How to find advanced liability insurance for training instructors and coaches

Sep 10th 2015 at 3:50 AM

It’s no coincidence that liability insurance is taught as a basic requirement in business courses. Liability coverage and risk management have been standard requirements for business owners, homeowners and employers since, well, forever.

The booming sports training industry has the dubious distinction of being one of the standard testing grounds for legal liabilities. Sports injuries can involve a whole range of issues, from a slippery floor to somebody simply landing on a mat the wrong way. In contact sports, of course, the risks are amplified by the number of players and the type of sport.

One of the problems for trainers and coaches is that it is very difficult to quantify possible risks. Sports injuries can incur some pretty horrific costs and ongoing costs, sometimes running into millions of dollars.

Ironically, the problem isn’t that trainers and coaches don’t know all this. One of the major problems is simply finding appropriate liability cover. Demand for good liability insurance, in fact, is quite high.

The other problem is quality of cover, particularly the usually spectacularly lousy “cookie cutter” liability insurance. It need hardly be mentioned that El Cheapo insurance which doesn’t do what you need it to do is basically worthless to you, even if it makes nice premiums for insurance companies.

The trick is to get a specialist liability insurance company. You need experts, the kind who are also very useful when it comes to assessing risk. To save you some time looking we found a company called Xinsurance to use as a good example of a specialist insurer.

These are experienced insurers who understand all your liability issues and provide custom liability insurance for coaches. Custom insurance is quite a few steps up from standard cover. This insurance is tailored to meet the specific demands of liability insurance for instructors and coaches. Better still, these guys speak your language, know the problems, and know the fixes.
