Why do I need Insurance?

Insurance is a vital component which can provide protection should a third party, employee or member of the public be injured or property damaged. (Employers Liability is a legal requirement unsure? call us)

New to coaching?

As a new coach you will be required to hold the relevant qualification within your sport and accordingly be subjected to appropriate checks (CRB) Criminal Records Bureau and vetting and barring schemes required to your individual sport.

Need advice?

Coaches need to be aware of their legal responsibilities, especially with respect to the advice they give their athletes and the way they manage and supervise participants in sport.

Coaches have a legal responsibility to their athletes and should:

  • Give appropriate advice and guidance
  • Not offer advice beyond their level of qualification
  • Health and safety
  • Conduct

Coaches are responsible for the health and safety of the athletes in their charge. Coaches should have access to first aid facilities and have the means by which to contact emergency services.

As a coach you have a responsibility to protect children/vulnerable adults from all forms of abuse. There are four main kinds of abuse:

  • Neglect (providing inadequate food)
  • Emotional abuse (being threatened or taunted)
  • Sexual abuse (being shown pornographic material)
  • Physical abuse (hitting)
