It’s really important that your club has got insurance to cover day to day operations and activities that your club runs. Combined Liability insurance is provided for your club when you affiliate to British Canoeing. Full details of cover can be found here.
Premises (including buildings) and contents insurance for your club are NOT included when you affiliate to British Canoeing. You will need to obtain separate insurance cover.
Club Associate members receive third party liability and professional indemnity insurance for any activity that has been assessed as part of the club’s activity, in accordance with the new definition of club activity.
Club Associate members are also covered by insurance when they coach and lead groups within the constraints of ‘club activity’, as long as they have undertaken a competency framework assessment.
Please note - As from 1st October 2020 club activity for English based clubs affiliated to British Canoeing is defined as:
‘Any activity that has been assessed as part of the club’s safety framework and promoted on the club calendar, website or noticeboard.’
‘Club activities also include inter-club activities where the responsibility for risk assessment and management is carried out and then shared between all participating clubs.’
Entry-level competition and participation events
Club Associate members are covered by insurance for entry-level competitions organised for, or on behalf of, British Canoeing Discipline Committees, or participation events organised by Regional Development Teams.
