I received the following email from the WABC and want to pass on the information:
Liability Insurance Available for Individual Swim Teachers at a Savings !
If you operate as an individual swim teacher in the United States, Canada or the U.K., you probably have been stepping up and paying at the high minimum insurance rate as if you were a full sized learn to swim business.
For current WABC members, we now can point you to our source at the rate of ~ $200 per year (rather than 4, 5, or 6 times that) for 2 million single and 3 million aggregate coverage. Proof of insurance, and also-named additions (the company that is renting you pool time typically wants to be named also on your policy). Easy one-page form and short 24 hr confirmation of coverage with proof of insurance in your hand.
So email office@WABCswim.com
for details. The company also does write general commercial liability insurance for swim schools, swim academys in the US, Canada, and the UK. if you'd like a competitive quote.
Take action today before spending too much on your insurance (if you are an individual swim teacher).
