Every team that participates in even one tournament needs to purchase team insurance. Simply put, none of softball's sanctioning bodies will allow a team to participate that doesn't have team insurance. USSSA’s insurance carrier is K&K. Teams do not have to purchase their insurance through K&K, but it’s an easy and quick process to do through the USSSA website. The USSSA policy provides both liability and accident coverage for a full year, running from August 1 to July 31 or from January 1 to December 31. If your organization or in house program consists of six teams or more you are also eligible for a 25-30% discount on insurance. Just contact the SYO if you think your organization is eligible for this discount. In order to purchase team insurance from K&K, teams will need to be registered through USSSA and will need to provide K&K with their sanction number upon application.

Once your team has purchased insurance, whether it was from K&K or another carrier with minimum $1 million liability coverage, you should immediately send a copy of your policy to the SYO so it can be placed on file.
