Roller Derby Insurance
Roller Derby Insurance Coverage
Anyone on who will be skates, including all Skaters and Referees, are required to have valid Roller Derby Insurance as well provincial health care coverage (OHIP).
Renegade Derby Dames uses Roller Derby Canada (RDC) for our roller derby coverage. RDC provides information and membership that incorporates insurance for all forms of derby – flat track, banked track, women’s, men’s, co-ed and junior derby across Canada.
They provide accident insurance that covers skaters for accidents while skating at league practices and during games. This insurance is a secondary insurance that pays for injuries over and above your provincial health care. The RDC accident coverage will cover you in Canada as long as you have Canadian healthcare. It also includes worldwide coverage if your league is playing in a game, attending a bootcamp, or attending Rollercon.
The skating insurance coverage is for one year, starting from when you purchase the insurance.
• Regular skaters pay $55 per year.
• Dedicated skating officials have a special membership cost of $30 per year. This option is not for officials who also play roller derby.
• Roller Derby 101 Skaters can buy Apprenticeship memberships for $30 and are available for new junior or senior skaters who are trying out the sport or taking a new skater program. This membership is for 4 months only and if you are still skating once it has expired, you would then sign up for a regular membership at $55 for one year. *Please note:* Apprentice skaters are not covered to skate in games.
