New One-Stop Shop for Sports Coach Insurance in Wales

author icon author icon 18 January 2018 author icon News

The Welsh Sports Association has teamed up with insurance experts Integro and Sportscover to develop a unique insurance product designed specifically for coaches in Wales (available here).

As the umbrella body for sport in Wales, we’ve worked with our members to gain a real understanding of what is needed by coaches from their insurance, and so our recommended Insurance Brokers Integro have approached leading Sports Underwriters Sportscover to develop an easy online system where coaches in Wales can get an instant quote for their comprehensive cover.

Victoria Ward, CEO of the Welsh Sports Association said:

“This is a great addition to the WSA’s member services. It provides excellent cover to protect coaches across Wales – providing peace of mind in knowing that they have quality insurance for when things go wrong, and allowing them to get on with developing their sport and helping us become a vibrant, active nation.”

Welsh sports coach, Teresa Goodwin, has taken out her own Coaches Insurance cover:

“Often I am coaching outside my National Governing Body’s activities. But due to the extra Coach Insurance that I buy I can be sure that, along with the people that I am instructing, I am protected if something were to happen”.

Both Integro and Sportscover specialise in sport and have many years’ experience in providing the right insurance solutions. With this knowledge, they provide insurance policies such as Combined Sports Liability and Personal Accident Insurance which are specifically developed to cover sport, whilst also recognising how important it is to provide excellent service to clients.

Martin Crannis, Sportscover Europe CEO said,

“We really value our partnership with the WSA and have been working on a number of initiatives to provide further benefits to the organisations affiliated to the WSA. This product has been developed specifically with the WSA member organisations, and their coaches, in mind and is easy to access, quick to purchase and provides excellent cover at a cost-effective price.

“We will continue to provide further products and benefits through the partnership during the coming year.”
