Member Liability Insurance
The NIAAA provides each regular member excess liability coverage for their duties as athletic administrators, athletic directors, coordinators or supervisors up to $2,000,000. Excess means coverage beyond any liability coverage through member’s employer, and any additional personal liability coverage held. This liability insurance covers the members for claims or lawsuits involving bodily injury of an athlete (spectator or participant) involving negligence charged on the part of the directors of athletics, or property damage to a third party. This liability policy does not cover lawsuits for such claims as discrimination, wrongful suspension of a coach or athlete, harassment, personal dismissal, coaching, teaching or principal duties, or any other claim not involving bodily injury or property damage. Suits for such claims occurring during the course of employment would have to be covered by the employer.
