When does cover apply?

You are covered as a coach when you are coaching at a Basketball England affiliated club or directly on behalf of the Association.

If you are coaching on a freelance basis or receiving payment, whether as a sole trader or as a company, you are not covered under the Basketball England block insurance policy and should ensure that you arrange your own liability cover in respect of your coaching activities: Please contact Howden for further details.
