Insurance Requirements

All league representatives submitting and/or approving the sanctioning application must verify that all applicable insurance requirements are met for teams playing in the event. US leagues should check the Insurance section of the WFTDA Member Forum for additional information.

For WFTDA-insured leagues and leagues holding insurance from companies with reciprocal agreements with WFTDA, individual insurance information will display on the Game Details page of the WFTDA Dashboard. Individual insurance can also be verified on the Insurance Verification page.

League Liability Insurance Requirements

  • For games played in the United States, both the host league and the visiting league must show annual proof of approved liability insurance to the WFTDA Insurance Administrator. The WFTDA Sanctioning Committee will not approve a sanctioning application unless both teams have active liability insurance.

Leagues must have coverage valid for roller derby activities for a minimum of US$2 million (some venues may require a higher amount). If you do not hold WFTDA Insurance or a reciprocal plan that can be selected in the WFTDA Dashboard, please contact insurance@wftda.com for approval and further information.

  • For games played outside of the United States, both leagues should verify insurance requirements for the country in which the game is played and verify coverage with their insurance carriers. The WFTDA Sanctioning Committee will not verify liability insurance for these games.

Skater and Skating Official Medical Insurance Requirements

  • For games played in the United States, all Skaters on the approved Charter Roster that will be active at the time of the game must have approved additional medical insurance. All Skating Officials must also have valid additional medical insurance. The WFTDA Sanctioning Committee will not approve a sanctioning application unless all Skaters from both teams have approved additional medical insurance.

All Skaters and Skating Officials must have some form of personal accident and personal liability coverage (personal accident for a minimum of US$10,000/liability for a minimum of US$1 million). Coverage must be valid in the United States, and valid for roller derby activities (many travel policies do not cover roller derby). If you do not hold WFTDA Insurance or a reciprocal plan that can be selected in the WFTDA Dashboard, please contact insurance@wftda.com for approval and further information.

  • For games played outside of the United States, all Skaters and Skating Officials should verify their personal medical insurance covers participation in the sport in the country in which they are skating. The WFTDA Sanctioning Committee will not verify Skater insurance for these games.
