The administrator of your club's SportsEngine account can view all of the club's submissions (who completed their forms) as well as export an excel spreadsheet of each of the JVA forms that have been submitted by your members with all the data entered.
1. CLICK HERE to access Player Form page.
2. Drop down to your club name.
3. To Print: If looking for excel spreadsheet, click "Export CSV" at the top. If needing to print PDF of actual forms, select "Download JVA Autoform".
5 years in case a claim needs to be made. We suggest creating a waiver folder and go through each year to get rid of 5 year old forms.
The forms that are required are:
Clubs that are securing JVA insurance for their members, may file the required forms online with SportsEngine. There is no cost to your club, coaches or players to file forms online. Click here to get the link to your specific club's player forms for online submission (the two forms are combined together to simplify the process). The 2nd tab at the top of the page titled, "Member Clubs: Player forms submission links" has each club's link listed. Direct your families to that link to submit their forms. Instructions for parents are on that page. There are also instructions for Club Directors/Administrators to activate their ability to generate reports on all the submissions from their club.
Apply for coverage for the number of teams that you are sure you will have. You can always add teams at a later date.
Reminder: The club insurance for your teams covers your coaches, club administrative staff and tryouts as well.
Yes, JVA will cover the cost of your officials' insurance coverage. If an official is injured, you need to complete a "JVA Incident Report". You also need to find out if the official is registered with PAVO and include that information on the incident report.
Each coach will need to submit the "JVA Coaches' Event Sign in Form" at team check-in. This document lets the Tournament Director know that all of the team's JVA insurance forms have been completed and submitted online at allplayers.com, or that the coach has a copy on hand of all of the players' forms. The "JVA Coaches' Event Sign in Form" should be attached to the team roster and kept on file. You do not need to collect or file any of the insurance forms, only the "JVA Coaches' Event Sign in Form".
The forms that are required are:
The participating teams may file the forms electronically: Prior to your event, request the clubs to create a group for their team on SportsEngine and then direct their parents to use this site to submit their insurance forms online. There are no fees to do this.
Provide a hard copy of the forms listed above to all coaches and team reps. Inform them that it will be coaches' responsibility to make sure that they have, in their possession, the required forms. The coach or team rep will need to collect the liability and medical forms (USAV Medical Form is also acceptable) from each of their players. At the time of team check-in, the coach or team rep only needs to turn in the JVA Coaches' Event Sign-in Form to the Tournament Director.
Be sure that you have a supply of JVA Incident Reports on hand. If any injury occurs, even if minor:
- Secure a copy of the JVA Release and Medical Form and JVA Participant Release of Liability for your file OR ascertain that the forms exist online within your SportsEngine account.
- The Head Coach or Tournament Director should complete a JVA Incident Report at the time the injury occurs and turn in to the tournament director. A parent should never complete the "Incident Report", it will not be accepted by the insurance company as a legal record.
- If the injury is minor simply keep the JVA Incident Report Form on file. If the injury is serious, email copies of the Incident Report, Player Medical Release, and Participant Release of Liability to Lisa Wielebnicki at email@example.com or drop in the mail to:
1414 Underwood Ave, #400
Milwaukee, WI 53213
If the family needs to file a claim, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of the JVA Medical Claim Form. Lisa will insure that the JVA Incident Report and Player Forms have been filed. The family should follow the instructions for submission included on the form.
Note: If the event is not a JVA insured event, the insurance company will NOT cover any expenses.
The facility owner needs to identify insurance carriers, or an agent, familiar with the risks we face running a sports facility and volleyball club. There are several insurance companies that specialize in providing the coverage we need; such as participant and spectator liability, abuse and molestation, coaches professional, and accident medical to name a few. Once those companies are identified, applications should be submitted to no less than three of these companies to obtain the most competitive price. I can identify those companies, and they would vary depending on the state the facility is located in. Contact me directly for more information.

JVA Background Screening
The JVA requires that member junior volleyball clubs adhere to our Background Screening Policy.
JVA has secured the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) to process our member background screens.
All individuals, 18 years of age or older, involved in any capacity with a JVA member club must be screened: Club directors, club administrators, tournament directors, team reps, coaches, chaperones, and trainers who register, affiliate and/or participate with a junior volleyball club or team. Tournament Directors are required to insure that any official 18 or older who intends to work a junior sanctioned event will also be screened (with the exception of a junior player).
Every individual required to submit to a Background Screening must log into NCSI, complete, sign and date the Consent and Waiver Release Form.
