All affiliated members of Softball WA are afforded insurance under Softball Australia’s National Insurance Program. Insurance is provided on annual basis in-line with the Annual Membership Period (1st October to 30th September each year), upon registering and making payment of the individual registration fee with an affiliated club or association.
For those who play all year round, the individual registration fee will be required to be paid in the first formal competition season (October 2019 to March 2020), however will not be required to be paid in the second formal competition season (April 2020 to September 2020). Those registering for the first time in the second formal competition season (for example; April 2020 to September 2020) and then choose to play in the first formal competition season in the following Annual Membership Period (ie. October 2020 to March 2021), will be required to pay the registration fee upon registering the first time (competition season April 2020 to September 2020) and will also be required to pay the individual registration fee for the October 2020 to March 2021 competition season (given the commencement of a new annual membership period). However, should they play in the April 2021 to September 2021 season, they will not be required to pay the individual registration fee again for that season.
Should an individual be registering in the same formal competition season with two separate affiliated clubs, the individual registration fee will be charged to the ‘Parent’ club and a permit will be required to participate with the ‘second’ (permit) club.
All individual members who are either a player, official (scorer, coach, umpire), off-diamond (volunteer, staff and/or on the Board/Committee of Management) will be covered as long as they are registered with Softball WA through the SportsTG online Registration System or through an alternative method that has been approved by Softball WA.
