Membership Information

New Provincial Sports Organizations/Municipal Sport Councils/Clubs Associate Membership

Sports Officials Canada (SOC) now offers a bulk registration program for our iMembership Program with lots of bonus features.  We have also initiated a special Associate membership program directed towards Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO) and Municipal Sport Councils (MSC).  This new PSO/MSC Associate membership will provide access to the activities of SOC including the annual Professional Development Conference at a reduced rate.  Currently SOC has three levels of membership:  National Sport Organization (Voting Member), Associate Membership (Non-Voting Member) and two categories of iMembership (Individual Membership) – Basic & Enhanced (includes the SOC "gap" insurance program).

Whether you choose to join as an Associate Member or not, PSOs, Sport Councils, clubs and leagues will now be able to bulk register their individual officials at a prorated discount based on the number you register:  
< 50               $10.00     per member
   50 - 75          $9.75     per member
   76 - 125        $9.50      per member    
   126 - 200      $9.25      per member
> 200              $9.00      per member

Do Referees Face Liability for Their Decisions in Sports Contests?

The doctrine of assumption of risk is a familiar one in the sports-torts arena. The general rule is that an athlete assumes the normal, commonly appreciated risks associated with playing his or her particular sport. It cannot be used to protect against reckless or intentional conduct or concealed or unreasonably increased risks, however. For example, a pitcher lobbing fastballs from behind a pitching screen nonetheless accepts the risk that his teammate batting could hit a ball right back at him. A wrestler assumes the risk that he could acquire a skin disease from close contact with another wrestler. A softball player in a municipal league assumes the risk of injury from slipping on a concrete pathway adjacent to the outfield when running to catch a ball. While the assumption of risk doctrine is a frequent subject of litigation relating to injured athletes and their attempts to hold the venue owner—which is often a school district—responsible, there is a paucity of cases related to athletes seeking to hold officials governing their match, game, or meet responsible for their injuries.
