I know a couple coaches who won't train juniors because they don't want to have any responsibility for them riding on open roads.
I expect is it like any other casual thing. This is common SoCal from surfing, to soccer practice to bike riding. I had not heard of any court cases. My expectation would be there real liability would be almost nothing, but a lawyer can make something of nothing quite easily.
