USA SWIMMING INSURANCE COVERAGE
A BENEFIT OF MEMBERSHIP
USA Swimming offers, as a benefit of membership, insurance coverage to its members and member clubs to include General Liability and Excess Accident Medical coverage. The Insurance Summary and Insurance Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) below provide detailed expanation of the coverages.
Report of Occurrence Online form
USA Swimming has implemented the Online version of the Report of Occurrence form. Submitting the form online is a more efficient way of sending information to USA Swimming. The Report of Occurrence is submitted any time there is an accident or injury during such USA Swimming activities as Sanctioned or Approved swim meets, swimming practices, contracted Swim-a-Thons or approved social events. The online form does require that certain sections, indicated by an asterisk, be completed before it can be submitted. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Illich at (719) 866-3574 or Carol Burch in the Member Services Department at (719) 866-4578 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Upon submission of the completed Report of Occurrence, you will receive an automated email indicating that USA Swimming has received the form. You should save this email as your LSC may require that it be forwarded to your LSC Safety Chair for reporting purposes.
Note: If you are unable to submit the online form at the meet, you may print a draft paper copy, document the necessary details and then you, or someone from your club, will enter the report online as soon as possible. Click here for draft paper copy.
Insurance Certificates for Your Club
As a USA Swimming member club, you have, at no charge to the club, the benefit of General Liability insurance coverage. The terms and limitations are reviewed annually with each policy period renewal. Currently, the policy limits are $1M per occurrence/$2M general aggregate.
Beginning with each new membership year, USA Swimming mails each club an insurance certificate as proof of their insurance coverage.
Many times, a facility will request to be named on the certificate. This is called an “Additional Insured Endorsement." This is a simple process, but is done online through the CertificatesNow website. USA Swimming headquarters does not request this certificate for the club. Remember also, that the certificate is not automatically renewed annually.
