USA FIELD HOCKEY INSURANCE COVERAGE

General Liability Insurance

USA Field Hockey provides this important coverage as a benefit of membership at no additional cost. The USA Field Hockey General Liability policy provides liability protection for its member athletes, clubs, coaches, umpires and volunteers 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 be in place before a club is allowed to use a facility or fields.

Participant Accident Insurance

USA Field Hockey provides Excess Medical and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) coverage for members while participating in sanctioned events and approved activities.

Optional Coverage Available:

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance (Not For Profit)

Directors and Officers Liability insurance is offered on a voluntary basis to all non-profit member clubs meeting the program eligibility requirements. This important coverage is not the same as General Liability. D&O insurance protects club 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 USA Field Hockey upon request. A fee is charged for each certificate issued. 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".

Please click here to access the request form.
Certificates are typically returned within three (3) business days.

Certificate Request forms should be submitted to: Emily Thomas ethomas@usafieldhockey.com



REPORT AN INCIDENT

It is important to promptly collect relevant information whenever someone is injured or property is damaged during a sanctioned USA Field Hockey 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, umpire or volunteer.

Please click here to access the Incident Report form (with instructions).

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 a USA Field Hockey sanctioned event or activity. The completed form is faxed or emailed to USA Field Hockey. 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 USA Field Hockey's Participant Accident Insurance provider.
