SU Sports Federation Policy
The Students’ Union insists that every member of a Students’ Union club, who wishes to participate in training or matches at Anglia Ruskin University, must have valid Sports Federation insurance.
Membership to the Sports Federation is open to all Anglia Ruskin students. Non-students may also take out Sports Federation which allows them to train but not compete in matches.
Students’ Union staff will carry out periodic spot checks at club training sessions and matches to ensure all players hold valid Sports Federation insurance. The Students’ Union reserves the right to suspend students from participating in sport if they are found not to hold a Sports Federation card.
Clubs must present a list of members and Sports Federation numbers to the Students’ Union by Monday 8th October 2012.
It is the responsibility of the Club President to ensure that every student holds Sports Federation insurance before they are permitted to participate.
Clubs that allow members to participate without Sports Federation insurance will result in their grant allocation being reduced / withdrawn or in extreme circumstances the club may be closed.
