Governing bodies

With an increase in litigation against national sports governing bodies, for a variety of issues relating to safeguarding and discrimination, it is essential for major sporting associations and governing bodies to hold robust insurance protection. Without appropriate cover, the organisation could find themselves financially responsible for claims made against them where negligence attaches.

However, aside from concerns relating to financial liability, insurance can also help to support governing bodies in fulfilling your duty of care to the sport you govern, and to those that participate in that sport. Providing a solid insurance provision to your membership is often seen as one of the key benefits of an affiliation scheme.

One of our core services to membership organisations is the creation and continued maintenance of a Members Information Portal. This is an information centre hosting all pertinent facts for your clubs, coaches and members regarding the insurance cover provided as part of their affiliation. The site replicates the look and feel of the governing bodies’ website and includes FAQs, summaries of cover and policy wordings links to the association’s policies and procedures.We can also host online incident reporting direct to Sports Insure and the National Governing Body.

In our experience, these portals have proven to save time for clients as the information and incident reporting is readily available to members, resulting in a reduction in volume and frequency of members contacting the governing body. This is a valuable information tool as part of the membership offering for any organisation.
