AAU, Club, and Travel Swim Team: Value every stroke.
Whether AAU, Club, or Travel, swim team can be expensive. A swim suit and goggles might be essential, but the cost of registration and individualized coaching can add up. Be sure you are in the best position to protect your investment should issues arise along the way.
AAU, Club, and Travel Swim Team Registration Costs
Registration fees vary widely. A single-season Club, Travel, or AAU swim team registration fee, depending on league level, can easily cost over a hundred dollars.
The bad news: If your child picks up an injury or is otherwise unable to swim, you are stuck having paid the registration fee. Travel, provided tickets haven’t already been purchased, can be money saved. Gear will still be available to use when your swimmer 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 swim team registration insurance from Sports Refund, if your athlete can’t compete, you don’t pay. Simple as that.
How Affordable Is Sports Refund?
Registration fees for AAU, Club, and Travel swim programs can be over a hundred dollars. And, leagues have a strict “No Refunds” policy, meaning that if your athlete gets hurt or can’t compete, you’re stuck having to pay.
Until Sports Refund.
We offer swim 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 compete, 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 swimming.
This is having a huge effect on our children. Medical professionals have noted the increase in ‘recurring use’ injuries. Swimming injuries are more common than you’d expect and there is a long-term impact that come with 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 Compete? Don’t Pay!
What and Who Does Sports Refund Cover?
Sports Refund covers both individual AAU, Club, and Travel Swim Team participants and teams/groups. Coverage is available for all athletes under the age of 26.
How Does Sports Refund Work?
Your Club, Travel, or AAU swimmer’s physical well-being is covered by your health insurance. Gear, 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 Swim Team Travel Interruption Insurance: An example
Tom’s family paid $500 for an elite swim team registration running from June through September (120 days). Ten days into the season, Tom suffers from “swimmer’s shoulder.”
With just 20 days left in the swim season, Tom is ready to get back in the water He has missed 90 days (75%) of the season, but his family has still had to pay the full $500 registration fee.
If Tom’s family had Sports Refund season interruption insurance, at a cost of less than $25, they would have received a check for $375–75% of the season’s total registration fee.
