What is the Swim England Insurance Centre?


Whether you are a participant, teacher, coach or an officer responsible for running a club, you will find information in the Swim England Insurance Centre about the insurance, included within your membership affiliation to Swim England, to protect you whilst you are taking part in our sport.

All individuals who take part in swimming and other acitivites recognised by Swim England*, either as administrators, coaches / teachers or participants, have a Duty of Care to ensure they do not cause injury or financial loss to anyone or damage to anyone's property.

Swim England members are covered by Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance policy arranged with Hiscox. This protects affiliated members, teachers and coaches, officials and clubs if held responsible and are negligent for causing injury to someone else or damage to someone's property whilst undertaking swimming and other activities recognised by Swim England.

Swim England members also benefit from a basic Personal Accident insurance - This 'no fault' benefit provides cover to Swim England members for death and permanent total disablement injury whilst taking part in swimming, diving and aquatic activities recognised by Swim England.

Club committees also benefit from Directors & Officers Insurance and Commercial Legal Advice and Expenses to assist in the daily running of the club.
