Triathlon England awards 2019: club of the year 

We were extremely proud to be named Club of the Year 2019 at Triathlon England’s annual general meeting and awards ceremony in November 2019.

The judges highlighted our inclusive and supportive ethos, development of athletes from junior to elite level, extensive and varied training schedule and development of its volunteer and coaching base.

TriMark Club Bronze accreditation logo

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.
