OUT OF PROVINCE TRAVEL

For teams wishing to travel outside the province, travel approval is required from your local association and your affiliated association. 

TRAVELLING OUTSIDE OF CANADA

Teams are not covered under the accident policy.  ONLY LIABILITY coverage extends beyond Canada.

Whether it be for tournaments or inter-league play, the team is obligated to ensure that all participants have Out of Country Accident Coverage.

ENSURE your provider specifically covers you for SPORT ACCIDENT.

Many insurance companies offer this and it is not required that you purchase it through our carrier.

Otherwise, travel insurance can now be purchased online from Gallagher Insurance. Details will be sent when travel approval is issued.

Alternatively, teams can have parents sign off to the understanding that the team has not purchased travel medical for the team and that they will be responsible for any treatment sought out of country through whatever personal coverage they have or obtain.
