One of the many benefits of being a registered member of Scottish Gymnastics is that we arrange insurance designed to protect you whilst you are taking part in the sport.
To support this, we have a new dedicated insurance website which provides you with details about the insurance cover and how to make a claim, whether you are a gymnast, coach, judge or someone responsible for running a club.
Scottish Gymnastics clubs should keep a record of all accidents/incidents whether major or minor in your Accident Report book which should be kept within the club.
However, it is important that all accidents that may give rise to a claim are reported to Scottish Gymnastics as soon as possible after the event. This will enable Insurers to carry out investigations at an early stage whilst information relating to the claim remains fresh in the mind. This will also ensure that you are complying fully with Scottish Gymnastics’ policy terms and conditions.
Reporting an Incident
The process for reporting an accident/incident is changing. You will need to complete the online form by clicking on the ‘report an incident’ button which you will find on the homepage. This will take you through a serious of questions about what happened and who was affected. In the event of a claim, this form will provide a detailed view of what happened. This will replace the current accident form which will no longer be accepted by our insurer.
Directors and Officers
You may not realise it, but as a committee member you have a personal liability in respect of the management of your club, particularly if the club is unincorporated. Legal Liability insurance is available for Directors and Officers and provides cover in order to protect you if you are sued for negligent decisions. This is included in your club membership fee.

Our Insurer broker can also help with insurance for equipment, please contact Dominic Brosnan, W Denis at email@example.com who can provide a quote.
If you are taking your gymnasts away on a trip either within the UK or abroad, as well as completing the travel permit, you also need to have adequate travel insurance in place. Your SG membership insurance covers you and your gymnasts at the event, but it does not provide any cover for medical expenses, loss of luggage or travel delays.
Travel insurance quotes are provided directly through our insurers. Please contact Dominic Brosnan at W Denis who can arrange travel insurance for you.
