Insurance Coverage for USYS Registered Teams

For Non-USYS Sanctioned Events

There is confusion regarding whether PAGS teams registered through EPYSA have insurance coverage when participating in US Club Soccer sanctioned events.  The language contained in the EPYSA statement on insuracne coverage is provided below.  The language clearly provides coverage for "Scheduled games, team practices, or sponsored activities, provided they are under the direct supervision of a team official; or sanctioned local, regional or national tournaments, as a member of a contestant team." regardless of the scantioning body.  Currently, EPYSA has chosen to interpret this as meaning only USYS sanctioned events and, as such, will not provide proof of insurance to teams who have requested such proof.  Therefore, as of today, if you are a USYS registered team and wish to particpate in a USCS sanctioned tournament you must contact USCS to purchase insurace coverage at a cost of $35.   USCS may be reached by phone at 843-429-0006 or via email at admin@usclubsoccer.org  Questions regarding EPYSA's stanceshould be directed to the Executive Director at 215-657-7727.
