Organising and Running Tournaments


Our organisation's insurance policy will only cover your event if your club's affiliation to our organisation is up to date, if the minimum requirements for protective gear are in line with our health and safety policy and if the senior instructors of the organisation believe the event will be conducted in a safe fashion. There is a chapter in the health and safety policy (chapter 6, pages 23-25) that discusses tournaments specifically. Furthermore, there must be a qualified Academy instructor present, in order to ensure that the event runs safely and professionally.

The event must be run in an opt-in fashion. People must sign themselves up for participation in the event and they must know the minimum requirements for protective gear before signing up to the event.
