Canadian Paintball Field Insurance

Hey Guys,

I know there are some canadian field owners on here so i thought I would ask which insurance providers you use. We are pricing a couple, but the lowest age we can get is 10 years of age. We would like to get down to 8 year olds if possible. We will be using 50 cal for players under 12, so I think an 8 year old can handle it as demonstrated at gatsplat. (We toured his amazing facility this past weekend)

Thanks for any help, or contacts

Hey,

We use a local broker who gets it through Special Risk (the underwriter). Any decent commercial broker can do that.

They were super flexible. We asked for coverage for 9 year olds with .68, which we got. We have coverage for any age with Splatmaster. We don't do normal .50 right now, but I'm sure we could get 8 with that.

Hope that helps

Hey,

Special risk had some weird requirements, or maybe my broker just didn't ask the right questions.

I will confirm with him again.

Thanks for the tips!

What did they ask for? They basically didn't ask anything of us, it was weird.

But yes, often the broker has no idea what they're doing when they don't understand your business. Feel free to educate them lol

They initially came back and said minimum age was 16. I've spoken to my broker and he talked to them again and now they said they can do 10 and they are looking into the age of 8 or 9. We will see how it turns out.
