Why Insurance?

Because of your operations, or actions, you are open or possible suit from Third Parties.  You may not be liable but you will need to be defended in court.  A Liability policy pays for this defense as well as any costs found against you.  Legal fees can be very expensive and this can be an affordable way to have them covered.  This policy covers your legal liability for bodily injury to or damage to property of others such as spectators, passers-by, property owners and others resulting from your activities. In addition your legal liability for injury to participants is covered.

For Clubs – Directors & Officers Insurance

Often referred to as ‘D&O’, our Clubs are required to have Directors & Officers Insurance as part of the Club Policy. Athletics Alberta offers our Clubs D&O as part of our overall commercial general liability insurance. Clubs must OPT IN to receive this benefit by emailing
