Due to health concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19 and in accordance with government guidelines, Basketball BC has elected to suspend all Basketball BC Programs and Sanctioned Activities taking place before April 15th, 2020, at which time we will reassess health advisories and safety concerns. 

As Basketball BC’s insurance coverage applies to Basketball BC program and sanctioned basketball activities only, Basketball BC's insurance coverage of sanctioned basketball actirivities is suspended until further notice.

A Basketball BC Athlete/Coach membership (membership season - April 1 - March 31) includes: 

Sport Liability and Accident Insurance coverage while participating in basketball activities only for the following athletes and coaches:
  • if registered in a Basketball BC program/event or coaching in a Basketball BC program
  • if "registered" (listed on the online roster) on a team which is registered with Basketball BC 
    • ‚ÄčALL team athletes AND coaches MUST be "registered" team members for the insurance coverage to be valid
    • coverage is limited to the time period of team events if only registered for Club Championships (tournament) and/or Metro League (games) 
    • NOTE: Basketball BC’s insurance coverage does not include the high school season of play.  Registered teams are covered for “out of season” play only.    

Sport Liability insurance – covers sanctioned (by Basketball BC) basketball activities only worldwide
Sport Accident Insurance – covers sanctioned (by Basketball BC) basketball activites only in Canada

All insurance is subject to the limitations of the policy.
