Why Should I Get Insured?

Sir Clive Woodward, World Cup winning Head Coach of England Rugby Union and insure4sport Ambassador, puts it best:

Being properly prepared is the key to success. Choosing the right insurance should be a key part of your preparation.


Insurance for cheerleader coaches and instructors is essential to the education process of cheerleading. It can cover you if you were to suffer an injury during a session that results in you being unable to work and require physiotherapy treatment.

As well as covering your personal well-being, insurance can cover session participants also. It covers you if someone injures themselves and brings a claim for compensation against you taking away the hassle of legal procedures.

It also can cover you if any of the exercises, moves or actions taught are brought into question should anyone in your training session suffer an injury.

Sports Hall

There is also the option to cover the equipment in the training room. As expected it covers any of your equipment if it was to be damaged or stolen. As well as this, the venue hosting your sessions may have equipment that you don’t necessarily use and may suffer from damages – sport insurance can protect you.

The UKCA have partnered with insure4sport to create a bespoke insurance policy for cheerleading coaches and instructors. The cheerleading policy covers all cheerleading disciplines, including acrobatics and there is additional options for sports accident and sports equipment cover also.

If you’re thinking of getting insurance but still have any questions, consult insure4sport’s FAQ page for answers.

Also, during the application process make sure you quote the UKCA.


So with insurance being a key part of preparation: if you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail.
