The Pacific Coast Soccer Referees (PCSR) recently have taken advantage of NASO's group membership program. The program entitles an association a break in the cost of an annual membership, plus NASO's unparalleled supplemental liability insurance coverage, Referee magazine, educational materials, discounts with major officiating suppliers and advocacy on behalf of sports officials.
The Board of Directors for the newly formed PCSR made it a priority that all 42 of its members are covered by NASO insurance. The association serves an adult men's and co-ed soccer league in the Redondo Beach, Calif., are near Los Angeles.
"We did it for the coverage for the referes and for us, but also have found out that it's a pretty unique marketing tool," said Bob Foster, president of the PCSR. The league that we're affiliated with is thrilled that it doesn't have any insurance issues with the referees and that we already came with our own insurance. That was a key in the league's decision-making process to go with us vs. other groups."
