Why do we include Professional Liability insurance?

Coaching is not a regulated profession in most parts of the world or Canada so many coaches assume they do not need professional liability insurance. That is not necessarily true.  Coaches are even more important than ever today as Athletes consider there coaches to be professional and rely on their expertise.

Coverage is inexpensive and while you may never have to utilize it, you can rest a bit easier as you build your practice and sharpen your professional skills.
