Jacka-Liquori Agency has been providing insurance to the paddlesport industry for more than 25 years. We are the program administrators for Paddlesport Risk Management, LLC; the United States Dragon Boat Federation; and the International Cultural Exchange Association, and prior broker and administrator of the United States Canoe Association (USCA) for 20 years. Our agency principals are both avid canoeists who have, and continue to participate in marathon canoe racing, outrigger racing and dragon boat racing nationwide. Larry Liquori served as President of the USCA for 4 years, has served as a delegate from New York to the USCA for more than 20 years, and is the current President of the New York Division of the USCA.
Besides providing insurance for canoe, kayak, rowing, outrigger, dragon boat and stand up paddle board clubs and racing events, we can also provide insurance coverage for boats and equipment, non-profit Directors & Officers Liability for paddling clubs and associations, outfitters & guides. The organizations mentioned above each have General Commercial Liability and Accident/Medical policies that their member clubs or individuals can access to provide coverage for annual club activities, competitive racing events, festivals, training camps, and cruises. The key factor is that you are required to be a member of their organization to access the coverage.
Coverage also includes spectators, volunteers, participants, coaches, team members for on water and off water activities as approved by the insurance carriers. Below are contacts details for each organization and their affiliates and applications for each insurance program as well as for other paddlesport related insurance coverage.
