Clubs must maintain comprehensive general liability insurance with limits of at least $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 annual aggregate for as long as you are a member club with USA Gymnastics. Clubs agree that they will name USA Gymnastics as an additional insured to the insurance policy required above. Upon request of USA Gymnastics, you must provide the insurance policy certificate demonstrating that you have the insurance required by this Agreement. Clubs must notify USA Gymnastics at least 30 days before any cancellation of, or material change to, the required insurance. Failure to maintain the required insurance is grounds to terminate membership with USA Gymnastics.

You will not hire or be associated in any way with persons who are permanently ineligible for membership in USA Gymnastics (a list is available at www.usagym.org/ineligible), or any person who is listed on a federal or state sex-offender registry (a search for which may be conducted at www.nsopw.gov).

All Member Clubs must have a SafeSport policy that is consistent with the USA Gymnastics SafeSport Policy and affirms your commitment to the welfare of gymnastics participants in its organization.

The Member Club’s SafeSport policy must include, at minimum: a description of conduct that will not be tolerated; standards of behavior for staff/volunteers that promote athlete safety; prevention polices to eliminate the opportunity for grooming behaviors; and a process for receiving and handling complaints regarding conduct that violates Member Club.

If requirements are not met, member club will not be granted membership in USA Gymnastics. Without an active membership, clubs may not to participate in any USA Gymnastics sponsored, sanctioned or other activity. USA Gymnastics has the right to audit a member club to determine whether the club is in compliance with this member club membership Agreement or any governing policy. Clubs will be required to promptly provide all necessary information and access to property or personnel requested by USA Gymnastics as part of any such audit. If you do not adhere to the member club Agreement and all governing policies, you will lose membership.
