Triathlon Alberta is a non-profit organization that is the recognized governing body for the sport of triathlon in Alberta. We undertake a number of duties and responsibilities on behalf of athletes, coaches, clubs, race directors and officials to ensure the growth and development of the sport in the province in a fun and safe way. Every dollar of revenue we receive gets re-invested back into the sport in one way or another.
Some of the functions we perform on behalf of all athletes, members and non-members, include:
Promote the growth and development of the sport
Implement and interpret the rules of play
Thoroughly review and sanction races, ensuring race directors follow proper safety procedures and race designs are fair and efficient for all participants
Issue liability insurance for the protection of all athletes, race directors, employees, volunteers and officials at all sanctioned races plus sport accident insurance for all members at those events, including travel to and from those sanctioned events
Locate, train, certify and supply first class officials to sanctioned races that not only ensure the race is fair to all participants, regardless of ability, but also to ensure race directors adhere to their obligations to safety
Oversee NCCP coaching training and certification process for the province, as well as, develop continuing education opportunities
2019 Membership Fees
Triathlon Alberta's Provincial Program athletes still require an annual membership.
PLEASE NOTE: The Provincial membership fee DOES NOT include the mandatory affiliation fee to Triathlon Canada. In the past, this sum has been hidden within the annual Triathlon Alberta fee. In order to increase transparency and create a more sustainable financial platform, the Triathlon Alberta Board approved this item as a separate fee. We still are required to collect it on behalf of the National Federation, but it is a separate line item.
