Of the many benefits offered by the CWA, Monument Sports Group insurance is one of the best known. The program continues to grow alongside the indoor climbing industry.

When the Monument Sports Group was awarded exclusivity for managing the CWA Insurance Program, the agency was tasked with providing stable access to insurance in the wake of the prior program’s troubles.

Nine years later, the value and stability provided by Monument Sports and the CWA Insurance Program cannot be understated. It’s hard to imagine all the unique circumstances Monument encounters on their journey to strengthening the CWA’s members. Monument has been able to find creative solutions for innovative business ideas and industry trends.

As the exclusive program administrator for the CWA, Monument Sports provides insurance and risk management guidance to CWA member gyms, vendors, and to the association. Their experience has been built over the long-term insuring professional and amateur sports leagues and indoor and outdoor multisport facilities.

While climbing gyms continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, new obstacles have developed and continue to directly impact the industry. As the pandemic evolved and faced an increasingly hard market, many insurance carriers have left the market altogether. Through Monument Sports’ partnership with the CWA, the risk of a hard market to members of the CWA Insurance Program is minimized. The myriad difficulties posed by COVID-19 are not going away, but neither is Monument.
