AYSO's Golf Cart Safety Recommendations
The use of golf carts at AYSO events is covered under AYSO's General Liability insurance for injuries or damaged caused by registered, trained and certified volunteers.
Only volunteers who are over 18 years old, are registered, trained and/or certified and have a current driver's license and insurance should be allowed to operate the golf cart.
Regions should create a list of volunteers that are allowed to use the golf cart and make sure that all golf cart users are trained to properly operate the cart per the manufacturer's instructions. Golf carts should never be left unlocked or unattended.
AYSO recommends that Regions use the manufacturer's instructions to create a training document to be used during golf cart instruction. This document should be signed and dated by the instructor and the person receiving the training, and should be collected by the Safety Director.
The replacement of golf carts due to theft or loss is NOT covered under AYSO's General Liability insurance. For that coverage you would need to purchase the Regional Equipment Policy, which can be found here.
