It is essential that all participants take out additional Travel Insurance which is stated to provide cover for Gymnastics activity. These arrangements can be made through the BG website within the insurance centre www.bg-insurance.org/
or from another provider. If another provider is used, please ensure that it provides medical cover for Gymnastics as BG will request this information on registration.
Legislation requires that when a club takes gymnasts under the age of 18 on a journey involving an overnight stay, the club must ensure that there is a designated trained person responsible for child protection on the trip. To be suitably trained, the person must hold a current BG DBS disclosure and a valid BG recognised Safeguarding qualification. Initial 3-hour face to face Safeguarding courses can be accessed locally, an annual refresher is then required for certification to remain valid. To adhere to CPSU child protection standards the designated person must not be related to or in a relationship with the coach attending the trip in any way. British Gymnastics do not recommend that the designated person is a key member of the coaching team.
All coaches and volunteers travelling with the team must have a current BG DBS disclosure in place.
