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 dedicated 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.
If you need to report an accident or incident, you will find the online form on the insurance website. Simply click the "report an incident" button on the right hand side of the home page.
If you are a little unsure of how this will work compared to the old system, we have addressed some of these points in the attached document. Just click HERE to read, and to see the questions from the online form which we hope explains things clearly.
Sports Health Insurance
Your Scottish Gymnastics membership provides personal accident cover if you are involved in a single identifiable accident leading to a specific injury whilst taking part in any Scottish Gymnastics discipline or activity in a Scottish Gymnastics environment. The cover is arranged primarily to assist with rehabilitation following an accident.
Whilst benefits are included for physiotherapy, manipulative massage and soft tissue treatment, this is not a private health insurance and the costs of medication, private consultation and surgery are not insured benefits and it also does not cover injury as a result of general wear and tear from training and competing.
Our insurance broker W Denis has access to a Sports Health Insurance range which has been specifically designed for amateur and professional sportspeople, clubs and club officials to ensure access to medical treatment as soon as the need arises.
This type of policy is essentially the same as any other UK based private health insurance – the exception being that sports participants can be covered without the usual general exclusion that is prevalent on standard Private Medical Insurance products. Individuals or team cover is available and you can get real time quotations.
