EPACT – Medical Information

Volleyball BC uses the services of ePACT, a very secure online emergency network, to improve emergency preparedness and safety for all our athletes. ePACT provides us with more accurate, up to date and legible information than the paper forms we’ve used in past. By utilizing a web-based platform, we can securely access the system via smartphone, tablet or computer at any training or competition location.

Using ePACT:

-Each player’s family will receive an email invitation from Volleyball BC to use ePACT.
-Families create their ePACT account, entering required details, such as medical needs and emergency contacts.
-Families securely connect with Volleyball BC allowing coaches/managers access to their information.
-Families can update ePACT anytime during the year, and we will automatically be alerted (e.g. add a new cell phone or new emergency contact, and we receive that update).
