When an individual purchases their AU Membership they are then covered for their Athletic Union activity by Endsleigh's Essential Personal Accident Insurance Plan for Students. A summary of this document can be found here. Please note however, that it covers you only for very serious injury, disablement and death. It does NOT cover you for medical expenses, physiotherapy or private healthcare. If you require an enhanced level of cover, you are advised to take out your own separate private healthcare/Personal Accident insurance cover.
The Union also takes out special insurance to cover trials and taster sessions, hence why it is vital we are aware of when these are.
Paid coaches must also have public liability insurance, something which is checked during the coaching contract process.
