Safety Policies, Forms, & Insurance
Why does AYSO not provide liability coverage for lawsuits arising out of player versus player situations?
Because injuries arising out of playing the sport of soccer or other activities associated with soccer such as practices, games, pre- and post- game activities, related non-athletic activities are considered part of the sport and excluded from our General Liability coverage. AYSO and its insurance carrier insures for activities related to its operations, not private incidents between two players or volunteers.
General Liability – provides coverage for the organization, its directors, officers, field owners, employees and volunteers for injuries or damages the organization had become legally obligated to pay, including applicable legal costs for defense.
General Liability Claims
To file a claim or seek liability coverage, contact the Risk Management/Insurance Department at the AYSO National Office, 1-800-872-2976, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be prepared to provide supporting documentation and the completed AYSO Incident Report Form (see Incident Reporting Chapter).
Certificates of Insurance
Agreements for permission to use fields or facilities, whether or not a fee is charged, often require proof of insurance coverage or a Certificate of Insurance.
