The coverage will pay on behalf of named insured (Alberta Soccer), and the additional insureds, where applicable, all sums of money which the insureds shall become legally obligated to pay as compensatory damages for actual bodily injuries to participants, spectators, and other members of the public. This also includes property damage the insurer(s) shall become legally obligated to pay.  The policy does not cover defense of criminal code charges.

If you, as an Alberta Soccer Member, are served with a Court-originated statement of claim, you must contact the Alberta Soccer Office immediately. The Insurers will then begin the process of defending you.
