Player Injury Insurance
Club Insurance Cover
The club holds Personal Injury Insurance with JLT Sport through our affiliation with Work safe Victorian Country Football League.
In addition to the level of insurance cover that is automatically supplied through your registration, , the club has undertaken to increase this cover to the higher "Gold" level which provides for a 90% rebate with a $50 excess. The automatic coverage provides for an amount of $1,000,000 if a player is made quadriplegic or paraplegic through a football injury. These upgrades give our players the best possible protection against serious injury and, although quite a costly exercise, is done in the interests of player welfare. This coverage applies to all senior and junior teams.
The club does NOT have personal Income Insurance. Players are responsible for getting their own Personal Income Insurance. Please contact Roger Blacksell for more info on Personal Income Insurance.

• An official match or training session.
