Any activity a sanctioned club runs is not automatically sanctioned.
In order to run a sanctioned event, the organizer must be itself sanctioned, as in a sanctioned club or sanctioned race organizer. The organizer may then apply to sanction an event, such as a club workout, clinic, camp, or race.
Until they’re approved such events are not sanctioned and therefore not insured.
Sanctioning an event involves informing Triathlon Ontario of the event and supplying any required information – usually related to safety – and agreeing to run the event with Triathlon Ontario’s standards.
Only sanctioned clubs can sanction and insure their events, so first make sure your club is sanctioned for the upcoming calendar year.
To sanction an event or series of events, ensure the event meets Triathlon Ontario requirements, then use one of the online forms to apply. Links are located on the Club Administrators’ page.
Unsanctioned events are not insured – neither the club nor the coaches will be protected from liability.
