Do we have to sanction our club events with USA Triathlon?
It is not required to sanction your club events with USAT so long as your club events are not races.  If your club event is a race, even if it is only club members the risk can be the same as the risk at non club sponsored events. By sanctioning your event, the event will be covered under the sanctioned event insurance policy. For information on sanctioning, please email Sanctioning.

What is the difference between an official club and a sanctioned club?
There is no such thing as a "sanctioned" club. All clubs that register with USA Triathlon may use the terminology "official". The only time the word "sanctioned" may be used is by an event that has a sanction application on file with the national office.
