TriMark Club Bronze accreditation 

Newcastle Triathlon Club holds the TriMark Bronze club accreditation from Triathlon England. A TriMark club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all genders and ages who 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.

The Bronze shows that the club has confirmed it is a community club with a management committee, that it has a constitution, an active activity programme and, where required, a welfare officer. Additionally, the club coaches must be operating within their qualification remit and the club should have an open and inclusive membership offer.

SH2OUT Accreditation

NTC has the SH2OUT safety accreditation, following an assessment in 2019 of its open water swimming. It ensures operators are following best practice guidelines, implementing robust safety procedures and standards of competence. Newcastle Tri Club is accredited for providing a safe and enjoyable open water swimming experience with the SH2OUT accreditation.

SH2OUT accreditation is a joint venture between British Triathlon and the Royal Life Saving Society UK.

Volunteers provide safety cover on the lake in kayaks and a motorised safety boat is on hand should there be an incident.
