Membership in AFL Canada comes with its benefits! Insurance is one of them.
General Liability and Sports Accident Policies
If you have been involved in an accident while playing, umpiring, coaching or volunteering at an AFL Canada sanctioned event, you may be entitled to certain coverage. IMPORTANT NOTE: this insurance coverage does not pay any benefits that are available under any government health insurance plan, whether the Insured is enrolled in such a plan or not. This means that players not covered by plans like OHIP, AHCIP, MSP, MSI, etc. will need to cover the expenses usually paid by these plans out of pocket. You may choose to purchase supplemental coverage from an insurer of your choice, and consider whether or not contact sports are covered under such a plan.
Additionally, as a volunteer member of the AFL Canada Board of Directors, you may be covered for certain errors and omissions in the course of your duties.
