Massachusetts Youth Soccer insurance coverage applies ONLY to Massachusetts Youth Soccer related and/or sanctioned events and DOES NOT apply to non-soccer events or events that are not specifically sanctioned by Massachusetts Youth Soccer.
If your team is going to be training indoors during the late fall/winter months you MUST affiliate all your players, coaches and administrators in order for the Massachusetts Youth Soccer insurance protections to apply. These protections will apply regardless of the facility in which you train.
League Play Indoors
If your team is playing in a league organized and run by an indoor facility there is NO insurance protection through Massachusetts Youth Soccer insurance policies.
Tournament Play Indoors
If an indoor facility runs a tournament and wants protection under Massachusetts Youth Soccer insurance policies, the tournament MUST be sanctioned by Massachusettss Youth Soccer. If the tournament is sanctioned, Massachusetts Youth Soccer insurance protection would apply for that event and that event ONLY. In order for an event at an indoor facility to be sanctioned by Massachusetts Youth Soccer, all players, coaches and administrators on ALL teams MUST be duly affiliated and the indoor facility must complete the necessary application.
Additional / Independent Insurance Coverage
Each team, club and facility is encouraged and is free to obtain insurance coverage in some form for soccer events that are not sanctioned by Massachusetts Youth Soccer. Massachusetts Youth Soccer’s insurance company will extend such insurance coverage at a discounted rate. This discounted rate is only available to those individuals, teams and organizations affiliated with Mass Youth Soccer. Any such insurance coverage is, in every respect, INDEPENDENT of Massachusetts Youth Soccer and NO inference that Massachusetts Youth Soccer is assuming any role, responsibility or obligation to provide insurance coverage for non-sanctioned soccer events should be at no time drawn.
Parties interested in more information on such independent insurance coverage can contact Tara Petricca at firstname.lastname@example.org.
