Club and Travel Ultimate Frisbee Costs: Don’t Pay for What You Can’t Use
Whether Club, Travel, or a select team, ultimate frisbee is not an inexpensive sport. Although equipment costs are minimal, travel fees and other club costs can add up. And the physicality of the game ensures there will be injuries. The question is: how devastating will they be?
Club and Travel Ultimate Frisbee Registration Costs
Registration fees vary widely. A single-season Club or Travel ultimate frisbee registration fee, depending on league level, can easily cost over several hundred 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, provided it still fits, will be available to use when your ultimate frisbee 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 ultimate frisbee 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 Club and Travel ultimate frisbee programs are hundreds of dollars. And, leagues have a strict “No Refunds” policy, meaning that if your ultimate frisbee player gets hurt or can’t play, you’re stuck having to pay.
Until Sports Refund.
We offer ultimate frisbee 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?
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 ultimate frisbee.
This is having a huge effect on our children. Medical professionals have noted the increase in ‘recurring use’ injuries. Injuries that have historically been associated with seasoned athletes today are ending seasons of much younger players. As the popularity of ultimate frisbee grows, so do the injuries.
Players, parents, and coaches all are more aware of the health concerns and the potential long-term impacts that come with increased and early 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 Club and Travel Ultimate Frisbee players and teams/groups. Coverage is available for all players under the age of 26.
How Does Sports Refund Work?
Your Club or Travel ultimate frisbee player’s physical well-being is covered by your health insurance. Their 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.
Club Ultimate Frisbee and Travel Ultimate Frisbee Season Interruption Insurance: An example
Evan’s family paid $300 for an elite travel ultimate frisbee registration running from June through September (120 days). Ten days into the season, Evan suffers from elbow bursitis, a common overuse injury.
With just 20 days left in the ultimate frisbee season, Evan 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 $300 registration fee.
If Evan’s family had Sports Refund season interruption insurance, at a cost of about $15, they would have received a check for $225–75% of the season’s total registration fee.
