Play Slo-Pitch Insurance

Bramslammers is registered with Play Slo-Pitch (the result of the merger of SPO and SPN). They will provide us with things like scorebooks, access to prizes and awards, invitations to their Ontario Championships, and liability and secondary accident and health insurance coverage for our players.

Each individual player will need to register themselves as a MEMBER of Play Slo-Pitch.

You will need to login to Play Slo-Pitch’s Member Registration System, accept a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims and Indemnity Agreement, and then pay an annual Member Fee ($15.00 + HST = $16.95). The Member Fee will provide you with proper insurance coverage for participation in ANY Play Slo-Pitch-sanctioned league, tournament or event. This means that it does not matter how many Play Slo-Pitch-sanctioned teams you play on, you register just once and can play with any Play Slo-Pitch team for the season (subject, of course, to any ratings or classification restrictions). You only need ONE (1) Profile in the Play Slo-Pitch system. Each Member must have a unique email address.

If you need help with the registration process, Play Slo-Pitch staff are available Monday to Friday, between 9:00am to 4:30pm, and can be reached by phoning (905) 646-7773.

No players will be allowed to play in any games unless they are registered and paid with Play Slo-Pitch. You can register at https://playslopitch.com/.
