Dear Registered Participant,

In these unprecedented times, we have all been forced to adopt new measures and modes of practice in order to return to the field of play. One of these measures is the need for additional liability insurance. Having full liability insurance to cover COVID-19 related cases, ensures all our participants, including coaches, board directors and our other hundreds of valued volunteers can return in confidence.

Our thanks to our provincial members for adopting the unified position and standing together as a community to purchase of this insurance. The cost for this peace of mind is $8 per participant. This should be considered as a non-refundable COVID-surcharge which will provide cover for 1 full year. It is a one-off charge which is being introduced much like the other COVID surcharges we are currently all paying for across service and other industries.

Other important information:

COVID-19 Surcharge will become effective September 1, 2020 for all members registering a
membership during the 2020-21 season.

COVID-19 Coverage will be provided for all registered members between now and the end of the
current season (August 31, 2020) without an associated surcharge or fee.

With thanks for your understanding and support. Wishing you a safe and enjoyable return to the field of play.

Sincerely,
Susan Ahrens
Chief Executive Officer
Field Hockey Canada
