SASK SPORT/TEAM SASK/SASK GAMES UPDATES

 

INSURANCE CLARIFICATIONS RELATED TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Clubs and Coaches registered with Swim Sask have been asked to follow guidelines with respect to virtual training. These restrictions have been modified to facilitate online training for registered swimmers through the COVID-19 pandemic. The key point is that the virtual training must be led by registered coaches and all swimmers participating must be registered members. In addition, participants/parents must sign an Acknowledgment of Risk, Year-Round/Age Group Winter Clubs should have received the link from your club earlier this week.

 

Please see the Online Training Endorsement document from the Insurance company. If you are using a 3rd party provider then you need to ensure that this 3rd party provider has liability insurance and that the liability insurance includes that they can deliver online training. If your club is sending out dryland training for athletes to do on their own, then they need to understand that they are doing so voluntarily and that they are not covered by Sport Accident insurance in this instance. (It is no different than if they go outside and play and hurt themselves).

 

The insurance company has also provided some exclusions right now due to COVID-19. Please see document titled: Contagion Exclusion Endorsement.
