This means North American based skaters who travel abroad will have accident medical insurance coverage when they participate in roller derby activities, anywhere in the world. No need to buy additional accident medical insurance to cover you out of country!

The WFTDA is proud to offer insurance coverage to adult and junior flat and banked track leagues operating in North America. Non-North American leagues and skaters visiting the U.S. may also purchase WFTDA Insurance. Available coverage options include general liability, alcohol liability, Accident Medical (previously known as Personal Accident) insurance for North American residents competing abroad.
Participants and leagues electing this coverage must comply with the WFTDA Risk Management Guidelines and age requirements.
WFTDA Insurance coverage includes:
- General liability coverage for $2 million, per league
- Excess liability coverage for $10 million, aggregate, per league
- Personal Accident coverage:$2,500 deductible for skaters with primary insurance$7,500 deductible for skaters without primary insurance $10,000 maximum
The WFTDA strongly recommends that skaters also carry their own primary medical insurance. Accident Medical coverage (previously known as Personal Accident) through WFTDA Insurance is intended to supplement primary medical coverage, NOT replace it.
Accident Medical coverage is available at a cost of $75 per person for Member League, Apprentice League, and MRDA skaters; $80 for non-member league skaters; and $40 per person for juniors, annually. General liability coverage may be purchased for $300 for Member, Apprentice, and MRDA leagues; $250 for junior leagues; and $350 for non-member leagues. The paperwork is minimal and there are no other insurance fees—no sanction fees, no charter fees, no late fees, no transfer fees! Alcohol liability coverage is also available for an additional $300 fee. Leagues are provided with up to ten certificates of insurance at no cost. Additional certificates may be purchased for $5 per certificate.
