  2. Sorry Bulldog, but you are misinformed about the school covering all aspects of your team. You need to ask your AD for an update.. As for you never having a card, that's a personal choice not to. Have you heard of "murphy's Law"? Also proof of insurance for your child in School covers just that "to be in School". depending on districts they don't add the sports coverage (More $$$), but every student must have some sort of insurance. Liability is the issue. You don't need it until you need it. also, most do not have any idea they are not covered. If you are sued in your school district and you were in the wrong, guess what? they do not have to represent you. with USAW they do.
  3. As a High school coach myself ( a few years ago) That was the cost of having a filler program. Back then the HS coach ran everything. Hell, it's awesome to see paid and unpaid youth coaches. I was the one that petitioned the school board to have paid coaches for our MS and Youth programs in all of Hardin County. Our HS did fundraisers With the youth and MS programs, you can make some good money for all programs. As a rule, our youth program has always paid a participation fee (card included). The only athletes that are not to pay this fee per our AD was HS
  4. TRUMP changed the Law. and for a $15 card I would say is a good choice. I'm really not sure how this cost is ruining our sport. The benefits to membership are many.
  5. A secondary becomes a primary if they do no have insurance.

    You should check with Jon Carr for those question. Jon.carr@kentuckyusawrestling.org
  7. You don't need coverage to and from practice and events. Parents take them to and fro, just like going to the grocery store. They are covered even with their parents. tell Mark Hitchens he didn't need it when he got into an accident on the way home from a tournament a few years ago and ended up in the hospital along with family members. Its a secondary insurance but it helps to pay your medical bills. And by law are not all people in the USA required to have medical insurance? No, they do not. your primary Insurance if you have it only pays 80% (if that) You pay the rest. So a secondary is good to have.
  8. They can join the Cincinnati Youth League and be covered under them, when they participate in CYL events. Edited 14 hours ago by grappler-of-old 1. Just wondering if the Cincinnati Youth League covers travel to and from practice and events? 2.Covers your place of practice and all coaches, volunteers, and athletes from liability? 3.covers your facility from all liability during practice, scrimmages, and events?

  10. You are correct, but only in Jefferson county because they have absorbed the cost of liability Insurance . All other counties do not think this way. That is why we do not have a wrestling team at every MS. We have to petition the school board to have a school team or club.. Even with a paid position, we still must have separate liability insurance for our team/club and school. I really wish the KHSAA Commissioner would come out with a policy statement to back up what i am saying. I am quoting him from a board meeting in the past when they were deciding on either or not to absorb all MS organizations in KY under KHSAA. MS and Youth are not covered under KHSAA catastrophic liability insurance. Mr Tackett has met with the KY AD and given them this information. That is why mostly all MS wrestling program Schools and clubs require a charter and liability insurance from USAW. KY USAW is the major reason we have an independent organization in our state and able to establish our own bylaws..
  11. Thinking that your program falls under the school liability insurance program is incorrect. KHSAA has liability insurance for HS sports only, and only when in regular season. USAW covers the lack of coverage "during and after" the season to give the most insurance possible all year long. 2017-2018 USAW Insuranceinfo.pdf
