All Club operated events will need to be endorsed or sanctioned. This is completed during the Club affiliation process.
Club Event Endorsement is Health & Safety documents and event information for Tri NZ to promote the event. Documents are not additional but are what the club provide already to local councils during their event permitting process. Here is a checklist.
TRI NZ ENDORSEMENT FEES
Event with over 150 participants $250+GST for the first year of endorsement. Subsequent year endorsement fee of $100+GST, provided the event has minimal changes.
Events with under 150 participants will not be charged an endorsement fee.
NB: Tri NZ are open to conversations with events which are close to the 150 thresholds and want to ensure a practical approach is taken.
Clarity on ‘Event’
• Event= this does not include training sessions. These are events that have an entry fee, are timed, and are advertised as events through the club
• Event Series= an event that recurs at the same location, with the same health and safety and permitting plans.
In the instance of a club running an event series as defined above, the endorsement would be of the entire series at the singular endorsement cost structure (per season).
If your club runs an ‘event series’ that occurs on different courses and/or across different disciplines, each event in the series will need to be endorsed separately.
Club Event One Day Membership
All Tri NZ Sanctioned and Endorsed events are required to have One Day Memberships. However we recognise that this requirement has come into effect very close to the start of the 2018/19 season and therefore clubs are NOT required to implement this for the 2018/2019 season. This requirement will come into effect from November 1st 2019 for the 2019/2020 season. Further details and information will be provided as we near that time.
