AAU, Club, and Travel Golf Costs: An investment in your child’s future.
Whether AAU, Club, or Travel, golf is one of the most expensive sports to play. The equipment required throughout the typical club golfer’s 10-year involvement with the sport, combined with travel, registration fees, and instruction, quickly adds up. As USA Today documented, for high-end travel golf, costs can easily reach as much as $10k per year.
AAU, Club, and Travel Golf Registration Costs
Registration fees vary widely. The bad news: If your child sustains an injury / illness 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 still be available to use when your golfer 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 golf registration insurance from Sports Refund, if your golfer can’t compete, you don’t pay. Simple as that.
How Affordable Is Sports Refund?
Registration fees for AAU, Club, and Travel golf programs are thousands of dollars. And, leagues have a strict “No Refund” policy, meaning that if your golfer gets hurt or can’t play, you’ve lost the initial registration fee.
Until Sports Refund.
We offer golf season interruption insurance policies. Our policies cover the registration fees for sports programs at rates as low as 3% per person. 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 golf.
This is having a huge effect on our children. Common injuries for golfers include knees issues, dislocated fingers and ankle sprains. All of these injuries are covered by Sports Refunds sports interruption insurance.
Golfers, 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 in the event of an injury that requires your child to miss time during their season. 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 Golfers and teams/groups. Coverage is available for all golfers under the age of 26.
How Does Sports Refund Work?
Your Club, Travel, or AAU golfer’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 home owner’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 Golf and Travel golf Season Interruption Insurance: An example
Julia’s family paid $8,000 for an elite Junior Golf Association Power League. The league runs from January through May (120 days). Ten days into the season, Julia suffers a separated shoulder.
With just 20 days left in the golf season, Julia is ready to return to the course. She missed 90 days (75%) of the season, but her family has still had to pay the full $8,000 registration fee.
If Julia’s family had Sports Refund season interruption insurance, at a cost of about $200, they would receive a check for $6,000—75% of the season’s total registration fee.
