Insurance for Sports Coaches explained…
Here at Ripe we like to keep things simple. We pride ourselves on making insurance easy to understand so our customers know exactly what they’re paying for and why. Here are some of the questions we’re asked by customers and you might be thinking too.
I’ve heard I need Professional Indemnity insurance, what will that cover me for?
Whether you coach full-time, part-time or have a temporary contract there is always a risk of possible claims arising following incorrect advice or guidance given. Professional Indemnity protects your legal position in case you are ever sued for giving poor advice.
What other risks do I face?
If during a training session one of your clients gets injured and decides to sue you, a court could award damages against you based on the seriousness of the injury and the long-term effect it has on their life. In that kind of scenario, you could potentially face heavy compensation costs which could end your business, cost you your home or possessions and leave you bankrupt. Personal Trainers take out Public Liability cover to protect them against this risk.
You may also want to take out insurance to cover damage, loss or theft of any equipment you may use whilst coaching. Bibs, training equipment, goal posts, bats or stop watches all add up for example, and if any of that equipment is stolen, lost or damaged, you don’t want to be paying out for it twice. Plus, you may need Personal Accident and Loss of Earnings cover should you injure yourself whilst coaching and be unfit to work for a period of time.
