Once you are a registered member, you become insured and covered under Rugby Canada’s insurance policy for the season. This includes Sports Liability Insurance, Sport Accident Insurance, Provincial Excess Medical Coverage, and Travel Coverage while on sanctioned Tours.
Under the insurance program, the activities that are covered include sanctioned or authorized activities, such as games, practices, tournaments, camps, events, and tours. Tours require a separate sanctioning application to access the Travel Coverage in the insurance program.
In BC, we play Rugby all year round and there are two different registration seasons to choose from:
- August 1, 2021-August 31, 2022 (Southwest BC registration season)
- January 1, 2021-April 30, 2022 (Interior registration season)
To access insurance, every individual must register for Membership with a Club. Insurance is valid starting from August 1st of a new season and is activated from the Member’s date of purchase and expires on August 31st of the following year. As a Member, if you have multiple roles with your Club (player, Coach, manager, etc.), you must be registered in all these categories to be insured for those activities.
