J Star Gymnastics Club Membership
This membership is compulsory and includes membership to the British Gymnastics Association (BGA) which encompasses insurance and therefore is essential for participation in gymnastics at any BGA registered club. In order to adhere to the policies set out by the BGA, new members need to be registered with the association within 3 weeks of commencing participation. The fee is then due annually at the beginning of each Autumn (September) term.
One of the many benefits of being a registered member of British Gymnastics is that we arrange insurance designed to protect you whilst you are taking part in the sport.
The British Gymnastics website provides you with more details about the insurance cover including how to make a claim, whether you are a gymnast, coach, judge or someone responsible for running a club.
Insurance coverage provided includes:
- Legal Liability insurance – protects BG registered clubs, members, coaches, judges should they face legal action for causing an injury to someone or damages someone’s property.
- Personal Accident insurance – a range of fixed financial benefits are provided in certain circumstances, without the need to prove anyone was negligent.
- Legal Expenses insurance – specified legal expenses cover is given, supported by a legal telephone helpline. This is for the benefit of member Clubs.
Please go onto the British gymnastics website for more information.
The Annual Membership you require if your child is aged between 4 & 16 is the Bronze Membership and costs £17 per year (1st Oct-31st Sept).
This membership is for gymnasts that are taking part in recreational gymnastics or just starting to take part in local competitions. Whether you are new to the sport and finding out which style of gymnastics you enjoy the most, or you have been taking part for some time and are now competing in local-level competitions, Bronze membership is perfect for you.
