Membership & Insurance

All learners that attend a Triathlon Scotland coach education course must have an appropriate level of professional indemnity insurance for all aspects of their coaching practice. This cover must remain in place during the course.

This insurance protects coaches from claims made against them which could incur through coaching. An example of this could be a person who was injured during a coaching session and felt the coach was to blame through action or inaction.

Why do coaches need Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance cover?

This cover recognises that any qualified coach could be found negligent in their duty to participants, spectators or the public, arising out of their conduct including professional acts, advice, errors or omissions and as a result be held legally liable for loss (financial or otherwise). Qualified affiliated coaches are also covered for Public Liability should they be held legally liable for damage to third party property or bodily injury to third parties following their negligence.
