A major benefit of affiliation with OASA is access to the range of insurance policies provided by US Adult Soccer (USASA).
USASA provides a carefully designed risk management program which includes insurance coverages for member players, teams, leagues, and state and national organizations. Information on each of these benefits is included below. Additional details can be found on the US Adult Soccer website.
Player Accident Insurance
All registered OASA players are covered, while participating in sanctioned events, by the USASA accident insurance plan. If you are seeking treatment for an injury sustained during a league game, practice, or affiliated tournament, we encourage you to follow the instructions below to open an insurance claim. Please note that unaffiliated activities, such as indoor soccer, are NOT covered.
You can expect to receive a claim notification letter from the insurance company within approximately 3 weeks of claim submission. Once your claim has been opened, you will be able to submit any related bills, receipts for out-of-pocket payments, and/or explanation of benefits statements, directly to the insurance provider for consideration.
If you have any questions about completing the accident claim form, please contact our office.

General Liability Insurance
The general liability insurance plan provides coverage to our leagues, players, coaches, team managers, staff members, referees, and volunteers against claims that arise out of sanctioned OASA events. This coverage can also be extended to the owners and operators of local fields and facilities through the field insurance program.
Many facility owners require the teams who use their fields to provide proof of liability insurance coverage. OASA member leagues and teams can obtain Certificates of Insurance at no additional cost through USASA, thereby increasing their access to quality fields and improving their overall game experience.
To obtain a Certificate of Insurance, leagues or teams should submit a Request for Certificate of Insurance Form to OASA by mail, fax or e-mail. OASA will request the certificate from USASA’s insurance provider, and distribute copies to the requesting party and to any specified field/facility representatives.
Directors and Officers Liability Insurance
Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance is designed to protect your league against claims arising from the negligent acts, errors, or omissions allegedly committed by present or former directors and/or officers of your organization. Individuals are only insured under this policy while acting within their duties as directors or officers.
D&O Insurance is available to OASA affiliated leagues at no cost, however, an annual enrollment form must be filed to ensure benefits. Contact OASA for current enrollment information.
