Players, Coaches and Officials who are currently registered members of US Lacrosse, and who are in good standing, are covered by the US Lacrosse Insurance Program for the term of their membership. Fan members and International members do not receive insurance coverage as part of their membership benefits.
Be sure to register as an Official when joining US Lacrosse.
US Lacrosse member officials are protected while officiating amateur lacrosse and they are also covered in their duties as Assignors for lacrosse games. In order for the insurance coverages to apply to Assigning duties, Assignors must be a US Lacrosse member official. Under the General Liability policy, coverage for officials is specifically defined as being in force “while officiating in any and all amateur lacrosse activities as long as the appropriate US Lacrosse recognized rules are being enforced.”
Insurance coverage is is often available through membership in a Lacrosse Officials Association (LOA), other national organizations such as National Association of Sports Officials (NASO). You may alos be covered by the State Athletic Association such as GHSA.
Make sure to educate yourself on this important issue.
