Sporting contestants

If a person is engaged by an employer to participate as a contestant in a sporting or athletic activity (not in relation to section 19 of the Racing Act), then the person will not be treated as a worker for WorkCover insurance purposes while they are participating as a contestant in a sporting or athletic activity; or engaged in training or preparation for the contest; or travelling between a place of residence and the place at which the person is so participating or so engaged.
