The purpose of this document is to supply players with critical information on the process, entitlements and expectations in relation to submitting a sports injury claim through the club's insurance arrangement.
To begin the process, you will need to visit the below website and 'Make a Claim'.

Once complete, the form will need to be submitted to Echelon Australia (Marsh Insurance use Echelon for these sports injury claims)
Once submitted, you will receive an email firstname.lastname@example.org that will provide you with an Online Reference Number and will have attached 3 documents:
When the Club Declaration and Physician Declaration forms are completed scan them and email them back email@example.com and make reference in the email to the Online Reference Number you were provided with.
You will receive an email from Echelon acknowledging your claim. This email will provide you with your claim number that you need to reference in any further correspondence when dealing with your claim.
