Frequently Asked Questions

1. If our association or club holds a clinic where people attend that are not registered members of FHC is this an issue?

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.”

2. How do we insure our teams when traveling and playing out of country?

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.

3. Does our club need additional insurance to host events where we know individuals playing may not be members of FHC, i.e., out of country participants?

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.

4. What should an association or club do if someone just wishes to try the sport out once or only wish to play on one weekend/year?

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
