Insurance

Youth Membership:

All US Club Soccer-registered youth players, coaches and staff members are covered by an accident insurance policy. The current policy also covers approved international travel.

Adult Membership:

All US Club Soccer-registered adult players, coaches and staff members are covered by an accident insurance policy. US Club Soccer’s member clubs, teams and leagues, and its registered players and staff members, are also insured for US Club Soccer adult activities by a general liability policy. Adult members who register with US Club Soccer receive insurance coverage through the United States Adult Soccer Association. For detailed information, click here.

Certificate of Insurance:

Request for Certificate of Insurance (#C012) – multiple | single
If your club or facility is in need of a Certificate of Insurance (COI), complete the appropriate form and submit it to your regional administrator. Please allow a minimum of three business days for processing. Youth membership COIs are valid for a calendar year and are issued for the upcoming year beginning in December. Adult membership COIs are valid September 1 through August 31.

Fundraiser Certificate of Liability Coverage:
Submit the Request for Fundraiser Certificate of Liability Coverage Form (#IN001). US Club Soccer reviews coverage for fundraisers by examining certificate requests on an individual basis.

Supplemental Tournament Insurance:

Supplemental tournament insurance is offered to hosts of US Club Soccer-sanctioned tournaments in order to obtain liability and accident insurance coverage for all non-US Club Soccer participating teams. (Teams using US Club Soccer passcards already have insurance coverage.) This simplifies attendance for teams, especially if a number of non-US Club Soccer teams are not able to obtain insurance from their state association or other U.S. Soccer member organization. To do so, please complete and follow the instructions on the form below.

For additional information related to attending a tournament, please visit the Attending a Tournament page. This includes information regarding a US Club Soccer member attending a non-US Club Soccer-sanctioned tournament, and a non-member attending a US Club Soccer-sanctioned tournament.

Optional Insurance & Services:

IOA has created an online marketplace – available at www.usclubsoccermarketplace.com – to provide US Club Soccer members with a simplified way to obtain other insurance coverages and related benefits, both personally and professionally, including:

  • Health Insurance, including major medical, short-term medical, medicare supplement, senior medical insurance, HSA health plans, and group medical (ACA enrollment period runs through Dec. 15)
  • Dental/Vision Insurance
  • Property and Casualty Insurance, including auto, homeowners, renters, powersports and pet
  • Supplemental Insurance, including critical illness and accident
  • Club Benefits and Insurance, including travel, D&O, workers compensation, crime, equipment and event cancellation, and payroll services
  • Life Insurance, including term life and senior/final expense life
  • Warranties, via AmTrust, including protection/service plans for mobile phones, electronic devices and home warranties.

Quotes and policies from various companies can also be retrieved by IOA through the marketplace, giving users the ability to easily discern the best options for them.

IOA recommends that a club considers purchasing the following insurance coverages: Directors & Officers, Employment Practices Liability, Event Cancellation, Supplemental Tournament, Camp, Special Event, Workers Compensation and Property Insurance for equipment. If a club has a physical office space, IOA also recommends a Business Owners Package Policy.
