Welcome Jockeys!

You have long deserved to be recognized and treated like your peers in the NFL, MLB and NBA! What do they all have in common? A professional Players Association to serve their interests and needs.

The National Jockey Association (NJA) has been formed so that you, the Jockey, can belong to an Association that is not in litigation. By becoming a NJA member, you now have direct access to a comprehensive Welfare Benefits plan, at a discounted rate for you and your family that covers you 24/7 worldwide, even while racing! To take advantage of these benefits, you must be a member of the National Jockey Association (NJA).

How Did We Do It?

Access to a true Welfare Benefits plan requires membership in the NJA. We formed this entity as an association exclusively for jockeys, planned as a not-for-profit organization called the National Jockey Association (NJA). On behalf of the NJA, we then entered into an exclusive Collective Bargaining Agreement with an existing National Union. The critical issue here was our ability to negotiate an agreement on behalf of our NJA membership that would address their current health & welfare benefit needs, while not restricting or obligating them in any way that would cause adverse affects for our members with racetracks or horse owners. This agreement simply provided a way to deliver the most comprehensive, affordable plan for all jockeys, ever! Most importantly, as a member of the NJA, coverage is available for you and your entire family without requiring evidence of insurability!
