What constitutes an “event?”

An event is a single ultimate activity or program that runs for a specified amount of time and has a single registration. Both a weekend-long tournament and a league that takes place between March and June would be considered a single event.

What does the insurance cover?

The insurance covers all rostered players, coaches and chaperones with current memberships and signed waivers. You can request an insurance certificate for additional insured parties such as field sites. USA Ultimate offers player accident insurance for any player who acquires medical bills from an injury that occurred at a sanctioned event.

USA Ultimate will insure events that last up to six months within one calendar year. After six months, you can renew your sanctioning insurance.

Check out the insurance summary page for specific coverage details.

When are single event memberships valid?
