In 2022, USA Swimming is switching to a different broker,
Insurance Office of America (IOA), for general
liability and excess liability coverage.
There is a new process for requesting additional insured certificates of insurance. This process, and all other information, is available at www.usaswimming.org/insurance.
USA Swimming is pleased to
announce that we have successfully bound our renewals of general
liability coverage, including sexual molestation coverage, excess
liability coverage and excess accident medical coverage for
As in previous years, this coverage extends to USA Swimming, the USA Swimming Foundation, USA Swimming Local Swimming Committees (LSC) and USA Swimming member clubs.
For the general liability and excess liability coverage, we are switching to a different broker, Insurance Office of America (IOA). IOA is a full-service national insurance agency experienced in providing service to amateur sports organizations such a US Club Soccer, National Governing Bodies such as USA Triathlon and U.S. Masters Swimming, and several professional sports teams in the NFL, NBA and NHL. Learn more here.
Since 2015, IOA has provided the USA Swimming Insurance Marketplace with optional insurance coverages for member clubs. In 2016, IOA launched a Workers’ Compensation program for member clubs, as well as a Directors and Officers Insurance online quoting platform. Also, in 2019, IOA took over the corporate management liability insurance program for USA Swimming.
Even as experienced partners, USA Swimming and IOA want to ensure this transition is as seamless and as easy as possible for you. We invite you to reach out for assistance at any time. Contact details can be found in the insurance packet, accessed below or by visiting www.usaswimming.org/insurance.
Beyond reading the insurance packet, one important change we wish to highlight for you is the new process for requesting additional insured certificates of insurance. IOA requires LSCs and member clubs to request additional insured certificates from IOA directly. This can be accomplished by submitting a form either:
- Online at https://fs22.formsite.com/usaswimming/IOA/index.html or
- By emailing the fully completed IOA-USA Swimming General Liability Certificate Request Form (available on page 5 of the packet) to [email protected].
