Tailored insurance for sports coaches and instructors

As a sports coach or sports instructor, helping people reach their potential is what you do best. From community sports coaching right through to coaching for competitive sport, we know you’ve got your trainees’ best interests at heart.

But anything sports-related also comes with a certain amount of risks and responsibilities, and no matter how careful you are there’s always the chance that someone may get hurt or their property may be damaged.

Sports coaching insurance from Simply Business can protect you from those costly compensation claims, plus protect other parts of your business including your business equipment, buildings and contents.

What are the insurance requirements for a sports coach?

You can decide which insurance covers to buy based on the needs of your business, but these are some covers that are likely to be useful for many sports coaches and instructors:

  • Public liability insurance covers you if someone is injured or their property is damaged and your business is held responsible. For example if someone was injured during one of your coaching sessions and they claimed compensation from you, your insurance could pay the compensation costs and legal fees, up to the limit of your policy
  • Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that have employees. This can pay compensation claims made by employees who have been injured or have fallen ill as a result of working for you
  • Business equipment insurance can pay for repair or replacement of your equipment if it’s lost, stolen or damaged
