Most Sporting Associations are seasonal, therefore, they have both a primary sport and a secondary sport for the off season. The only sport covered under this policy is BASEBALL. If you are interested in obtaining coverage for any other sporting event, please contact the Provincial Association of that sport to be covered. The cost of going through the Provincial Association for coverage is minimal compared to the cost of setting up a separate policy for each participating club.
