SMA Sports Trainer Membership is highly encouraged for all working Sports Trainers, from community level sport right through to those involved in elite level sport.

A major benefit of Sports Trainer Membership is the specially tailored insurance package which has been carefully designed for working Sports Trainers. Despite even the best of training, as a working Sports Trainer, it is important to make sure you are adequately covered by insurance so you are covered for the worst case scenario.
