Mitta Mitta Canoe Club(Albury Wodonga) Inc members are advised:
Mitta Mitta Canoe Club (Albury Wodonga) Inc carries a public liability insurance policy by our affiliation with Australian Canoe Inc. This policy is to protect the club against any claims by third parties for personal injury (and possibly property damage) arising from negligent acts by the club and its officers and agents.
Acts of negligence by club members involved in various sporting activities of the club are their own responsibility and generally do not constitute a negligent act by the club itself.
A claim could be made against a club member involved in club activities when it is alleged the member was negligent or reckless in his or her actions. Such a claim may not be covered by the club’s public liability policy.
All members should check their own personal and public liability insurance to ensure they have sufficient cover should claims be made against them which are not covered by the club’s public liability insurance.
All club members must obey the rules of any events, including competition rules. Any reckless act or a failure to abide by the rules could result in an individual member being held liable for any personal injury or damage to property. This is particularly so if the action is a reckless failure to comply with the rules and results in injury or damage.
