AWWF General Insurance.

This year in conjunction with Willis Insurance we have again negotiated a very comprehensive group of policies to cover you the members including Public Liability for members and affiliated clubs, Personal Accident for sanctioned events, Travel for competing Teams and other administrative related policies. You will find a summary of our 2014-15 Insurance coverage by clicking here.


Please note. Personal accident Insurance is only available to members whilst participating in  AWWF sanctioned events  eg Tournaments, sanctioned training camps etc. This does not cover unsanctioned training. (eg Thursday night or Sunday morning for example Club, State or Division  training). For a Ski School to be sanctioned, it must be organised at National or State Level, held over two or more consecutive days unless under special circumstances when a National Division Director may approve on a case by case basis.


 Come and try skiers and “club” skiers are not covered for Personal accident Insurance. This section provides cover for members aged between 5 and 75 years of age.



Sanction Request

 The AWWF continues to work with our Insurers in reducing our overall Insurance costs and to comply the AWWF has strict new guidelines in place to ensure compliance with the Sanctioning of all water ski activities from all Divisions of the AWWF. The key changes to the policy are as listed.

  • Every Water Ski and Wakeboard event must be sanctioned using the Divisional National calendars or for adhoc events  the AWWF Sanction and Risk Management form on the AWWF web site.
  • This year we have introduced a pre event or “match day”check list to be completed on site as close to the event as possibe  by the  event organiser or a delegated officer.
  • A copy of the full sanction process can be found listed below and in the AWWF policy book.
