Public Liability Insurance

All individuals involved with your club, either as administrators, coaches, officials, referees or players, should do everything reasonable to ensure they do not cause injury or financial loss to anyone or damage to anyone's property. If their actions do cause injury, loss or damage and 'negligence' can be proved, they become legally liable to pay compensation.
