All Be ACTIVE competitions restrict players from participating under the age of 18. However, if a guardian is on site and has provided approval, they may play but will be void from any insurance claim (Player accident insurance coverage).
All registered players (over the age of 18) are covered by Sports Insurance coverage. For policy details please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. For a member to make an insurance claim, they must have reported the incident at the time of injury to venue staff/officials with an injury report completed at the time. Failure to do so voids the right to claim through the insurance policy.
Please note that Be Active Melbourne provides a minimum level of cover and is not comprehensive. We encourage all participants to take out Private Health, Life & Income Protection in accordance to their own individual circumstances. Players that have previously been involved in a serious injury, are encouraged to seek professional advice from a GP prior to participating. Re-injury of previous injury may/may not be covered by the Be Active Melbourne third party accident insurance.
Be ACTIVE Melbourne does not offer refunds for Sport Competitions. We may offer a credit for a future season. We reserve the right to charge a $100 Admin fee for any team that wishes to withdraw from a competition once draws have been sent out.
