Coach Registration

The UKU Coach Registration Scheme is part of the wider UKU Coaching Scheme. Benefits of becoming a Registered Coach are public liability insurance and recognition of your coaching status by the governing body. It is particularly important to become a Registered Coach if you plan to work regularly with groups of children / young people under the age of 18, but you may also want to become a Registered Coach if you intend to work regularly with adults.

With a UKU Level 1 or Level 2 coaching qualification it is possible to work in schools as an Activator without becoming a Registered Coach, this should be discussed with the school in question and may depend on the regularity and set-up of your coaching.


The Coach Registration Scheme has an annual fee of £40.

Registration expires on 30th September and can be renewed along with membership.
