Affiliation Benefits - Insurance

Insurance

Gymnastics Australia offers access to the National Risk Protection Programme (NRPP) which provides a set of insurance policies for different membership categories at a nationally negotiated rate.

The coverage provided under the Program comprises:

  • general liability;

  • management liability; and

  • personal accident

The range of insurances offered through the NRPP applies to gymnastics members as follows:

  • Participant = Personal Accident 

  • Technical Member = Personal Accident / Professional Indemnity 

  • Club Member (opt-in) = Management Liability / Public Liability 

Technical Member insurance is provided on a rolling 12-month basis aligned with the member’s renewal date. 

Participant and Club insurance is provided on a calendar year basis in line with the club affiliation year. 

The dates of the underlying insurance premiums may not exactly align with these membership periods. The national insurance policies renew annually on 1 November. GA will always ensure that an appropriate underlying insurance policy is in place to support members who have purchased insurance with their membership.

Travel Insurance for members

Note: Travel Insurance information must be read in conjunction with GA's current Position Statement regarding Domestic and International Travel, available here . The Position Statement also explain the limitations of the current insurance cover in relation to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

Whilst GA's current Programme covers members for Personal Accident Insurance in Australia, access to Travel Insurance will provide cover for a range of risks that may otherwise be limited when competing in international events. Three of these are listed below:
  1. Medical Expenses;

  2. Luggage and Personal Effects; and

  3. Missed Transport Connections

One of the most significant benefits associated with GA’s Travel Insurance Policy is that it covers 'Participation' in gymnastics. Many other travel policies strictly exclude sports participation; therefore, if you were injured whilst participating in a gymnastics event overseas, you may be unable to claim on your travel insurance. With participation included, the GA Travel Policy is better suited to a gymnastics tour. This is a substantial and unique benefit for affiliated clubs who have previously struggled to find appropriate and comparable insurance when travelling.

Process

It is important that clubs understand the process for placement of Travel Insurance as it is outlined as follows:

  1. Download the Tour Endorsement and Travel Insurance Application Form* (as below);

  2. Complete all relevant details as requested

  3. Submit the Form to GA (decision of endorsement may take up to two (2) weeks);

Upon endorsement:

  1. GA will provide a quote directly to the individual/club/State Association Member for Travel Insurance;

  2. Club confirms quote and placement of cover and pays premium prior to travel

* All Applications for Travel Insurance must first be endorsed by GA. All Clubs/State applicants should also note GA's Club-Program Tour Guidelines, as provided below.

Please note: Before entering into an insurance contract with a general insurer, please ensure you are aware of the policy wordings, terms and conditions.
