Triathlon South Australia is the South Australian affiliate association of Triathlon Australia (TA), the national administrative body responsible for the sport of Triathlon in Australia as recognised by the International Triathlon Union (ITU), the Australian Government through the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), the Australian Commonwealth Games Association (ACGA) and the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC).
It is governed by a Board of up to 9 Elected Directors (ED) and up to 2 Appointed Directors (AP) with the strategic development and growth of the sport within South Australia. It is supported by a small administrative team of dedicated staff. The Board is inviting applications to fill five (5) positions declared vacant at our upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM). Four (4) positions are for 2 years, and one (1) position is for a period of one year to coincide with our rotation cycle.
The 2018/19 Season is an exciting one, as we continue our organisational transfer to an organisation actively engaged in programming, developmental services and supporting our stakeholders, clubs and members to engage in the sport of Triathlon. The Board of Triathlon SA is committed to the State Government’s 40/40/20 policy initiative and to implement the Governance Principles for South Australian State Sports Organisations for Triathlon in South Australia.
