REMINDER: Protect your Players with Cal South Insurance
Playing in Tournaments or Otherwise - You have to play under Cal South cards in order to be covered (travel papers required for non-sanctioned tournaments)
Cal South has gone to great lengths and expense to build a second-to-none Insurance Package in order to help protect our members. However, if you are not playing with a Cal South card at the time of an injury, you will not be covered by our insurance. Players and administrators are covered with Cal South insurance for any Cal South sanctioned tournament. If a tournament has not been sanctioned by us, you must file travel papers in order to receive coverage.
Filing travel papers has never been easier and it's free.
* Other supplemental coverage offered by non-Cal South entities is far inferior to that of Cal South - in fairness to your players, don't get burned, and be sure to do the right thing.
Show Your Appreciation by Nominating Someone You Know for the 2007 Nike Awards!

Grand Hotel on February 17, 2007.
