Sports Coaching Insurance

Protecting Your Business

Sports coaches and instructors often find themselves providing their services to clubs, after school groups and in some cases local authorities. As someone in a position of authority, you can be held accountable for your actions and for those you are instructing. As a result, you as the coach or instructor will normally be expected to hold adequate insurance cover. Protectivity offers exactly that in our specialist sports coaching insurance, protecting you from an incident which may result in a claim against you.
