Independent Contractors

General Liability: Are you covered?

If your answer is one of the following, please double-check your membership status and/or take appropriate actions to ensure you protect yourself. Obtaining proper insurance coverage, including Liability Insurance, is the responsibility of each Independent Contractor assigned by Metro Volleyball Officials Association, LLC

"Yes! I am currently registered as an official with..."

  • MSHSL - any sport, liability $2 million per incident/$5 million aggregate Coverage via NFHS
  • PAVO - volleyball, liability $1 million per incident/$5 million aggregate Coverage via PAVO

"I'm not sure...am I covered if I registered with North Country Region for USAV?"

  • Maybe...the normal official's membership covers you for USAV-sanctioned events, but NOT for non-sanctioned events UNLESS you also purchase the optional Extended Coverage for about $7 additional. See the NCR website for more information.

"I'm not a member of any of those organizations...can I get coverage somewhere else?"
