Membership in the NLAA allows an athlete to compete in our sanctioned events. Every sport organization pays insurance as a corporate body on behalf of event organizers in case of legal liability or mishaps. Without insurance individuals would run the risk of unnecessary and very costly personal involvement in legal suits. Sanction and membership fees help to cover these costs and ensure that people will be willing to volunteer their time.

Who Can be a Member of NLAA? NLAA membership is open to all residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. Contact the NLAA Office for information regarding eligibility to take part in our programs regulated by the requirement to be either a Canadian citizen or a Landed Immigrant — ie: NL and Canadian Team programs and NL and Canadian funding programs.

There are opportunities to benefit from courses and clinics - as an athlete, official, or a coach. The NLAA also supervises events in order to insure that rules are followed and criteria maintained on an even basis throughout the province. Making provincial and national teams is also possible with full NLAA membership.
