The Badminton Ireland Coaches Licence scheme ensures that all coaches are meeting the legal requirements in terms of Garda Vetting, Child Protection and hold professional qualifications. The licence is required to be renewed each year and falls in line with the affiliation window. Badminton Ireland wishes to maintain and build on the high standard of coaching already present. The first step is to ensure all active coaches are licenced and meet the legal and professional requirements.
Members who are affiliated are covered by the Badminton Ireland insurance for their personal play, the affiliation, however, does not cover members who coach privately so any claims made by third parties for bodily injury as a result of any negligence on the part of the coach or club will not be covered by the insurance. For a member to have insurance for coaching they must join the Coaching Licence. The coaches licence costs just €50 per year which works out at just €4.16 per month for Badminton Ireland members.
This season our sponsor Forza has offered us a reward for coaches who continue to renew their licence. Coaches can renew their licence for the standard €50 or pay €170* for the year and receive Forza gear worth up to €320 RRP.
The €170* fee includes the above and two Forza t-shirts, Boa Vista racket bag and a Badminton racket RRP €200. The total price for this gear RRP is €320.
*You can avail of this up until the 23rd December 2017.
