We officials are required to have liability insurance. Two options for insurance are the NFHS Officials Association and the National Association of Sports Officials (NASO). Both are excellent organizations with great benefits, including insurance coverage.
- The NFHS Officials Association membership is $40.00 ($35.00 if you join online). To sign up for or to get more information on the NFHS Officials Association, go to http://www.nfhs.org/. To order through the mail and pay by check, you will have to download the order form here.
- NASO is the world’s largest organization for sports officials at every level and all sports. NASO membership usually costs $116, but may be available for less if you enter the promotion code M93ABTN on the signup page. I don’t know if the discount code still works, but it’s worth a shot! If that code doesn’t work for you, code M2NASON should work and save you $10. NASO includes the monthly Referee magazine. To sign up for NASO, go to http://www.naso.org/.
The insurance coverage from both NFHS and NASO covers practically all sports at practically all levels.
IMPORTANT: The secretary-treasurer will be collecting proof of insurance coverage. Please make a photocopy of your NFHS or NASO membership card or confirmation email and bring it to our next meeting. You may also make a scan of your proof of insurance and email it to the secretary-treasurer.
