Fast Pitch Nation – Insurance Advertisement
We would like to address an email advertisement for organizations to begin purchasing insurance via Fast Pitch Nation. USA Softball of Massachusetts feels we need to address many incorrect/false statements made by Fast pitch Nation regarding USA Softball Registration/Insurance policies.
USA Softball of Massachusetts in no way is discouraging organizations from purchasing additional insurance but we want all our members to understand they are 100% covered when teams are individually registered with USA Softball to play in any event sanctioned (or not) by USA Softball.
FPN - Just getting an additional insured certificate for the tournament host or the town where you practice should be easy. Too often it is not. Plus, additional insured certificates should be valid for the full term of your policy and not for just a single event which is the way USA Softball's insurance provider has been issuing certificates, which force the team to go back time after time to get certificates.
FPN - Our Team Insurance program offers industry-standard team insurance valid for ANY organization's events such as PlayFPN, USSSA, USA Softball, Triple Crown, Alliance, plus practices, scrimmages, etc.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact our area commissioners Walter Babcock (email@example.com), Peter Fernandes (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our state commissioner Phil McElroy (email@example.com).
Welcome to the the website for USA Softball of Massachusetts. We are the only Softball organization in the state of Massachusetts affiliated with the national governing body of Softball: USA Softball.
