Coaches Register

Coaches Register

Members of the Coaches Register are insured and licensed by Badminton Wales to carry out coaching activities within the parameters of the award they have gained. Acceptance onto the Coaches Register is subject to the satisfactory completion of a Disclosure & Barring Services (DBS) check.

Coaches are also expected to agree to and abide by the Badminton Wales Code of Ethics & Behaviours and Child Protection Policy. These documents together with further details about safeguarding children including DBS checks can be found in the Safeguarding & Child Protection section.

To be eligible to register coaches must have a current DBS check and hold one of the following coaching awards:

  • A UKCC Level 1 or higher UKCC award

  • The Badminton Wales Level 1 Advanced award 

The benefits you will receive are as follows: 

  • Sport & Recreation Liability Insurance Cover up to £5 million (providing both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance cover 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).

  • Full Membership of Badminton Wales which provides Personal Accident Insurance cover designed to provide compensation following injury whilst playing, training and travelling to and from organised club activities


Acceptance onto the Coaches Register is subject to the satisfactory completion of the DBS check. When this has been successfully completed, you will be added to the register and your benefits will commence. Badminton Wales no longer produces Coaches Register membership cards. Instead, on affiliation, you will be sent a letter and insurance certificate confirming your membership for the 2018-19 season.
