The USA Field Hockey Commercial General Liability policy provides coverage at no additional cost as a benefit of the club membership. This coverage protects against liability claims brought by third parties alleging bodily injury, property damage, personal or advertising injury arising out of premises, operations, products, and completed operations of the club in connection with Covered Activities. For example, a shot breaks a window in the facility your club practices in.

Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance is offered for purchase on a voluntary basis to all Member Clubs*. This important coverage is not the same as General Liability. D&O Insurance protects club directors and 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.

*Please note in order to be insured all members of the Member Club must also be members of USA Field Hockey. This includes all coaches.

Who is covered?

Member Clubs and associations of USA Field Hockey enrolled in this program. 

Note: All participants in this program must be USA Field Hockey Member Clubs in good standing.

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 covered activity. The completed form should be faxed or emailed to USA Field Hockey. See the form for contact information.
