Whether amatuers or professionals (coaches, teachers, etc.) those participating in high risk sports enjoy the extra thrill of their chosen sport.
With the higher risk, there is a significantly greater chance of being injured when practicing, training or participating in the event. For example, there is a significantly greater chance of being injured while running with the bulls or wingsuit jumping or flying than there is with lawn bowling, as an example.
Although there is a possibility of injury requiring medical attention in all sports, the likelihood is much greater in wind suit flying than lawn bowling, thus the risk of being injured and requiring treatment is higher. Hence this insurance is more difficult to find, and more expensive.
Given that not so many people take part in these sports, the insurance is different, often with various restrictions, terms, conditions. As a result, discussing with a knowledgeable advisor to make sure you are covered properly is a wise investment.
