Due the the popularity of the club currently there is a waiting list for most age groups. You can see details of this here.

To be added to the club waiting list, by completing the enquiry form. You weil recieve an email confirming you have completed the form and this will be your confirmation that you have been added to the waiting list. 


We cannot advise you on the length of time you may have to wait  as this depends on members leaving which is impossible to predict, however as soon as place in the main Saturday sessions becomes available, Erica Redfern, the Membership Secretary will contact you by phone or by e-mail to offer you a place.  All offers are subject to children passing a swim assessment.

If your child attends training or a trial you are required to complete the parent consent form which doubles as the club membership form; and a Health Screen form for COVID-19. This provides us with key emergency contact details as well as medical information. Membership fees and Term Fees are invoiced using a PayPal invoice sent by e-mail. 



Please note that club membership does not include British Triathlon Membership which we recommend for those planning to race regularly.

Waiting Lists

Due to the popularity of the club there are waiting lists to join most groups summarized below as of 25 July 2020.

British Triathlon year groups are based on year of birth and we strictly follow this in our group structure.  The groups are not based on school year.

For those on the waiting list for Group F & C these groups are mixed with a wider age group so even though there may not be a waiting list it does depend on size of these groups.  

As a Triathlon club we do expect all members to be able to complete the swim distance that their age group would be racing, even though we have limited pool availalbity at the moment, there is no exception to this. Please refer to the details of the swim assessment.

WaldenJNR operate under  COVID-19 secure guidelines and the size of groups may change due to coach availability and Government / Sporting body guidelines.

* Note for those joining Group S from 2021 onwards this is the current size of the group waiting to join. So if below group size of 20 the group is not yet over subscribed. 


The Annual Membership fee is £10 per calendar year*. This enables the children to enter races under the club name. All new members will receive a drawstring transition bag and a club swim hat.

Term fees are paid at the start of each term for Saturday training.  To be a member of the club Saturday training is the main training day and is the core of the club sessions. The fee works out at £4.00 per week  for Groups 1, 2, F, and C and  £3.00 per week for Group S assuming the child attends every session.

Sibling discount

For members who have siblings term there is a discount for term fees  applied as follows:

20% second child
30% third child
40% fourth child

Note:  Discounts are applied to the younger siblings.  The club reserve the right to remove the discount if fees are not made promptly.  Within 10 days of invoice date.

Swim Sessions

For those children who sign up for the term swim sessions we also charge on a term basis of £4.00 a session to cover costs of the hire of the pool and lifeguards.  Sibling discount also applies.

Queries on term fees please contact the Membership Secretary.

* For those who are turning 17 or older in the current year (Junior category) they can join the Senior club and pay a Membership Fee of £10 we will then refund the £10 Junior membership fee (if transfer by 31 January the next year).  They are then able to attend both junior and senior training sessions (additional session charges apply).  A parent consent form is required for any athlete training for under the age of 18. When training with Senior club sessions they will be expected to act and will be treated as an adult.  It should also be pointed out that there is no special consideration given to child protection as these are adult sessions.

All fees are invoice using a PayPal e-mail invoice, and it helps save volunteer time if these are paid promptly and we don't need to chase.

Attendance Policy

As a competitive Triathlon club for young people we are dedicated to ensuring that members get the very best out of their membership.  Regular training is essential to maintain and improve technique and fitness – and to maximise the opportunity to do well in competitions.  Training with friends also provides an essential social aspect to sport.

Of course we understand that members will not be able to attend every session, for a host of reasons, such as injuries, competing in events, triathlon or others, or playing in team sports, and we support our members taking part in a wide variety of activities.

However we have a long waiting list, and if your child is only going to attend one or two sessions per half term it really isn’t fair on those who are keen to join, and have to wait until a space becomes available.  Plus of course you cannot be your best if you don’t train
