AAU, Club, and Travel Flag Football Costs: Ease the pain of a season ending injury
Whether AAU, Club, or Travel, flag football can be more expensive than you think. Equipment is minimal, but registration fees and instruction can be costly. Although having fun and loving the game is important, the costs associated with a commitment to the sport can really add up.
AAU, Club, and Travel Flag Football Registration Costs
Registration fees vary widely. A single-season Club, Travel, or AAU flag football registration fee, depending on league level, can easily cost over a thousand dollars.
The bad news: If your child picks up an injury or is otherwise unable to play, you are stuck having paid the registration fee. Travel, provided tickets haven’t already been purchased, can be money saved. Equipment and gear will still be available to use when your flag football player is healthy. However, the registration fee, which is the most expensive cost? That’s gone.
The good news: That doesn’t have to be the case. With flag football registration insurance from Sports Refund, if your athlete can’t play, you don’t pay. Simple as that.
How Affordable Is Sports Refund?
Registration fees for AAU, Club, and Travel flag football programs can be over a thousand dollars. And, leagues have a strict “No Refunds” policy, meaning that if your flag football player gets hurt or can’t play, you’re stuck having to pay.
Until Sports Refund.
We offer flag football season interruption insurance policies. Our policies cover the registration fees for sports programs and cost less than 5% of the total registration fee, on average. If your child can’t play, you don’t pay.
Why Do I Need Sport Registration Insurance?
AAU, Club, and Travel sports require commitment from their athletes. The days of children cycling through sports with the calendar are largely gone, and most sports now are year-round schedules–even flag football.
This is having a huge effect on our children. Medical professionals have noted the increase in ‘recurring use’ injuries. Injury rates in flag football are said to be similar to soccer injuries, and there is a long-term impact that comes with increased and early sports specialization. Sports Refund protects you from ever having to balance the money spent against your child’s long-term health. And with our easy sign-up system and low-cost coverage, there are no hurdles to clear. It’s as simple as:
Can’t Play? Don’t Pay!
What and Who Does Sports Refund Cover?
Sports Refund covers both individual AAU, Club, and Travel Flag Football players and teams/groups. Coverage is available for all players under the age of 26.
How Does Sports Refund Work?
Your Club, Travel, or AAU flag football athlete’s physical well-being is covered by your health insurance. Equipment, should it be stolen or damaged outside of normal wear-and-tear, is probably covered by homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. Even travel costs can be insured.
But the registration fee (which is typically the most expensive costs)? That is virtually always non-refundable. With Sports Refund’s season interruption insurance, however, your family is protected against real financial loss.
All you have to do is sign up. That’s it. No examinations, no long questionnaires.
AAU Flag Football and Travel Flag Football Season Interruption Insurance: An example
Ryan’s family paid $1,000 for an elite travel flag football registration running from September through December (120 days). Ten days into the season, Ryan suffers a concussion.
With just 20 days left in the flag football season, Ryan is ready to return to the field. He has missed 90 days (75%) of the season, but his family has still had to pay the full $1,000 registration fee.
If Ryan’s family had Sports Refund season interruption insurance, at a cost of about $50 they would have received a check for $750–75% of the season’s total registration fee.
