How To Affiliate

 Due to the Covid19 situation, it has taken Badminton Ontario a little more time to renew their insurance policy this time. They have finally reached an agreement with the insurance company and now you are able to update your affiliation with YDBA for the 2020-21 season. 

Why affiliate? Your club should affiliate because all clubs get $5M general liability and $2M Error & Ommissions/Directors & Officers insurance at a reasonable rate. This year’s insurance runs from August 2020 to June 2021. 

If you affiliate, you also become a member of Badminton Ontario. If you join as a competitive club your members can buy a player’s card to compete in provincial sanctioned tournaments. All clubs will be listed on YDBA and Badminton Ontario’s website and you can keep up to date on the latest district and provincial news and developments in badminton. 


Some reminders about affiliation 

Please remember that a club can only choose one level of affiliation. If you have players in your club that are going to compete in Badminton Ontario sanctioned events, you must register as a competitive club in order for them to buy a player’s card. 

If you are a recreational club and want to buy Sport Accident Insurance, you must buy it for all of your members. Any club that buys this insurance must provide a list of the members names you purchased it for and their gender.

As a competitive club, you have the option of buying Sport Accident for your players that do not buy a player’s card. Members that buy a player’s card through Badminton Ontario are automatically covered. This year Errors & Omissions/Directors & Officer’s Coverage is included when you affiliate.
