    Liability insurance for swim coaches

    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?

    Buy the kids teflon tech suits, football helmets and those lacrosse-shoulder-pad things. They won't swim fast, but they and you will be safe.

    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.

    Contact the USMS insurance broker to see whether they might know of something.

    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.
