Hockey Canada has a program of General Liability and Accidental Medical Treatment insurance which are described in the Hockey Canada booklet “Safety Requires Teamwork”. A reading of this booklet is recommended. It should be noted that the insurance provides coverage for registered players and Team Officials for certain limited medical/dental and disability claims. It is not a comprehensive medical or disability policy and will not pay complete medical expenses or loss of wages in the event of a disabling injury.
In the event of an injury, a Hockey Canada Injury Report must be completed and forwarded to the Hockey Alberta Office. The Hockey Canada Injury Report is available by clicking here. Hockey Canada Injury Reports must be submitted within 90 days of the date of injury in order for a claim for expenses to be made. The Hockey Canada Insurance program is the secondary insurer – this means that a claim must be submitted first to any other plan available through an employer or independent provider.
The report, along with any attachments should be mailed to Hockey Alberta at the following address: Hockey Alberta, 100 College Blvd. Box 5005, Red Deer, AB T4N 5H5 Tel (403) 342-6777

Casino Volunteer Application
The NWCAA qualifies to run a Casino approximately every 18 months. In order to do this, we need parent volunteers to man the various positions which calls for approximately 35 people to step forward and volunteer their time.
Every team is expected to provide the names of six individuals who will be a part of the volunteer team running the Casino. Some of the volunteer positions require a back ground check for which a Casino Volunteer/Worker Application Form is required.
For those in financial need, financial assistance is available through the Calgary Flames Even Strength Program.
