Insurance

Softball Ontario's umpire insurance program details are outlined in the registration booklet you received upon registration. Over the years, Softball Ontario has received a number of questions regarding this program. The following highlights the common questions:

  • The accident insurance portion of this program is secondary coverage to any other

Government, Individual or other type of coverage in force at the time of the accident. For example, if you have accident insurance at work, you would apply there first and then apply to Softball Ontario.

  • This is not a loss of wage policy 
  • If you purchased both exams in 2017, your insurance coverage is for officiating organized fast pitch and organized slo-pitch games (including exhibition).
  • If you purchased only the fast pitch exam, your insurance coverage is for officiating organized fast pitch games only (including exhibition). (See note below) 
  • If you purchased only the slo-pitch exam in 2017, your insurance coverage is for officiating organized slo-pitch games only (including exhibition). (See note below)
  • If you purchased FP Local only in 2017, your insurance coverage is for officiating organized fast pitch games at the local level (including exhibition and local tournaments). (See note below)
  • A registered Softball Ontario umpire will still be covered under our policy even if they are working with a non-registered umpire
  • Your insurance coverage starts upon receipt of your registration fee (or two weeks after we receive your registration fee if paying by regular cheque) and ends April 1, 2018.
  • Passing or even writing the annual exam does not affect your insurance coverage

Note: If after registering you wish to purchase the second exam and thereby have insurance coverage for both games, please feel free to forward a cheque, money order or visa number (including expiry date and signature) for $10.00. If registered you may purchase the second exam at any time up until August 31, 2017 for Fast Pitch application and for Slo-Pitch application.
