Since 1990 it has been mandatory that all Full members of Sport PEI have insurance coverage. Thus, Sport PEI offers its member organizations a comprehensive and affordable accident and liability insurance package.
Members wishing to opt into this insurance policy may do so by contacting the office. In some cases, an application for insurance may be required. The insurance policy is in effect from May 1 of a year to April 30 of the following year.
Each member organization designates who will be insured under their portion of the policy, i.e. athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, and under what circumstances they will be covered.
The insurance premium is based on the number of individuals insured and may vary from sport to sport depending on the claims history of the organization and associated risks.
