Participants Legal Liability provides coverage for claims you are legally obligated to pay because of actions brought against you, the Named Insured, by players and/or other participant(s). Participant means any player, coach, manager, staff member, team worker, official, media personnel, cheerleader, or band member practicing for, or participating in, the sporting event. This means all of your team members and players and any participating non members! Participant liability insurance, like all liability policies, would provide coverage to the injured party only if the tenant user were liable.
