I am coaching a summer league team (non USA Swimming) next year and would like to have a professional liability policy to cover me. This is proving difficult. My homeowners umbrella won't cover it. The various companies out there that insure "fitness" professionals specifically exclude coaching of a competitive team. The HOA policy for the pool wants $700 to add me, which is pretty high.

I am wondering if anyone out there can provide direction on this matter for me?

Try Esix insurance.

They do the triathlon coaches insurance, which is the only policy I have seen that will individually cover a coach working in open water.

Thank all of you very much.

Sadler sports does not cover coaches of competitive teams.

Esix global does not answer phones so I have emailed them.

Will try the USMS risk person on Monday.

Appreciate all the input.
