Sport Athlete Insurance (SAIP) is an accident insurance policy that is specifically designed to make extended medical coverage available and affordable for you to participate in snowboard training and competition. It covers costs associated with incurring an accident while participating in a sanctioned training or competition activity. There are many costs included that aren’t traditionally covered by your standard Provincial/Territorial health care coverage. For full details about SAIP, click here.
SAIP is purchased online after purchasing a basic athlete membership, or alternatively if you become a recreational/training athlete, advanced athlete or coach. (Contact our office for these memberships.)
In order to be covered by SAIP, you must be participating in a Canada Snowboard-sanctioned training or competition activity, wearing a certified helmet, and under the supervision of a licensed coach. You must also possess a current Territorial Health Card.
