BTF Bronze Accreditation

We have just received an email from the BTF which included the following message:

CONGRATULATIONS! 7Oaks Triathlon Club has achieved TriMark Club Bronze accreditation. Thanks for all your hard work. This is a fantastic achievement and one that will help to ensure that 7Oaks Triathlon Club has a successful and long future.

What does this mean?  Essentially a recognition that our club has reached certain standards in stewardship and operation and can continue to be affilitated to the BTF. Specifically:

TriMark Club Bronze Accreditation – The Bronze level is the entry point into the Triathlon England accreditation scheme. This level outlines 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.
