Sport Insurance is something that peaked my interest over 5 years ago. I began working with a cricket association and quickly gained traction in the field. Having grown up playing hockey, basketball, soccer, golfing and playing tennis I was constantly involved in sport. Cyprien wrote the following blog for me as he completes his Humber College sport management program.
