- Must be USSSA sanctioned before applying with NCAA.
- All participants must be USSSA members.
USSSA insurance is only applicable to events that have been sanctioned by the USSSA.
If the event is obtaining insurance through the USSSA instead of a traditional insurance carrier, the event operator will need complete the USSSA sanctioning process prior to applying for NCAA certification. Applications submitted claiming USSSA sanctioning and therefore utilizing USSSA insurance but that do not appear on the list of USSSA sanctioned events at the time the certification staff processes the NCAA application will be denied. Further, if an operator submits USSSA insurance and does not appear on the USSSA Web site as an USSSA sanctioned event, the insurance information submitted will be considered fraudulent by the NCAA and the operator will be assessed the penalties outlined in the Provision of False and Misleading Information Policy.
Operators who submit USSSA insurance will need to confirm in the notes section of the application that all participants in the event are "official" registered members of the USSSA as teams and participants that are not official USSSA members are not covered under the USSSA policy. The NCAA will inform the USSSA to anticipate applications from participating teams/participants.
You must actually submit the third party certificate of insurance form provided by the USSSA to the NCAA; a copy of your USSSA membership information will not suffice.
An insurance program specific for NCAA-certified events has been developed by the USSSA. Here are the highlights:
- A tournaments director may purchase 2M liability and secondary medical for all participants for $500.00.
- Smaller tournaments can purchase 2M liability for $150.00 and secondary medical for $7.00 a team.
