AAU, Club, and Travel Football Costs: Your Costs May Vary
Whether AAU, Club, or Travel, football can be an expensive sport to play. The equipment required throughout the typical AAU football player’s 10-year involvement with the sport, combined with travel, registration fees, and instruction, quickly adds up.
AAU, Club, and Travel Football Registration Costs
Registration fees vary widely. A single-season Club, Travel, or AAU football registration fee, depending on league level, can cost thousands of 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 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 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 football programs can be thousand of dollars. And, leagues have a strict “No Refunds” policy, meaning that if your football player gets hurt or can’t play, you’re stuck having to pay.
Until Sports Refund.
We offer 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 football.
This is having a huge effect on our children. Medical professionals have noted the increase in ‘recurring use’ injuries. From concussions to elbow bursitis to a host of knee and back overuse ailments, these injuries have historically been more associated with aging veteran professionals. 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?
How Does Sports Refund Work?
Your Club, Travel, or AAU 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 Football and Travel Football Season Interruption Insurance: An example
Luke’s family paid $2,000 for an elite travel football registration running from September through December (120 days). Ten days into the season, Luke suffers an ACL tear.
With just 20 days left in the football season, Luke 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 $2,000 registration fee.
If Luke’s family had Sports Refund season interruption insurance, at a cost of about $100 they would have received a check for $1500–75% of the season’s total registration fee.
