Why do I need gymnastics insurance?
Gymnastics is a demanding sport, putting strain on every joint, bone and muscle in your body. It only takes one misjudged movement to hurt yourself or someone else, or damage third party property. Your equipment can also be easily lost, stolen or damaged before, during or after a gymnastics event or training session.
Insure4Sport’s gymnastics insurance is tailored to protect participants and instructors from the unforeseen, so you can always keep your mind on the mats.
What does gymnastics insurance cover?
Public Liability cover against injury or property damage:
As a gymnastics instructor, whatever level you teach – from beginners to adults – you always carry the risk of a student in your care getting injured, which could lead to a costly compensation claim. If you’re a gymnast, there’s also a chance you could miscalculate a move and damage third party property.
Insure4Sport’s Public Liability protects your legal accountability if a claim is made against you for either a third party injury, or accidental property damage.
- Our tailored Public Liability starts at £1 million of cover for instructors.
- You’ll also get £1 million of Professional Indemnity cover for free when you take out Insure4Sport’s Public Liability cover, protecting you against claims arising from advice you’ve given.
Personal Accident cover if you require treatment:
Landings are one of the most important gymnastics skills – but they don’t always go to plan. Whether you’re moving at speed on a beam, or at height on the rings, a fall or sprain could require medical treatment and leave you unable to teach or practice.
Insure4Sport’s Personal Accident cover makes sure the financial impact of any injuries are kept to a minimum.
- Insure4Sport provides up to £50,000 of Personal Accident cover, with £10,000 of cover for both participants and instructors.
- If you take out Personal Accident cover, you can also add Loss of Earnings cover for both participants and instructors.
Compensation for equipment repairs and replacements:
Equipment is an essential aspect of gymnastics, whether it’s a kit bag or pommel horse. If it was lost, stolen or damaged, you could be unable to train for a long time.
Thanks to Insure4Sport’s Equipment Cover, if your equipment is lost, stolen or damaged, we’ll make sure it’s repaired or replaced as quickly as possible.
- You can cover your gymnastics equipment against loss, theft and damage for up to £250 of equipment.
- If the item is less than one year old - and it was bought new - we’ll replace it New-for-Old. We’ll also make repairs or replacements up to the figure stated in your Insurance Schedule.
