RE: 2017-2018 AGF Insurance Fees

 

On behalf of the Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF), I would like to apologize for the length of time it was taken the Federation to review and determine the insurance rates associated with the 2017-2018 season.  As we are all aware, insurance is an important issue in the sport of Gymnastics and AGF is continually researching and monitoring the conditions, Provincially and Nationally.

After a very lengthy internal review and extensive negotiations with Toole Peete and the various insurance underwriters, the AGF Board unanimously approve the following increase.  Effective July 1, 2017 and applicable throughout the 2017-2018 season (Summer/Fall/Winter/Spring) individuals registered with AGF in the Developmental and General Gymnastics Streams will be required to pay a $5.60 insurance fee (an increase of .80 cents).

The insurance fees associated with athletes registered in the Provincial and Elite/National Streams will be remaining at $7.50.  The rates associated with birthday parties and ‘drop ins’ will also stay the same.

Please also remember that the DAS Legal Advice Gymnastics Clubs Program remains in place.  The program will offer your Board of Directors UNLIMITED access to legal advice from 8:00 am to midnight, seven days a week.  Please contact the AGF office should you require additional information on the program.

Again, on behalf of the Federation, I thank you for your patience while the Board conducted their review.

Please contact the AGF office should you have questions or require additional information.

 

Sincerely,

Katie Biberdorf

Chairperson, Alberta Gymnastics Federation
