USA Water Ski and Entertainment & Sports Insurance eXperts (ESIX) are pleased to announce the renewal of the USA Water Ski Club Insurance Program for 2017.
Here are a few of the program highlights along with exciting changes for 2017:
The program is optional and available exclusively to USA Water Ski affiliated clubs in good standing.
The program has been designed to dovetail with the USA Water Ski sanctioned event coverage. [Note: The insurance coverage afforded through USA Water Ski as part of sanctioning only applies while a sanctioned event is taking place, and does not provide coverage for your club and its members when the sanctioned event is over or for club activities and exposures which cannot be sanctioned through USA Water Ski. The USA Water Ski Club Insurance Program has been designed to fill this gap.]
This program provides coverage for liability arising out of the club's day-to-day operations and activities that are sponsored, organized and/or supervised by the clubs, but for which sanctioning is not available through USA Water Ski.
This program contemplates coverage for common club activities such as dinner functions, award banquets/ceremonies, club meetings, membership drives and approved fund-raisers, etc.
The program also provides 24-hour coverage for liability associated with club-owned or leased equipment (such as ski jumps, slalom courses, piers/docks, swim platforms, bleachers and other equipment) and the club's maintenance of such equipment.
Clubs will have the ability to purchase Private Lake liability coverage (for club owned or leased lakes where the club is responsible for the entire lake on a 24/7 basis) through the program.
USA Water Ski strongly encourages all of our affiliated clubs to participate in this optional insurance program to ensure that your club has adequate protection outside of sanctioned events.
