    • Report an Incident

      Club Officials, Coaches, or Event Directors should complete the Incident Report form at the time of the occurrence during a covered activity, as this ensures accuracy in reporting and may help with any liability claims that could arise from the incident. Once the form is completed, the applicable individual should fax or email the report to USA Field Hockey. The form provides more information on how to submit.

      If necessary, USA Field Hockey will provide an Accident Medical Claim form to the injured participant with instructions for submission to USA Field Hockey's Participant Accident Insurance provider.

    • Participant Accident Insurance

      USA Field Hockey Participant Accident Insurance provides Excess Accident Medical and Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) benefits to members who are injured while participating in USA Field Hockey Sanctioned Events.  

      Coverage is only applicable for injury during USA Field Hockey sanctioned events, and does not extend to pre-existing conditions or injuries in unsanctioned events. If an accidental bodily injury results in an Insured Person requiring medical care and treatment within 90 days of the accident, the policy pays the reasonable medical charges of necessary medical services up to the benefit amount. 

      Medical expenses must be incurred within two (2) years of the date of accident. The accident medical coverage is secondary to any other available medical/health insurance and is subject to a $500.00 deductible per claim.
