Optional cover for Schools Rugby

The Australian Rugby Union does not provide sports accident insurance coverage for any individuals participating in rugby for their school. Such insurance coverage is the sole responsibility of the individual school through their school accident policy.

Optional sports accident coverage can usually be arranged through the ARU national insurance scheme on application. For further information, please contact Gow-Gates insurance brokers.

[Note: Several schools play within State Union sanctioned club competitions, and thus are required to take out compulsory coverage under the ARU national insurance scheme]. 

The Australian Rugby Union does provide public liability coverage and professional indemnity coverage for ARU and State Union staff delivering programs in schools through the ARU National Insurance Scheme.
