officer and DBS checked coaches and officials that are in regular contact with those under 18 in the club.
A TriMark Club will have achieved a number of set criteria in the following areas:
- Club Management
- Duty of Care and Welfare
- Activity Programme
- Knowing Your Club and Community
Since the launch of TriMark Club accrediation on 1 April 2017, 88 clubs nationally have been awarded TriMark Club Bronze and there are another 96 clubs with applications in progress.
From 2019 all clubs with Juniors will need to have TriMark Club Bronze in order to affiliate with British Triathlon.
