You are covered to coach in any British Rowing affiliated club or any competition or activity approved by British Rowing.
Yes, but you must be experienced within the sport, be capable of undertaking appropriate risk assessments and ensure that you are up to date and familiar with British Rowing coaching practices, code of conduct and policies.
No, liability resulting from a road accident should be covered under you motor insurance, including towing. We would recommend that you check with your motor insurer that the appropriate cover is in place.
Not under the liability insurance, as you can't claim for damage to your own property. You should arrange asset cover for your boats and equipment, which can be done via Elite Rowing Insurance. Please click here for further details.
Professional indemnity provides cover following negligent advice. If you are a coach registered with British Rowing, this cover will protect you in the event that an injury results from a negligent act or ommission in your coaching.
There have been cases of members of sports clubs having disputes. Posts on websites and contained in emails could be potentially libellous, for example, and this section of cover may protect you if it is alleged that you have defamed someone else.
If someone is injured or their property is damaged whilst you are coaching you should report the details to Perkins Slade and British Rowing as soon as possible. Click here for details.
We believe that £10m is the minimum amount of cover to provide you with peace of mind in the event that you were held responsible for causing a catastrophic injury to someone. We have already seen sports related claims that have exceeded £10m.
