Back Insurance

Is our Club or Association insured if the coach is not qualified?

England Hockey strongly recommends that all coaches be insured through individual insurance or a Clubs/Associations insurance. To find out more about the coaching membership scheme, including insurance cover, head to the England Hockey Insurance webpage.

Unqualified coaches can still access insurance, via England Hockey, if they are NOT delivering entirely independently (e.g. they are not by themselves and with no support framework around their delivery), have accessed a relevant England Hockey CPD workshop and have completed approved safeguarding training and hold a valid DBS check.

Clubs/Associations should always check with their insurance provider that they do not have specific reference to qualifications (as a minority of providers do).
