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 by the USASA accident insurance policy while participating in sanctioned events. 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.
The insurance is a supplemental accident policy which works either in tandem with a player’s insurance or can be used in place of it. As is the case with most insurance, it does not cover at 100%. There are limitations, sub-limits and exclusions. On the US Adult Soccer website, it reads:
The plans are in place to fill gaps, holes, deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance on participant’s health policy. This is a secondary coverage which means it pays after your health policy pays.If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
The accident insurance is intended to act as a secondary policy to a member’s primary insurance. If no primary insurance exists this then your USASA plan becomes the primary policy.
The coverage, however, is based on the allowances of the plan. For additional information, you are welcome to have the player contact our office or check out the insurance page of our website for additional information.
How to Open A Claim
- Submit a completed Special Risk Accident Claim Form (including the signed authorization page) to the OASA office within 90 days of the incident.
Claims can be submitted in person, by mail, through e-mail (as an attachment) or by fax.

- OASA will then review the claim and verify current registration before signing off as the State Verification Officer and forwarding the claim to USASA.
- USASA will contact the insurance company to open your claim.
You can expect to receive a claim notification letter from the insurance company within approximately 3-6 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.

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.
