For Parents, Guardians and Carers

To protect your child whilst taking part in gymnastics, they receive the benefit of Legal Liability and Personal Accident insurance, as part of their membership of British Gymnastics.

What is Legal Liability insurance?

If your child is held responsible for loss, damage or injury to someone else or their property, this policy will cover the cost of defending a claim as well as any damages awarded against them.

Cover is provided up to a limit of indemnity of £15m and will protect your child worldwide if they travel abroad on a trip agreed and approved by British Gymnastics.

Safeguarding of children is of the utmost importance to British Gymnastics. To ensure the safest sporting environment all British Gymnastics members and clubs have to commit to the British Gymnastics Safeguarding and Protecting Children Policy.

What is Personal Accident insurance?

The Personal Accident Insurance arranged on behalf of British Gymnastics for the benefit of its members primarily provides cover if your child sustains an injury as a result of a specific incident whilst taking part in a recognised gymnastic activity, in a recognised environment, anywhere in the world to assist with rehabilitation and recovery.

The Personal Accident insurance is 'non- fault' benefit which means insured members will receive cover appropriate to their level of membership regardless of the cause of the accident with no need to resort to litigation or prove negligence first.
