Registered coach

What is the Coaching Register?

Coach Registration is the basic level of coach accreditation and issued to those who fulfil the minimum standards of deployment and earn less than £10,000 per year through coaching. We expect all coaches actively coaching to be on the Coaching Register as a minimum, allowing them to promote themselves to parents, players and clubs as being safe to coach. In addition to this, being a registered coach means they receive public liability and professional indemnity insurance, which protects the coach in the event that a player is injured whilst under their supervision.
