As a QCSA affiliated Club, the Beaudesert Soccer Club is covered by these policies.
Personal Injury Insurance
It is highly likely that the only element of our insurance cover that we may need to access will relate to personal injury. This cover is defined in the policy as:
“Bodily injury sustained by an insured person whilst actively engaged in playing or practicing for the sport……”
What do you need to do as a Coach or Manager in regard to injuries?
It is the team Coach or Manager’s responsibility to report injuries incurred by players or a coach while playing or practicing. Please decide in each team, whether Coach or Manager will undertake this task throughout the season.
This reporting is done through an on-line form located in the My Club Mate (MCM) database.
The Manager or Coach can access the report form as follows:
- Logon to myClubmate
- Select Injury Report from the menu
- Select Create New Injury Report and fill in the details
- Select Add New Injury Report at bottom right of screen
Use the Injury Report form on myClubmate to report all injuries of any significance. If in doubt, submit a report. If you do need to submit a report, please do so prior to the next match wherever possible, while details of the incident are fresh in your mind.
What cover does the Personal Injury Insurance provide?
Details of the cover can be found on the QCSA home page and can be accessed as follows:
- Logon to QCSA website at: qcsa.org.au
- Select the Information button
- Select the Insurance button from the drop-down menu
This page includes the following attachments:
- Claim Form
- Liability Insurance Certificate
- Personal Injury Insurance Certificate
- Association Policy Cover
It is the Personal Injury Insurance Certificate that provides details of cover. It would be a good idea to print it, broadly familiarise yourself with its contents and carry some copies of it in your folder.
What to do if the reported injury results in claimable expenses?
If as a consequence of an injury, claimable expenses are incurred then access the Claim Form mentioned above on the QCSA website. Discuss this with the adult player or the parent of a junior player and have them fill in the information on Page 1 of the form.
The adult player or parent of a junior player will then be required to arrange completion of any relevant elements in the balance of the form including Doctor or Employer statements.
The completed form should then be submitted to the Club Secretary (email@example.com) for Club endorsement and transmission to the Insurer.
Points to remember
As stated previously, use the Injury Report form on MCM to report all injuries of any significance. If in doubt, submit a report. Remember that most reported injuries will not result in a formal insurance claim, as a consequence of the limitations of the cover.
Familiarise yourself with the broad details of the cover and carry copies with you for the information of injured players or their parents in the case of junior players.
You can go through our website and sign up on-line, or at our sign-on days at the Clubhouse. On the home page, it provides the details of time and dates.

You can complete a Request to Play with a Friend as part of your on-line registration as a formal request to the club to play with one or more of your friends. This facility is mainly aimed at players in the Under 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 age groups.
Wherever possible, players who played at the Club last season are automatically allocated to that same team for the upcoming season. If you have strong views for your child not to play in the same team as last year, the Request to Play with a Friend section can also be submitted to the Club indicating your request for your child to be placed in another team if available.
Please note that due to team size restrictions and other logistical factors, it may not be possible to satisfy all requests.
