All Star Programs can purchase their own private insurance or the group insurance through BCSC. Scholastic programs typically have insurance through their school. Please contact your school administrator to confirm.
If you wish to purchase BCSC insurance there are requirements set by BCSC to help ensure premiums are kept low.
While coaches can be credentialed in Canada at the age of 16, head Coaches of teams must be a minimum age of 18 years and must be BCSC certified to the level of their team. There must be a minimum of 1 staff member in the gym when classes are taking place with valid, up-to-date First Aid-CPR certification during any practices or training. Coaches are required to upload First Aid – CPR Certificates when they register online in Cheer-reg. Please see coaches requirements for more information.
To purchase insurance you will need to complete the application form below. Athletes need to be registered in Cheer-Reg with both BCSC and Cheer Canada to qualify for insurance coverage. A program found negligent for purposely withholding registration of athletes in avoidance of paying their insurance will be fined $500.
BCSC reserves the right to revoke insurance coverage for members found in bad standing. This may include, but is not limited to failure to follow the rules outlined in the qualifications to obtain insurance.
Please ensure all of your athletes have filled out your own waiver approved by the insurance company as well as the BCSC waiver included in the registration with BCSC on Cheer-Reg.
