A SAFE ENVIRONMENT
Welfare and Wellbeing
Ful On Tri is committed to the welfare and wellbeing of its members and aims to be a welcoming, inclusive club which makes triathlon accessible to all, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, ability, sex and sexual orientation, or religion.
All of our coaches are qualified under Triathlon England or a corresponding sporting body (e.g. British Cycling or Amateur Swimming Association) and our training sessions are open to all abilities.
Beginners are welcome at all club sessions and our club coaches are here to help answer any questions or concerns you might have. You can also reach out to our Coaching Coordinator with questions about specific sessions. For beginner cyclists, look out for our Introduction to Group Riding sessions, which are a great way to get to know other club members, and to learn the basics of group riding.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Ful On Tri is committed to promoting equality, diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities within the club and to promoting a sport free from discrimination, harassment and prejudice. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy is outlined in our framework and driven by the vision “great experiences through swim, bike and run for all”. More information is included in the links below, but you can also contact the club EDI officer with any questions, ideas, or feedback.
Inclusion survey – one of our sub-committee’s first priorities was to find out who we are! We had a great response to our first inclusion survey, with over 100 club members completing it.

If you have any concerns
The club is run entirely by volunteers, so all members are strongly encouraged to take a proactive role in respect of any welfare-related matters as well as providing support and encouragement to other club members in their training and racing. You can contact the Club Welfare Officer, Chairman, or Coaching Coordinator in confidence with any concerns. Welfare-related issues include bullying, racism, sexism, discrimination of any kind, and inappropriate sexual attention.
Thoughts or ideas?
We want to hear from you! Please email our EDI Officer if you have any feedback or suggestions for us to make the club more inclusive.
