  • What Insurance Policies are provided as part of Swimming Australia's membership?
  • Public Liability

    Public Liability Insurance is a vital protection for you and your club. It covers legal and medical costs if someone is harmed or property is damaged during your activities due to your negligence. This insurance shields against the financial burden of being held liable for such incidents. Essentially, it's a must-have for any business owner or sports club, providing coverage if you're sued for negligence leading to injury or property damage.

    Examples of Public Liability Claims

    • Example 1 – a sporting participant sustains a knee injury after tripping in a pothole on a sports field whilst participating in a game. He sues the Club for failing to provide a duty of care to the participants and their playing conditions.
    • Example 2 – a parent is walking around the pool deck and trips on an extension lead that the Club has run along the ground to power a starting machine. He suffers personal injury and sues the Club for negligence.

    Personal Accident

    Personal Accident Insurance covers you for injuries you sustain while participating in insured Swimming related activities, such as sanctioned events, training and official social events and fundraising activities including all direct travel to and from these events.

    Professional Indemnity

    Professional Indemnity Insurance is designed to cover you in the event of a claim made against you because of professional negligence caused by mistakes, bad advice or general poor workmanship.

  • How do I make a claim?
