Code of Conduct

By joining Racestrong Triathlon Club, members agree to the abide by the following code of conduct:

General Conduct
All members are expected to behave in a respectful and tolerant way towards all other Club members, regardless of age, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation.

Racestrong Triathlon Club reserves the right to cancel, without refund, the membership of anyone found to be behaving in an abusive manner towards any coach, club volunteers or other member.

Team Training
Members should arrive at training sessions on time, properly prepared and are expected to act in a way that is consistent with the professional image of the club.

All sessions shall be paid for prior to training either online or via cash on the day.

To gain entry to training sessions, all members must show their membership card.

Health and Safety
Members participate in all group training sessions, races and other events at their own risk.

To comply with health and safety requirements, all members must sign in at the beginning of every training session. Failure to comply may result in the session being stopped by the coach until the situation has been rectified.

Any member who has a medical condition should consult their doctor before participating in training or racing.

It is the responsibility of the member, not the coach, to ensure that they are fit to participate in training sessions.

It is the responsibility of the member to inform the coach if they have a medical condition that may affect their participation in a session, or the medical treatment they can/should receive in the event of emergency (This information will not be retained by the Club and so should be given to the coach at the beginning of EVERY session).

Members are responsible for ensuring that any equipment they bring for use during training sessions (eg bike, turbo trainer) is in good working order and not in a condition in which it would be likely to cause injury to themselves or other members.

Members under the age of 18 may participate in training sessions only once the Club has received a signed parental consent form.

If a coach considers that a member’s participation in a session is a health and safety risk, then the coach reserves the right not to allow the member to participate in the session.

Racestrong reserve the right to cancel, without refund, the membership of any member found to be in continuous breach of any of the health and safety requirements of these Terms and Conditions of Training.

Personal Belongings

Members’ property remains their responsibility during training sessions and the Club will take no responsibility for any loss or damage suffered.

Membership Cards

Membership cards remain the property of Racestrong and must be returned upon request. If lost or stolen, membership cards can be replaced at a cost of £10.
