Two major roller sports organizations have entered into an historic agreement regarding insurance reciprocity for each other’s events. Starting today, the insurance policies managed by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and USA Roller Sports (USARS), which both provide coverage for roller derby leagues in the United States, are reciprocal.
As a result of this new agreement, USARS members can now be covered by their USARS insurance at WFTDA-insured events, and WFTDA policy holders can be covered by their WFTDA insurance at USARS-sanctioned events. Ending the need for single-event passes effectively eliminates a significant cost for roller derby leagues.
Now, with the completion of some basic enrollment paperwork, both groups of insureds can be covered at the East Coast Derby Extravaganza in Philadelphia, PA, June 27-29, and RollerCon 2009, in Las Vegas, NV, July 29-August 2. Event organizers will provide participants with details about accessing the new reciprocity benefit.
