Personal Accident Insurance

Little Athletics Australia (which includes every affiliated association and centre), provides Personal Accident Insurance cover for all registered Little Athletes, officials and voluntary workers. This cover does not extend to spectators.

Cover for athletes is effective when the athlete is engaged in Little Athletics competitions and training (officially organised and sanctioned by and under the control of the LANSW or a centre); when attending social functions officially organised by and under the control of the LANSW or a centre, and when travelling directly to and from, either of the above.

Cover for officials and voluntary workers is effective when a volunteer or official is actively involved in helping or officiating at a competition conducted by LANSW or a centre and when travelling directly to and from an activity conducted by LANSW or a centre.

It should be noted that anyone who suffers an injury or accident, who is on the field but not officiating/helping, is not covered by this policy.

The following details regarding Personal Accident Insurance should also be noted:

  • An excess of $50 applies to each injury
  • The policy is for reimbursement only. That is, the member must pay the account and then claim reimbursement.
  • The policy does not cover the shortfall between the reimbursement by Medicare and the total cost of the consultation. This shortfall is the responsibility of the injured party.
  • The Medical Benefits Section refers to non-Medicare medical expenses such as ambulance, dental, private hospital and surgical expenses not claimable from Medicare.
  • Medical expenses will only be reimbursed by this policy if they are incurred within 52 weeks of the day of the injury.

Details of any injury sustained at Little Athletics should be reported immediately to an executive member of your centre, so they may forward the necessary forms to LANSW, within 30 days of the accident.
