Legal, Insurance Protection for Sports Officials
One of NASO’s primary functions is to protect sports officials from lawsuits arising from their officiating actions. With NASO, the National Association of Sports Officials, everything you do as an official, umpire or referee — from assigning games, to working as a clinic trainer, to good old fashioned onfield or oncourt officiating — is covered by NASO’s Sports Officials Security (S.O.S.) Program.
NASO’s insurance program is preeminent in the officiating world. You simply will not find a more far reaching and comprehensive insurance package. It covers officials working every game, every sport and at every level. Nobody else does that.
The NASO Sports Officials Security Program (S.O.S.) provides you with vital lifetime insurance protections. And because officials work in an injury-prone, dispute-ridden environment, they need insurance liability protection. The program also provides officials with permanent protections plus defense costs to fill in “gaps” in any officiating coverage already in effect — and it provides you insurance even when you do not have any other coverage at all. No matter how many sports an official works or how many different levels they work, NASO insurance covers them.
