EETC Junior membership automatically includes entry into the Junior Club League. Points are awarded for competing in a variety of races across the Eastern Region and London as well as our own EETC events.

Also every year, on the run up to the awards night, fellow junior club members have the chance to vote for the EETC 'Junior Triathlete of the Year' and the male and female winners are crowned at the awards night.
