Play with confidence, you’re covered through affiliated sport!
Bundaberg Touch Association is a current affiliate of Central Queensland Touch who is in turn affiliated with Queensland Touch Association (QTA) and Touch Football Australia (TFA).
TFA is the only Touch Football national organisation recognised by the Australian Sports Commission and the Australian Government and as such is deemed the National Sporting Organisation (NSO).
As a national sporting body, TFA has a structured model of unified management and is charged with leading in overall Touch Football’s leadership, management, administration and sport development. Your member fees contribute to this not-for-profit pursuit, to continue to grow the sport, build its profile and ensure it is a quality experience for those who are involved.
In protecting all of the affiliated members within Australia, TFA manages, negotiates, and controls annually the National Insurance Scheme.
Through this process, affiliated associations have the security and understanding that the national body will ensure they have continuous protection and coverage for the individuals who participate, the officials that control the game, the administrators and committee members who conduct competitions and finally all the volunteers who work at varying levels within the affiliated structure of the sport.
TFA manages changes to the policy to maintain currency with industry requirements. In addition, claims are managed so large increases related to increase claims are evened out across the scheme ensuring stability with insurance related costs for local associations.
To review the coverage available, we recommend all individuals to consider their personal circumstance and assess if additional external coverage is required outside of what is offered as part of membership to the affiliated structure of TFA.
To view policy related information, please visit the ‘Insurance’ section of the TFA website:
