To our USA Swimming Member Clubs:
Our staff continues to work with our insurer on covered activities, and they have agreed to provide insurance for the following covered remote dryland activity.
Policy Purpose: The USA Swimming Operational Risk Team has advocated for accommodations relative to Dry Land training to help club leadership and coaches maintain training regimens during periods of public facility closure. The key modification to the program is the addition of virtual dryland training included in the definition of ‘Covered Activities’ under the participant accident insurance program.
Insurance applicability: The updated verbiage going into effect reads as follows (Bolding added for emphasis):
Covered activities include Virtual dryland training/instruction under the direct supervision of a USA Swimming member coach. The training must involve live online streaming/real-time instruction or training via the internet. The instructor should be able to communicate visually and verbally with the participants at all times during instruction. Coverage does not extend to recorded videos/sessions where there is no live or real-time interaction, and the recordings are accessible by someone other than your clients/members.
