Members wishing to opt into this insurance policy may do so by contacting the office. In some cases, an application for insurance may be required. The insurance policy is in effect from May 1 of a year to April 30 of the following year.
Each member organization designates who will be insured under their portion of the policy, i.e. athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and under what circumstances they will be covered.
