What is the STAR Club Scheme?
STAR Mark is a club development tool for Senior Triathlon clubs. It has been developed in consultation with clubs around the country and is based on the very successful Clubmark scheme.
To gain accreditation, clubs must fulfil criteria in the areas of:
Coaching and Competition
Sports Equity and Ethics

Achievement of the above criteria will indicate that the club has reached a minimum level of standards and will be recognised by triathletes, sports professionals and the community as a quality Triathlon Club.
Every three years this critera is re-assessed to make sure the club are still running to the same standard and can continue usuing the mark of quality logo.
