Licensing, insurance and DBS checks
The Community Athletics Activator Resource and workshop does not form part of any UKA coaching or leaders’ coaching licence qualification. Participants who attend or complete any future Activators' workshop will not automatically become UKA licensed coaches unless they have undertaken a formal coaching qualification in addition. Attendance at the course will not automatically require participants to complete a DBS check and will not provide the participant with insurance to deliver the programme or activity.
It is crucial that local project organisers make their own arrangements to ensure that their sporting activities are covered by appropriate accident and public liability insurance. Furthermore, project organisers must ensure that any volunteers, helpers or activators who work with young athletes have undertaken a DBS check.
Further information on DBS requirements and safeguarding and protecting children can be obtained by visiting the Home Office website or by visiting our welfare page.
