All REGISTERED athletes, coaches, volunteers and officials of Canoe Kayak BC are automatically covered for accident/injury while participating in any activities sanctioned by the Club under CKBC’s insurance policy. This includes: all practices on or off the water, any training or activities associated with the club. Travel to and from Club meetings. It also includes driving of any coach boat and safety boats. As well as driving any vehicle for the purpose of relocating equipment, trailering or athlete driving.
NCKC acts as an agent for CKBC’s insurance provider. The insurance is active from the time CKBC registration is signed by the member (or parent/guardian if under 19 years).
