Nonmember teaching assistants of certified members may apply for coverage under this policy. It is necessary for a certified member to submit the names of his/her assistants, plus $125 per assistant, to the USPTA World Headquarters. The nonmember assistant must be 18 years or older and the certified member holding the policy must be on the premises while that assistant is teaching, otherwise the nonmember coverage is void. Clubs that are USPTA corporate members in good standing may sponsor their non-USPTA tennis teachers and pay the same fees ($125 each), for their coverage. It should be very clear, however, that this coverage is non-refundable and does not cover the club or the sponsoring certified member against any liability claims, but only the insured nonmember(s).
The USPTA policy does not provide club coverage and the club must secure its own liability insurance in its usual manner. The nonmember insurance fee is neither prorated nor transferable, and will cover the nonmember through the term of the policy year (from Dec. 31 to Dec. 31 of the next year). When adding nonmember assistants, the effective date for their coverage is the date the letter and proper payment to the USPTA World Headquarters are received by the USPTA Insurance Department. Reapplication must be made by the USPTA sponsor for the nonmember insuree each policy year in a timely fashion, since no notices or invoices will be sent as a reminder.
