Medical and Insurance Information
Medical insurance for injuries (game or training)
An incident report should be completed where a player has been injured during a game or training, and:
1. requires treatment at the ground, or
2. attends a doctor or hospital following the incident
The club requests that anyone who is affected by an injury – whether it be during a game or at training, to complete our standard Injury Report Form (link available in the Trainers section of the website) and return it to The WJFC Secretary. By completing an Injury report form you will allow us to keep track of these incidents and enable us to assist and support you. Team trainers complete injury report forms following an injury during a game.
The Yarra Junior Football League carries medical insurance to assist with costs should a player, official, coach or volunteer need medical treatment as a result of an on-field injury – be it during a game or during training.
If Colbrow Medical staff manage an injury on gameday, a report will be forwarded to YJFL by 9am on the Monday following the game. This report may assist with the documentation requirements for any insurance claim.
