As a player or coach within an affiliated team or club you are provided with Public Liability insurance whilst you are taking part in a recognised activity. This policy will cover the cost of defending yourself against a claim if you are held responsible for loss, damage or injury to someone else or their property.

Member-to-Member liability is also included within the policy, the cover will defend one insured member if another member is injured and claims against them.

The coaches also receive Professional Indemnity insurance which will cover the cost of defending a claim made against you following negligent advice whilst coaching provided that the activity falls within your coaching remit.

Cover is provided for up to £10 million for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity, cover operates worldwide if you are taking part in a recognised BSF activity, this includes training and competing at events.
