A math tournament seems like a fairly benign activity, but any mathlete will tell you that the probability of an accident increases when a group of people gathers.

Math tournaments are held to help students develop a passion for math and increase confidence in their skills. However, adding people to the mix increases your risk of financial loss if someone brings a claim against you, the event organizer. Balance your books with Math Tournament Insurance before an accident happens.

What is Math Tournament Insurance?

Math Tournament Insurance is a type of special event insurance covering those who organize or host math tournaments. Whether the event is held on a school campus or at some other venue, event organizers face the brunt of financial loss if something goes wrong at a math tournament.

If Math Tournament Insurance were an equation, it’d look a little like this:

  • 1 part coverage for accidents like slip-and-falls +
  • 1 part coverage for personal and advertising injury +
  • 1 part coverage for damage to someone’s personal property =
  • Freedom from worry over costly claims.

What does Math Tournament Insurance cover?

Just as a student needs to fully understand a problem to solve it, you should understand how Math Tournament coverage can protect you against the financial consequences resulting from claims made against you. Your Math Tournament Insurance provides investigation services and a legal defense of claims and, if needed, payment for the settlement of claims. This is important because even false or fraudulent claims can break the bank.

Math Tournament Insurance can cover you against claims made by participants, spectators, or venue owners stemming from:

band aid

Third-party, non-employee bodily injury

If a participant’s mom is rushing to her seat, falls, and gets hurt, you may be liable for her injuries.

Personal and advertising injury

Tournaments can bring out competitiveness. Say one of your staff makes a joke about another school’s team. You could be held liable for slander or libel.
