FOOTBALL: “Unnecessary and Excessive” Video

The link below goes to the Youtube video we discussed last night. I HIGHLY recommend you watch it at least twice.

Youtube: Blind-Side Blocks

NOTE: Again, this is NOT a new requirement for us or for OSSAA; this is an experimental interpretation that several states are working on together, most prominently Oregon and Hawaii.

Officiating Liability Insurance Opportunities

Because on-field liability is a huge concern for us, the topic of officiating insurance has come up recently. While our OSSAA membership provides some liability coverage for games we work as part of our NFHS affiliation, it’s only good for games we work that are OSSAA-sanctioned. So college work, men’s leagues/rec leagues, and youth league sports aren’t covered. It’s a good idea to consider other different options.

First, the NASO provides insurance if you register with their organization. A one-year membership is $103.00. For more information, go to the NASO website.

Second, the site provides a liability insurance option with membership in the Amateur Baseball Umpires Association. The membership cost is $55.00 per year. However, you are covered only for amateur baseball and softball games.

Given the increasingly litigious nature of American society, particularly where sports are involved, we hope you will consider some option for insurance.
