Because of the inability of some third-party users to obtain insurance on their own, the College is enrolled in the University Risk Management and Insurance Association (URMIA) Sports Camp Insurance Program (SCIP). SCIP is designed to provide the required insurance for users of College facilities through an online purchasing process. As such, coverage may not be available for all sport camp types, since policy exclusions do exist. Use of this program is not a guarantee for insurance. Premium costs are paid by the third party (the party who needs to purchase the insurance). Premium costs are based on the nature of the sports camp, the duration of the camp, overnight accommodations, the number of participants, and the level of risk.
SCIP provides low-cost, best-in-class, sports-specific insurance to camp programs for minors conducted at Ithaca College.
This sports camp insurance program is designed to cover your camp and the college for liability insurance. In addition, Excess Accident Medical coverage is available for participants. Please refer to the policy for details regarding coverage limits.
The following sports are automatically approved in the URMIA Sports Camp Program:
- Cheerleading (without stunts)
- Cross Country
- Field Hockey
- Flag Football
- Non-Contact Football Conditioning
- Golf, Handball
- Hockey (Non-Checking)
- Track and Field

Worker's Compensation insurance is not included in the SCIP program, which can be purchased separately through New York State. This coverage will need to be purchased separately. Ii would cover the coach, anyone the coach hires, as well as volunteers.
