As coaches, we are responsible for the welfare of our members and protecting them from poor practice, abuse and bullying. We are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for all our young triathletes. Our lead coaches hold Enhanced DBS certificates, and have undertaken Child Protection in sports training courses. 

Every member of the Club is entitled to participate in a safe and fun environment and to be given the chance to experience the feelings of enjoyment, challenge and achievement that are inherent in sport. Whilst you will work hard in training our sessions should allow you to have fun with your friends while learning new skills, staying healthy and achieving your goals. 

If you ever feel uncomfortable and want to talk to someone there are people who can help, both within and outside the club:
