USA Field Hockey offers a variety of insurance programs for athletes, clubs, coaches and officials. Learn more about these exclusive member benefits by visiting the appropriate link below.
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.
DIRECTORS & OFFICERS LIABILITY INSURANCE     (Not For Profit)
EPIC Entertainment & Sports offers an optional Directors & Officers Liability (Not For Profit) insurance policy for USA Field Hockey member clubs which can be accessed online 24/7. 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.
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.
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.
