PSA Instructor Liability Insurance
Professional Skaters Association offers this important coverage as a resource to PSA registered member instructors to further protect themselves for day-to-day instruction activities. The PSA Instructor Liability Program includes General Liability insurance. The General Liability policy provides liability protection to participating member instructors from claims brought by third parties alleging bodily injury, property damage, and personal or advertising injury in connection with covered activities. (Many venue owners will require this insurance before an instructor is allowed to use a facility).

In addition, the program provides Participant Accident coverage (excess medical coverage) for member instructors while participating in the approved activities.

Collection of waivers from skating participants is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by the insurance carrier. Samples have been provided below for your use.
Collection of waiver and release forms is an important protection method for skating instructors as this provides an acknowledgement by the participant of the risks associated with figure skating activities and it is also an agreement the individual will not bring a lawsuit against the instructor. It is an assumption and agreement of risk. With this in mind, please be sure to have all participants sign a waiver and release form to help better protect yourself. Many lawsuits transpire long after an incident has occurred, so please be sure to keep a copy of these signed documents in a safe place for future reference and/or claims handling purposes.
For your reference, we have included two sample waivers (one for adults, one for minors) in the links below:
