USSA Insurance Policy
FIS and USSA rules require that competitors be covered by valid and sufficient accident insurance. The racer must carry proof of this insurance and have it available at each race or camp so that prompt medical care can be obtained, if ever needed.
We have read and understood the Insurance Policy statement. The insurance policy listed on the Medical Release meets the requirements of the USSA Insurance Policy and will be maintained in force while the competitor is involved in a USSA, Northern/Western Region camp or team or while participating in any event on a USSA quota.
