The Badminton Ireland Coaches Licence scheme ensures that all coaches are meeting the legal requirements in terms of Garda Vetting, Child Protection and hold professional qualifications. The licence is required to be renewed each year and falls in line with the affiliation window. Badminton Ireland wishes to maintain and build on the high standard of coaching already present. The first step is to ensure all active coaches are licenced and meet the legal and professional requirements.
Members who are affiliated are covered by the Badminton Ireland insurance for their personal play, the affiliation, however, this does not cover members who coach privately so any claims made by third parties for bodily injury as a result of any negligence on the part of the coach or club will not be covered by the insurance.
For a member to have insurance for coaching they must join the Badminton Ireland Coaching Licence*. The coaches licence costs €50 per year which works out at just €4.16 per month for Badminton Ireland members.
The licence fee of €50 will cover:
- - Professional indemnity insurance up to €1m*
- - Reduced cost for Coaches Conference and CPD Courses.
- - Free access to Teicnic Badminton.
- - Opportunities to gain paid coaching work.
- - Optional inclusion in the Coaches Directory.
- - Free update courses to the latest qualifications.
*More details on the Coaches Licence can be found here.*
We will be updating the coaches licence list in the coming weeks so it is important to get your licence fee in ASAP.
