Specialist insurance for sports coaches

All our Sports Coaching and Instructor Insurance policies come with Public Liability, with options to cover up to £10 million. This will protect you from a claim should someone you are coaching or a member of the public get injured.

Optional benefits such as Employers’ Liability is available to businesses classed as a limited company or partnership, protecting you should any member of your staff get injured, and equipment cover can also be included on request.

So whether you are setup as a sole trader, partnership or limited company, and require sports coaching insurance for your business, we can offer cover to meet your needs.

As a sports coach, you will likely provide your services to clubs, after school groups and local authorities. You could be teaching a range of sports such as football, tennis, swimming or many others, all of which require sports coaching insurance.

How are you protected?

As a sports coach there is every possibility that you will see injuries occur in your line of work. However, if you or your business were to be blamed for those injuries, you will be protected with suitable insurance in place.

Our policy for coaches and instructors will protect you should a claim arise following an injury that is deemed your fault. This injury could be suffered by a client or another member of the public, but with Public Liability cover in place, you’re protected in both instances.

If you are blamed for an injury or damage to a third-party’s property you would also be covered, with the costs involved with defending yourself and should you be found negligent, the settlement of the claim, handled by your insurance.
