Request for Insurance for Sanctioned Events

Paddle America Clubs and Affiliate Organizations:


The ACA will issue a certificate of insurance, evidencing coverage to all Paddle America Clubs and Affiliate Organizations and their event organizers in good membership standing for their events. 


The ACA's insurance may cover third parties associated with an event (ex. sponsors, land owners, etc.) by naming them as "additional insureds."  Complete the form below to submit a request for a certificate of insurance for your event.  Only one event per form may be submitted. You will be prompted to enter additional insured information on the next page and will be able to pay the appropriate fees online when you are done.


Certificate requests made less than ten (10) days prior to the date needed will incur an additional rush fee of $25.00.  All fields on this form must be completed.  Please answer n/a when not applicable.

Rivers rated Class III and above require a detailed Safety Plan as per ACA Risk Management Guidelines. Events on Class III+ water must submit all necessary paperwork at least 14 days prior to the event.

As the ACA Member/Event Organizer in charge of this event, acting as an agent of the Organization detailed above, I hereby agree that the event will be conducted in accordance with all ACA requirements, Risk Management, and all other rules, guidelines, and conditions established by the ACA. I have read and fully understand the sanctioning requirements established by the ACA, I have personally inspected the event site(s) and I attest to the fact that such site(s) are appropriate for use in this event and free of undue hazards.
