Professional Licence Information


All Australian athletes wishing to compete in Triathlon, Duathlon, Aquathlon, Cross-Triathlon or any other Multi-Sport event that is sanctioned by Triathlon Australia with an overall prize purse (male & female combined) of $10k AUD (exclusive of GST) or above, will require to hold a TA Professional Elite Licence. The TA Professional Elite licence is required to be shown at event registration prior to the race to be eligible to compete as a Professional Elite Athlete at that event.

To be eligible for a TA Professional Elite licence athletes must be turning 18 in the year of application. "Special Circumstances" will be evaluated by the High Performance Team.

There are three (3) categories of Professional Elite Licence in 2017-2018:

  1. Professional Elite Licence -  Open
  2. Professional Elite Licence -  Long Course & Multisport (Non-Drafting)
  3. Professional Elite Licence -  U23 Development - Interim (Drafting)

If during the course of the year an athlete "upgrades" their licence, athletes will only pay the differential between their original Triathlon Australia membership and the new professional membership type.
