Whether you're taking your first steps in coaching or looking to maximise your coaching skills, explore the benefits of our membership packages, tailored to suit your specific journey.
PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE
Core Coach membership and Ultimate Coach membership will provide you with £15 million worth of Public Liability insurance that means if you cause an accident or damage to another person or their property whilst training in Britain and Europe, racing in Britain* or racing abroad at ETU and World Triathlon Championships, you are protected.
Ultimate Coach membership includes the added insurance protection when you are coaching or training abroad worldwide, and racing abroad beyond just ETU and World Triathlon Championships.
We know that as well as being a dedicated coach you may train and race regularly yourself. Our Public Liability insurance means you can do this 365 day a year with peace of mind that you are covered along the way, without worrying about being supported if an unfortunate accident should occur.
Not sure why you need Public Liability insurance? Remind yourself of what it is and what exactly it covers, plus scenarios that explain when it is needed on our dedicated insurance page.

PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY INSURANCE
As a dedicated swim, bike, run coach it is important to be able to coach knowing you are protected against claims if an incident should arise as result of your coaching.
Core Coach memberships and Ultimate Coach memberships include £10 million worth of Professional Indemnity Insurance that allows you to focus on providing the best possible coaching provision to your athletes, without needing to worry about being supported if anything happens to an athlete as a result of your instructions.
We know you always aim to provide the highest level of advice and service to athletes, but if any damages do arise from an act, omission or breach of your professional duty in the course of your coaching, British Triathlon ensure that you will be supported by our fantastic Professional Indemnity Insurance.
You are covered with Core Coach membership for your coaching in Britain and Europe.
With Ultimate Coach membership, cover extends to coaching abroad worldwide.

PERSONAL ACCIDENT COVER
Triathlon is a great sport but it is not without risks that come within the adventure and if you injure yourself training in Britain or Europe, or racing in Britain or abroad at ETU and World Triathlon Championships we want to help Core Coach members get back to triathlon quicker.
British Triathlon have secured fantastic Personal Accident cover that will help your recovery to make a strong return to the water, back to the bike and back on your feet. Whilst it is important to note that this cover isn’t at the level of private medical insurance, this fantastic Personal Accident cover provides a wealth of benefits that will support your recovery and ensure you can get back to training and racing. Including compensation for broken bones to dental cover to permanent total disablement, our specialist cover means you can focus hard on your triathlon goals without worrying about being protected if you become injured.
This cover is great for Core Coach members who are not only coaches but also active triathletes as it protects you in an accident where no one is at fault but also when someone else unfortunately causes you to become injured. To find out full cover levels and understand more about when you might need to claim, read more on our dedicated insurance page.
BICYCLE AND TRAVEL INSURANCE
Bicycle and travel insurance is not included as part of your British Triathlon Home Nation membership but we know how important it is to insure your prized triathlon possessions against theft or damage when training or travelling to events either in Britain or abroad.
To support you, Coach members can access discounts off bicycle and travel insurance with our insurance partner, Yellow Jersey.
Yellow Jersey’s insurance will cover all the bikes in your home under one policy for theft, crash and accidental damage and much more to give you peace of mind when training and racing. They have designed their market leading cycle insurance for triathletes and have developed specific travel insurance tailored to the needs of British Triathlon Home Nation members training and racing abroad.

Your membership card – digital or plastic – acts as your I.D., proof of insurance and your race licence so you never need to buy a day membership again, saving you time and money as you work towards getting on the start line.
