EXTENDED COVERAGE PROGRAM (AB)
The Extended Coverage (AB) coverage program was developed to extend coverage for AAU members while participating in events hosted by organizations that are not member clubs of the AAU. Coverage in this program is provided for properly registered athletes or non-athletes for events in the United States of America (including its territories and possessions) Puerto Rico, and Canada.
To have extended coverage (AB), the following criteria applies:
- For team competitions, the entire competing team and coach (non-athlete) must be AAU extended coverage (AB) members.
- For individual competitions, each competing individual must be an AAU extended coverage (AB) member and must be supervised by an AAU extended coverage (AB) registered coach.
- The competition must be formally scheduled, supervised and conducted by a recognized sport association, civic organization or school (and not be a member of the AAU).
- If you are a member of the AAU in the extended coverage (AB) category and conduct an event that is not sanctioned by the AAU, you forfeit your rights of extended coverage (AB), for that event only.
Benefits of the AB program are:
- Sports Accident
- General Liability
- Certificates of Insurance
Who is insured?
- Member clubs/teams
- Amateur Athletic Union of the United States, Inc.
When does AB coverage take effect?
- Coverage takes effect when AAU registered members in the extended coverage (AB) category are participating in events hosted by organizations that are not member clubs of the AAU.
- Example: All of Jim’s Basketball Team members are registered AAU extended coverage (AB) members. Jims Basketball Team is participating in an event hosted by the local Park and Recreation organization. The Park and Recreation organization is not a member club of the AAU nor is the event sanctioned by the AAU. Jim’s Basketball Team has coverage in this situation by being AAU extended coverage (AB) members.
