Does Alliance Membership include USA registration or Insurance?
No, Alliance Fastpitch membership does not include USA Softball membership.
If a team would like to register with USA Softball and/or purchase USA Softball insurance then the team needs to reach out to their Local USA Softball Association HERE.
Does the Alliance Membership include coach background screening through USA Softball?
No. If a coach would like to purchase a USA Softball background screening, then the coach needs to reach out to his/her Local USA Softball Association.
However, a background screening through Players Health is included in Alliance Membership for coaches.
What if I already have Insurance through USA Softball or an additional insurance?
Insurance is an included membership benefit with your individual Alliance Membership, as well as many additional membership benefits associated with Alliance Membership. This will allow you to play in the majority of tournaments within League schedules and will allow you the coverage you need for the AFCS and AFON.
If you have already purchased additional team insurance from another association, this will not affect your Alliance Membership.
How long will it take to get my COI?
Please allow 1-2 business days.
Who do I contact if I have questions about my insurance through my Alliance membership?
