Board Development Support

British Triathlon Federation

The British Triathlon Federation is responsible for UK participation and Olympic medals (!) in the world's fastest growing sport.

First Ascent has supported the Board of British Triathlon for over four years, during the time the sport has gone through a significant period of growth and popularity, whilst in parallel modernising the governance of the sport throughout the UK. We are working with the BTF team, to help meet their ambitions for success at London 2012.

First Ascent hosts Board Development weekends, where the Board takes time to develop their effectiveness and review the overall strategic direction of the organisation. 121 coaching support to Board members is provided between the development weekends.


We also support Triathlon England, Welsh Triathlon and Triathlon Scotland.

Sarah Springman OBE, CBE, President of British Triathlon, says:

“First Ascent has been absolutely invaluable in helping us to review our roles, focus our strategy and improve our ability to communicate effectively with each other, with key stakeholders and with the wider organisation. We won Sports Governing Body of the Year last year - thank you to First Ascent!”
