Dive Manitoba Membership
Why Do I Need A Membership?
When registering for a diving program through a registered/sanctioned club in Canada, all participants are required to cover a membership fee with Dive Manitoba and Diving Canada. This is not private of diving, this is the same for any organized club based sport in the country.
Being a member with the Provincial organization means that the registrant is receiving a quality program that has been approved by the National Organization.
It is a requirement for all participants to purchase their membership through the Provincial organization as this covers among other things, the expense of insurance.
Insurance is provided not only for accidents which is a medical benefit in case of injury, but also in case of any liability (it protects athletes in the event they are named in a lawsuit as well, for example if a diver were to cause injury to another participant).
There’s no allowance for a diver to participate without insurance coverage; this is a requirement from the facility and a mandate for all our clubs.
Diving Canada has changed to a new registration system which allows not only to understand better the demographics of our membership but also to provide all participants the transparency of the fees they are paying.
Dive Manitoba fee is required only once a year regardless of the number of programs the participant registers for during that competitive year (Sept to Aug).
The membership fee allows the Provincial Associations to ensure that the clubs have qualified coaches and officials for events, that their programs are sanctioned and updated, that coaches are trained in areas like safe sport and that everyone is covered while participating in diving activities.
In summary, every participant is required to become a member of Dive Manitoba if they want to participate with any diving club in the province.
