Coaches Register

Join the 2011-12 Coaches Register

Coaches should be aware that from 1st October 2011 Badminton Wales will only be able to insure those coaches who hold one of the following coaching awards:

  1. UKCC Level 1 or higher UKCC award
  2. The old 'Leaders', 'Intermediate' or 'Advanced' award and have successfully passed the Badminton Wales UKCC Level 1 Orientation exercise

and have been successfully CRB checked by Badminton Wales within the last three years.

Please note that CRB checks undertaken by other organisations are not currently acceptable as they are not transferrable.

Coaches must appear in name on the register in order to receive the Public Liability, Personal Accident and Professional Indemnity insurance detailed below.


Fees for the 2011-12 season are set as follows:

  • Individual Membership - £18
  • Family Membership - £30 (2 people in same family)
  • £40 (3 people in same family)
  • £50 (4 people in same family)     

Following advice from our insurance company please note the following change in relation to the fee for the Coaches Register:

If you are fully affiliated to Badminton Wales as a member of a club and that club has taken out the Badminton Wales Public Liability / Professional Indemnity insurance then, provided that you are coaching for free, you will be covered by the club’s policy and therefore no fee is required.

In all other circumstances the full fee is required in order for Badminton Wales to provide Public Liability / Professional Indemnity insurance cover.

If you were a member of the register last year and/or the previous year and your details have not changed you can renew your membership by sending an email confirmation to   although you will still need to post the payment (where appropriate) to the office. In all other cases you should complete and return the Coaches Register Application Form to the Badminton Wales office together with the payment (where appropriate). Cheques should be made payable to ‘WBU Ltd’.

If you would like to pay by Standing Order please contact Carly Harris on 029 2033 4941.

Badminton Wales is no longer producing Coaches Register membership cards. Instead, on re-affiliation, you will be sent a letter confirming your membership for the 2011-12 season.


Members of the Coaches Register automatically receive Personal Accident insurance designed to provide compensation following injury whilst playing, training and travelling to and from organised club activities. The standard benefits provided include cover for Medical Expenses, Physiotherapy, Loss of Income and Injury Assistance.

In addition members of the Coaches Register also receive Public Liability (up to £5 million) and Professional Indemnity (up to £1 million) insurance which provides cover for coaches who are found to be negligent in their duty to participants and spectators and as a result of their negligence cause personal injury or property damage.
