I am the head of a new rugby club at my college but we are running into a wall and that is the insurance company. In order to get the club off the ground we need to present a proposal on cost of the sport (jerseys, goal posts, equipment, coaching, etc) but the main hurdle in the cost is the liability issue with an insurance company. Anyone know any resources to use when presenting the safety involved in rugby and how it should not be considered a liability?

Have you talked to your State's rugby union. I know in Canada that we are all registered and insured under Rugby Canada and it is for a term of 1 year. I think you might be surprised how your State's rugby union would be willing to help.

 I would get in contact with the USA rugby foundation.  Google it and send them an e-mail with your questions.  Also, try contacting the head of other college rugby programs to see how they have handled it.
