The Park District is requiring the Athletic Associations to purchase insurance.
The Park District Risk Management Agency (PDRMA)* no longer considers the Athletic Associations a Park District program. Therefore, PDRMA will not supply insurance coverage to the Athletic Associations. Each Association can purchase insurance on their own and truly become an independent of the Park District or they could elect to become a program of the Park District in which they would receive insurance coverage.
* PDRMA is the Park District's supplier of insurance through a self-insurance risk pool with approximately 160 other Park Districts, Special Recreation Association and Forest Preserves.
