All travel permit requests need a minimum of 5 days notice before travel. If the request is less than 5 days notice there is NO guarantee that you will receive the permit 24 hours before your team travels.
When traveling ensure you have your permit on hand and that it is written on any game sheets.
Click on the link below for the type of permit you require, travel or exhibition game, fill out the form and submit.
Your completed form will be sent to the Risk Management Coordinator who will submit your permit request on your behalf. ALL APPROVED permits will be emailed to the Risk Management Coordinator to be forwarded to the contact given on the request form submitted.
Please note that ALL game sheets need to be submitted using Electronic Game Sheets. A link is supplied with your permit additional instructions can be found by clicking the link below.
All hosts of Exhibition and Tournaments MUST use e-gamesheet to enter the stats from the gamesheets and upload the gamesheets and ref reports (pictures) - suspensions will be issued from the info received through e-gamesheet. The ref report will have to be typed in word for word as well as uploaded.
When entering tournament games - enter the games as they happen and save, but DO NOT hit SUBMIT until the end of the tournament. This is VERY important because it is difficult to re-open the permit. Hitting submit closes the permit.
