Please do not hesitate to call All Sport Insurance or e-mail Susan Ahrens at Field Hockey Canada (email@example.com) should you require assistance. Full instructions for completing the form can be found on the claim form. Be aware that:
This is not a problem if your event is sanctioned by the national/provincial sport governing body. For the clubs this would be handled via your provincial association and for the provincial associations by the national association.
It is understood and agreed that the insurance provided by the policy with respect to the playing or taking part in practicing or training for sports shall apply only to sanctioned events as described below:
“Sanctioned events shall mean all games, competitions or sports demonstrations run by you or by member clubs authorized by you including related training at sites of events and club premises. Authorization can either be by way of a written procedure manual or specific agreement in writing by your authorized executives.”
A roster including the full names of the players, date of departure, and date of return can be submitted to Field Hockey Canada to get a quote from SBC Insurance.
All Sport Insurance can provide additional insurance to host a special event – depending on the size of the event, venue, etc., an additional premium may be charged. It would be in the best interests of the association or club hosting the event to ask the participating out of country teams for proof of insurance.
If the event is sanctioned and the participants just want to try the sport out this should not be a problem re: insurance coverage – similar to clinics. For individuals that only wish to participate in one event per year or less it might be best to recommend a FHC associate membership fee to them or establish an association or club fee for these participants that involves insurance coverage but the costs are lower, e.g., non-league playing membership
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is the custodian of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP); the set of rules that govern anti-doping in Canada. The CADP consists of several components such as in- and out-of-competition testing, education, medical exemptions, and the consequences of doping violations. The CADP is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code and all international standards.
Field Hockey Canada (FHC) has adopted the CADP which means that you can be confident that you are part of a world-class anti-doping program that is designed to protect athletes’ rights and ensure a level playing field. FHC’s anti-doping policy reflects and supports the CADP. Click here to read more.
While the CCES administers anti-doping for the Canadian sport community, you may also be subject to the rules of your international federation. Learn more about FIH’s anti-doping policies and procedures.
The CCES recommends that athletes take the following actions to ensure they don’t commit an inadvertent anti-doping rule violation:
