Coverage under the Scheme

The policy operates when any of the people/groups listed below are engaged in an activity which is “recognised or authorised by England Netball”. The activities that we “recognise and authorise” are detailed in our most current Policies, Rules and Regulations, which the “FAQs” below seek to clarify.

Members are covered for Liability and Personal Accident Insurance if they have paid the appropriate Affiliation fee and all other participants in that activity are affiliated.  Personal Accident cover remains if any of the participants are non affiliated but is reduced to ‘Silver’ cover:

  • A Member (Registered Participant) of:
  • A Club (‘Gold’ level cover)
  • A Young Persons’ Group (‘Gold’ level cover)
  • A College or University, ‘Associate’, Youth Club or Junior League (‘Silver’ level cover)
  • A County Association Committee (including the County Schools Committees and their activities) (‘Gold’ level cover)
  • A Regional Association Committee or Management Board (including Regional Schools Committees and their activities) (‘Gold’ level cover)
  • The Committee of a Club or League in which all Participants are affiliated to England Netball (volunteers may be insured separately on payment of an additional fee - please see section below) (‘Gold’ level cover)
  • An affiliated IRP (Independent Registered Participant) i.e coach / umpire / tutor / match official / volunteer, appropriately qualified to England Netball via their County Netball Association (‘Gold’ level cover)
  • An England Netball or ESNA Honorary Life Member (‘Gold’ level cover)

An additional fee may also be paid to obtain the Liability and Personal Accident Insurances, for Volunteers of England Netball affiliated Clubs/Leagues (whom are not participating in netball activities).By taking out separate insurance cover with England Netball or taking advantage of the newly introduced ‘Silver’ cover for netball activity with non members, you must agree to keep a register of all participants at matches, training sessions, etc, for a period of at least three years. This register must be available for England Netball to view at any time.
