VAFA Insurance

The Victorian Amateur Football Association in conjunction with JLT Sport, the league’s insurance broker and risk adviser, has arranged insurance coverage for all affiliated member clubs, officials, coaches, umpires, volunteer workers and players.

The dedicated JLT Sport website provides important information about your insurance program. Click here to go directly to the website.

We ask club officials to take the time to read the policy documents and information flyers and encourage all club members to do the same. It is most important that all clubs are aware of the coverage provided and the procedure to follow in the event of a claim, prior to an incident occurring. Failure to be aware of the extent of coverage and procedures to follow often leads to unnecessary delays and, in some cases, disappointment.

The level of cover and the competitive costs have been achieved to benefit all clubs, coaches and individual members who are part of, or looking to be part of, this Program. Therefore, it is extremely important that everyone supports this initiative.

The program provides competitively broad protection across the following areas:

  • Public & Products Liability (including Professional Indemnity)
  • Club Management Liability
  • Personal Injury
  • Asset Protection – Not included in the invoice for 2019 with clubs provided the option to opt in – you may do this by contacting Jamie Taylor direct at JLT

If you would like to know more about Asset Protection, please click here.

All affiliated clubs are afforded the base Bronze level of personal injury cover. The Victorian Amateur Football Association encourages all participants to take out private health insurance in addition to this policy. Clubs also have an opportunity to purchase increased coverage above the base Bronze level on behalf of all their teams. Visit the JLT Sport website to find out more about upgrading your clubs’ cover.
