Sports club injury cover — PBF Australia is there for you both on and off the field
No one can prepare a sportsperson for life in a wheelchair, but thinking ahead could help ease the impact. Being proactive with your sporting club’s health with PBF’s Sports Club Injury Cover provides financial and emotional security for your players in the event of an accident.
As a sporting club, association or social club, we are there for you both on and off the field, supporting your team’s safety. For as little as $15 per person per year our sports club injury cover can provide team members with the unique assurance that their financial security will be supported in the event of sustaining a permanent spinal cord injury.
In addition, PBF Australia’s Club Membership puts you in touch with award winning injury prevention and peer support programs that can complement existing health and safety training programs for your team. A PBF Sports Club membership assists paraplegic and quadriplegic members of our community to live meaningful independent lives through much needed funding.

“PBF membership would have made a world of difference in my life.”
We have a long history of partnership with sporting clubs and associations.
“AFL Masters WA joined PBF as Corporate Member 6 years ago, to provide assistance to any of our players in the event of an unfortunate spinal cord injury, covering 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The working partnership with PBF has ensured that awareness of spinal cord injuries prevention is raised in profile with all AFL Masters WA participants., through the Injury Prevention Presentations by allowing affected individuals to tell their story from a real life experience perspective. The messages are well received by those who see the presentations. It is a surprise to AFL Masters WA that more sporting clubs and Associations are not members of PBF.”
Nathan Dixon, Chairman, AFL Masters WA
Peace of mind for team and community members
While no one can ever be prepared for the life changing event of a spinal cord injury, our club memberships provide peace of mind to members including football leagues, a diverse range of sporting clubs, RSL, Rotary and Lions clubs.
