Certificates of Insurance (COI)

A Certificate of Insurance or proof of liability coverage, is usually required by property owners such as school districts, cities and their recreation departments and private businesses before they grant a Use Permit to any organization requesting permission to use their fields or facilities. Because AYSO's insurance policies renew on July 1, of each year. New Certificates of Insurance will be issued each year on July 1. Requests can be made prior to the renewal period, but Certificates will only be emailed to the Holder as of July 1st each year.
