Coach License Insurance Information

Coach License Insurance Information

A USA Basketball Coach License includes general liability coverage* to all licensed coaches in good standing through USI Insurance Services. The coach’s license cannot be in suspended, revoked or expired status. This coverage is offered to the coach while performing normal coaching functions. To become effective, the coverage requires the following:

  • Each coach obtain a waiver** from every athlete under the coach’s guidance.

  • Secondary medical coverage should be in place for each athlete under the coach’s guidance. Participant Accident Coverage – also known as a secondary medical coverage covers the athlete when injured during practice or play for their medical bills. The personal medical coverage the participant has will be primary and the Participant Accident they purchase will cover medical bills not covered by the primary coverage. The minimum limit of this coverage to be purchased is $25,000. The general liability policy excludes medical payments and also requires this coverage be in place.

*This coverage does not extend to transportation of athletes. Coaches who transport athletes should obtain coverage separately.

**A sample waiver and release is available within your profile under the resources tab if waivers are not provided through your organization.
