Club Insurance

As of 1st January 2013 BHP Insurances Ltd is the insurance broker for Swim Ireland.

The Federation of Irish Sport (of which over 60 National Governing Bodies including Swim Ireland are members) recently appointed BHP Insurances Ltd to operate a new group insurance scheme specifically designed for National Governing Bodies, sports clubs and individuals with a view to ensuring a good deal for sport. BHP Insurances Ltd has been brokering community group schemes since 1998. Together with IPB Insurance Ltd, the underwriters of the scheme, they will ensure that, should the need arise, members will receive the back up of a fast, efficient and experienced claims service.

BHP Insurances Ltd is interested in having a real partnership with us in order to seek to address the insurance needs of Swim Ireland, its Regions, Clubs and members. click here to find a document explaining the new insurances and details of whom to contact if you have any questions or claims to submit.

In particular, we are delighted to report that Swim Ireland has purchased enhanced cover for our Regions, Clubs and members in the form of increased public liability cover and the addition of ‘Personal Accident’ cover which now includes cover for certain medical, dental and physiotherapy expenses, the detail of which is explained in the document. We have taken this cover on in 2013 with a view to offering further support to our members but whether this cover is sustainable in the long run will depend on the claims and associated premium costs this year.

We also understand that BHP Insurances Ltd is willing to offer additional insurances to Clubs for camps and trips abroad if this is required.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to make contact as referenced in the attached document.
