If my Coach Membership is suspended, am I covered by Insurance?   

No, in order to maintain your insurance cover you must hold an active Coach Membership. If you do not meet the Tennis Australia coach membership conditions, you will not be covered by insurance.

As a Trainee coach member, am I covered by Insurance if my head-coach is not at the venue?   

In the case of the head-coach not being present at the venue, the Trainee coach member will only be covered by insurance if they are working off an approved lesson plan set-out by a Tennis Australia qualified coach and/or Tennis Australia.

Is my business covered under my Coach Membership insurance? 

Your business can be named on your coaches cover and will be covered under this policy, only within the policy terms and conditions. Therefore, only a claim relating to the business activity of ‘tennis coaching’ would be claimable under the policy. If your business is involved in anything other than tennis coaching, then this will not be covered under this insurance.

Are my assistant coaches covered if I have a Business Coach Membership? 

No. All coaches must be Tennis Australia Coach Members to be covered by the Tennis Australia Insurance Program.

Am I covered by insurance through my Club’s Affiliation?

No. Tennis Coaches are not covered under the Club Affiliation insurance program.

The below table will provide clarification on the differences of Coach Membership insurance and Club Affiliation insurance.
