For Coaches and Judges

Coaches and judges who are members of British Gymnastics receive the benefit of Legal Liability and Personal Accident insurance to provide protection whilst participating in our sport.

What is Legal Liability insurance?

This is a type of insurance which provides indemnity against legal liability, including legal defence costs and damages, incurred through your actual or alleged injury to other people or damage to other people’s property.

This includes the professional advice you give whilst coaching any BG gymnastics discipline or activity in a BG recognised environment, provided that the activity falls within the remit of your BG approved training or qualifications.

Cover is provided up to a maximum of £15m. It will even protect you worldwide if you travel abroad on a trip agreed and approved by BG.

What is Personal Accident insurance?

Personal Accident insurance provides a fixed benefit payment if you sustain a specific injury whilst taking part in a recognised gymnastic activity, in a recognised environment, anywhere in the world.

The Personal Accident insurance is a 'non-fault' benefit which means insured members will receive the appropriate payment regardless of the cause of the accident, with no need to resort to litigation or prove negligence first.

Please note that if you are a Gold Member, you may be eligible for further weekly benefits following temporary total disablement.
