Cheerleading Insurance

Cheerleading has become an integral part of a great many sports, and indeed it has been elevated to a sport in its own right. Competitions are held nationally and internationally, with coaches choreographing ever-more ambitious routines in order to win the approval of the judges. In such a high-flying, twisting-and-turning world, cheerleading insurance is a must-have for everyone who wants to maximise their enjoyment of the sport.

Our mission at Insure4Sport is to ensure that you can enjoy your experience of Cheerleading, whether Coaching, participating or volunteering, and feel safe that you are properly covered.

Whether you perform your cheerleading for recreation or competitions, it really doesn’t matter because Insure4Sport will cover you for all, including stunting and non-stunting cheerleading.

Common Cheerleading Injuries

Cheerleaders, along with gymnasts, have one of the highest injury rates of any athletes, including football and rugby. Cheerleaders need to perform many strenuous exercises in a short space of time and therefore require great balance, timing, technique, strength and flexibility.

Muscle Pulls & Tears

Due to the sudden, explosive movements a cheerleader puts themselves through in a routine, the chances of a pull or tear to almost any muscle in the body is not uncommon. The best way to prevent an injury of this type is to stretch extensively before each session and make sure your whole body is loose and ready for those powerful movements.

Whiplash/Neck Injuries

Whiplash injuries are not uncommon for cheerleaders - any fall from a reasonable height that snaps the head backwards can cause a whiplash injury. At the very least you could experience dizziness and headaches, but at the most you may dislocate or fracture your cervical vertebra in your neck.

Injuries to your neck can be very serious, therefore should be treated by experienced emergency medical personnel only. It is very important that if your neck does snap back in any activity you do that you do not attempt to move until an ambulance arrives and an experienced medical professional can stabilise your neck.

Why choose our Cheerleading Insurance?

An Insure4Sports cheerleading insurance policy can be tailored to the needs of individuals, clubs and coaches.

If you compete outside the UK, you can request either European or Worldwide cover to ensure that you’re always protected, no matter where you perform.

Our extensive cheerleading coaches insurance is ideal for anybody that runs cheerleading sessions and would like to have that peace of mind that should the unthinkable happen, you have something to protect you.

Finally at Insure4Sport we know that many sportspeople enjoy participating in lots of different sports – and we had you in mind when we introduced our multi sports cover which gives you cover for several sports under one policy.

For example, cheerleading is a Risk Group A sport, so you will be covered for all other Risk Group A sports under this policy. Other Risk Group A sports include dance, netball and athletics meaning that you can be insured for numerous sports under one cheerleading policy (coaches and individuals).

Having adequate cheerleading insurance gives you peace of mind and the confidence to go out there and perform to your very best.
