ALLIANCE MANAGEMENT GROUP INSURANCE COVERAGE

General Liability Insurance

Alliance Management Group provides this important coverage as a benefit of membership at no additional cost. The Alliance Management Group General Liability policy provides liability protection for its validly registered players, players participating in tryouts, coaches, affiliate/member clubs, teams and leagues from claims brought by third parties alleging bodily injury, property damage, personal or advertising injury in connection with covered activities. Most venue owners will require this insurance to be in place before a club is allowed to use a facility or fields.

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance (Not For Profit)

D&O insurance protects directors & officers from personal liability associated with their wrongful acts, errors, and omissions in the performance of duties for the Club. Typical D&O claims often allege mismanagement of funds and negligent decisions affecting club members, participants, coaches, officials and others. The policy also provides Employment Practices Liability (EPL) coverage for claims alleging harassment, discrimination or wrongful termination.

CERTIFICATES OF INSURANCE

Certificates of insurance are available from the State Association members of the Alliance Management Group upon request. A certificate may be used if a third party, such as a field owner, school or sponsor, requests proof of general liability coverage, or requires being added to the policy as an "additional insured”.

Should special certificates be needed, a proper request should be made at least two weeks prior to the event. Certificates cannot be post-dated.

Certificates are issued in conjunction with properly sanctioned events. Please use the following contact information for certificate requests:

Iowa State Soccer - Nancy Greenley via email: ngreenley@iowasoccer.org

Kansas State Youth Soccer Association – Chris Duke via email: cduke@kansasyouthsoccer.org

Nebraska State Soccer AssociationRequest certificates online or email director@nebraskastatesoccer.org



REPORT AN INCIDENT

It is important to promptly collect relevant information whenever someone is injured or property is damaged during a sanctioned Alliance Management Group or club event. Doing so is valuable in defending liability claims that may result from the incident, and is also very useful when preparing claim forms resulting from an injury to a participant, spectator, coach, or volunteer.

Incident Report Form

The form should be completed by a Club Official, Coach or Event Director at the time of an accident, injury or other incident occurring during an Alliance Management Group sanctioned event or activity. The completed form is faxed or mailed to American Specialty Insurance. See the form for contact information. If necessary, an accident medical claim form will be provided to the injured participant with instructions for submission to Alliance Management Group’s Participant Accident Insurance provider.

For Directors & Officers Liability claims, please report all information to your local state association as soon as possible.



RISK MANAGEMENT INFORMATION

An injury that doesn't happen needs no treatment. An emergency that doesn't occur requires no response. The best way to stay injury free is to avoid the cause of injury. That requires planning, training, leadership, good judgment, and accepting responsibility—in short, risk management.

We manage risk in almost every aspect of our lives. There is risk involved in getting out of bed in the morning. There are risks in crossing a street, toasting bread, and taking part in sports, but we find ways to minimize these risks and maximize our safety, well-being and enjoyment.

Risk management is so much a part of sports that often we hardly notice we are doing it. Running down the field, parking our cars, shooting on goal – we deal with risk in each and every case.

The only way to eliminate risk completely is to give up the pleasures, challenges, and satisfaction of playing sports. Rather than attempting to do away with it, everyone involved – players, coaches, parents and referees - can manage risk by identifying its sources, understanding its boundaries, and tailoring their behavior to minimize exposure to danger.

Below are ideas to help manage your team/club/league’s risk. A safe playing environment is an enjoyable playing experience.
