Club Affiliation

Clubs are at the heart of triathlon in Scotland and well-organised, pro-active clubs provide a fantastic platform for members to make the most of the sport. To ensure that our clubs are maintaining the required standards for their members we ask our clubs to affiliate to us before we recognise and support them. This page provides information on the benefits of affiliation and the process required.

Affiliation Process and Requirements

The affiliation process is not long or complicated but does require the putting in place of some basic structures, documents and policies. Full details of the requirements can be found in the Affiliation Requirements docment in the downloads section below, here you will also find templates for each of the required documents and policies.
