It protects coaches against legal costs and claims for damages to third parties which may arise out of an act, omission or breach of their professional duty in the course of their coaching.

Club Associates

Members of affiliated clubs are insured for recognised sessions and activities of the club. However, these club members will not be insured if they are paddling at other times.

If you think you will be paddling outside of sessions organised by your club you will need to purchase your own membership from the National Association where you live.
