GENERAL LIABILITY

Millions of young athletes participate in sports across America on a daily basis.

While undeniably a noble pursuit, there is an inherent risk involved in any athletic endeavor either as an athlete, coach, spectator, parent or event operator.

In today's litigious society, even small mishaps can result in large lawsuits. That's why general liability insurance is essential.

General Liability coverage is provided for properly registered athletes, non-athletes (i.e. coaches), people affiliated with the AAU through its members and clubs covering claims due to damage or injury caused by negligence or acts of omission during performance of duties or conducting business (i.e. running an event or hosting a practice). 

Program may include waiver of subrogation if facility requires the member club to have such coverage.  Member club must request said coverage by submitting a copy of written agreement when applying for the certificate of insurance and pay the appropriate administrative fee.  

For waiver of subrogation (coverage) to be in force, there must be a written facility contract executed prior to the date of the occurrence.
