INSURANCE NEWS FOR COACHES

As coaches start to work with their athletes, make sure they follow all guidelines mandated by state and local agencies and the school district. If you have a question on coverage please contact Greg Joly  at 1-800-566-6479.

2020-2021 CHSCA insurance coverage runs from August 1, 2020 to July 31, 2021, so those of you who have not joined for the 2020-2021 membership year are not covered by CHSCA insurance. You can get coverage now by joining the CHSCA which will cover you until July 31, 2021. After that, the 2021-2022 membership year begins and you need to sign up again to be covered from August 1, 2021 to July 31, 2022.
