Sports Federation

Sports Federation Insurance is a mandatory personal injury insurance that must be purchased when joining one of RUSU’s sports clubs.

The price is £15 for the year and you will be prompted to add this when you buy online. For sports that use the SportsPark facilities on campus an additional £5 for the year is required to gain access to the facilities unless you are already a member of SportsPark. A list of these can be found below. This needs to be paid directly to the SportsPark on your first entry.

Why the £5 difference? Well, for many years anyone using the facilities at SportsPark has either had to have the ‘Classic Membership’ of SportsPark or pay a £1 guest fee each time. The new price eliminates this, meaning that anyone using the facilities will no longer have to pay the £1 guest fee! That’s a great saving, especially if you have training more than once a week. If you are already a member of the SportsPark then this £5 fee will not apply to you.

In order to gain membership to a RUSU sports club, students must purchase Sports Fed Insurance. This covers personal injury insurance and for those sports that use the SportsPark, their classic membership.
