NIAAA Member Liability Insurance

The NIAAA provides each regular member excess liability coverage for their duties as athletic administrators, athletic directors, coordinators, or supervisors up to $2,000,000. Excess means coverage beyond any liability coverage through member’s employer, and any additional personal liability coverage held. This liability insurance covers the members for claims or lawsuits involving bodily injury of an athlete (spectator or participant) involving negligence charged on the part of the directors of athletics, or property damage to a third party. This liability policy does not cover lawsuits for such claims as discrimination, wrongful suspension of a coach or athlete, harassment, personal dismissal, coaching, teaching or principal duties, or any other claim not involving bodily injury or property damage. Suits for such claims occurring during employment would have to be covered by the employer.

Types of Membership (Fees in Chart Below):

ACTIVE:  Open to all high school athletic administrators, assistant athletic administrators, coordinators of girls’ sports, coordinators of student activities whose responsibilities include athletics, middle school athletic directors, and coordinators of athletics for school systems whose schools are members of the VHSL, independent schools, and middle schools.  Dual Membership – NIAAA/VIAAA Membership.

RETIRED:  Open to any retired member who has been an active member of the association for a minimum of eight years.  


VIAAA LIFETIME ONLY (PRIOR TO MAY 2019):  An option available to any active member or anyone who is qualified for active membership.  This onetime fee is good for the lifetime of the member and automatically converts to allied or retired membership with the status change of the individual regardless of years of service.  (You MUST pay for an NIAAA Membership to receive insurance coverage and any other National Benefits listed above – this specific membership only affords the holder to VIAAA Benefits alone.)  (VIAAA LIFETIME ONLY MEMBERSHIP WAS AVAILABLE PRIOR TO MAY 2019 AND IS NO LONGER AN OPTION FOR MEMBERSHIP.


NIAAA LIFETIME ONLY:  Some members may become an NIAAA Lifetime Member but would still need to pay for an VIAAA Annual Active Membership each year since we are a Dual Membership State.  Fee information is below.
