Volleyball has been around a long time, but did you know it was originally called “Mintonette” and was designed to be a combination of basketball, baseball, tennis, and handball? It’s true! William G. Morgan, a graduate of Springfield College of the YMCA, invented the game way back in 1895 by taking a tennis net and raising it 6 feet, 6 inches off the ground. Mr. Morgan might not like the name change, but we bet if he were around today he would still enjoy watching people of all ages play his game, no matter what they called it.
From the beach to the school gym to the back yard, people love to play volleyball. A very popular team sport, volleyball clubs abound across the nation and the world. If you oversee a volleyball club, you need to have the right insurance policy in place to protect your players, spectators, managers, officials, and owners.
Here is a breakdown of the types of insurance to consider for your sports club or organization:
The most common insurance covered by club sports like soccer is general liability insurance. This insurance provides coverage for claims and lawsuits alleging bodily injury or property damage including serious injury or death of a soccer player, coach, volunteer or spectator, or property damage to a facility or location rented or occupied by a soccer club or organization. It provides protection from claims of bodily injury, property damage, and litigation costs associated with these claims. Up to $1,000,000 of coverage per occurrence is available, with a general aggregate of up to $5,000,000 obtainable.
It is an unfortunate truth that injuries do happen when participating in youth and adult amateur sports and activities. Primary and excess accident medical insurance helps pay for out of pocket medical costs resulting from an accident or injury occurring to a participant, coach, volunteer, manager or other official during a practice, game, or travel to an event. Accident medical insurance can help alleviate a serious financial burden brought about by unforeseen medical bills resulting from an injury.
Spectator & Premise Liability
This type of insurance provides protection for all spectators of the policy holder involving bodily injuries and accidents on site, property damage to the venue while under the organization’s control, and the litigation costs to defend against such claims Spectator & Premise Liability insurance is an extra layer of protection for active club sports.
