In simple terms, the Liability insurance policies will cover

  • Professional Indemnity
    Cover to protect a BKSA affiliated club or coach for claims made against them which allege that a third party has suffered an injury or financial loss caused by a negligent acts, errors or omissions during coaching activities that were provided in return for a fee
  • Employers Liability
    Provides cover in respect of claims made against the BKSA affiliated club for injuries caused to an employee of the club arising out of and in the course of their such employment (including volunteers)
  • Officers & Committee Liability
    Provides cover for claims made directly against individuals at a BKSA affiliated club e.g. officer, committee member, director and/or trustee for alleged wrongful acts in connection with the club affairs.

Alongside the Liability insurance  we have arranged cover for members if they are accidentally injured when participating in a sanctioned activity or event, or whilst taking part in a club organised training activity.  The covers also apply during a club organised social event.
