Sign up for a Canada Snowboard membership and get hooked up with exclusive member benefits
By sanctioning an event or competition, Canada Snowboard assumes all liability risk for the event in question and all individuals involved. In order for Canada Snowboard to protect themselves, the Provincial/ Territorial Snowboard Associations, and all other parties, they must ensure that everyone on course (athletes, coaches, officials, judges, etc) have a current membership as to make sure they fall under the provided liability coverage. There is no opt-out option and Canada Snowboard cannot assume risk for uninsured individuals directly involved.
* Officials will have to register for events they intend to work through the SnowReg Platform as a membership verification method.
* Officials are considered to be at risk since they are working in the elements, working in close proximity to event activity, climbing scaffolding, standing in dangerous areas, etc.
* By purchasing your membership and paying the related fees to CS you will receive liability coverage in any sanctioned activity for the season, access to register for courses or further professional development, and access to the CS Shred Hookups deals.
* Please be sure to purchase/renew your membership early on every season as to avoid any gaps in coverage or arriving at an event without one.
* Exclusive member discounts and product offers though the Canada Snowboard “Shred Hookups”
* General Liability Insurance during Canada Snowboard sanctioned events (training and competitions). NOTE: Does not include supplementary medical insurance (this is called SAIP Insurance and can be purchased separately).
* Liability Example: You’re on your way to the judges tower and when you arrive you put down your board but let go too early and now it’s sliding down and ends up hitting another official in the shin with some speed. This official gets injured and claims the event /the judge liable. As a judge you are covered for situations like this under this insurance.
* NOTE: In order to activate your membership an official needs to also submit an Enhanced Police Information Check which can be obtained through MyBackCheck.
* In order for this document to be considered valid by the governing bodies, this document cannot be older than 3 years. More specifically for this up and coming season, any record produced PAST June 1st, 2017 will be considered expired and not valid.
* Record checks can be used multiple times and will be considered valid as long as the date in which they were produced was ON or BEFORE June 1st, 2017.
