AAU, Club, and Travel Volleyball Costs: An investment in your child’s future
Whether AAU, Club, or Travel, volleyball is one of the most expensive sports to play. The equipment required throughout the typical club volleyball player’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 volleyball, costs can easily reach as much as $10k per year.
AAU, Club, and Travel Volleyball 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 volleyball 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 volleyball 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 volleyball programs are thousands of dollars. And, leagues have a strict “No Refund” policy, meaning that if your volleyball player gets hurt or can’t play, you’ve lost the initial registration fee.
Until Sports Refund.
We offer volleyball season interruption insurance policies. Our policies cover the registration fees for sports programs at rates lower than 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 volleyball.
This is having a huge effect on our children. Common injuries for volleyball players include knees issues, dislocated fingers and ankle sprains. All of these injuries are covered by Sports Refunds sports interruption insurance.
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 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 Volleyball 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 volleyball athlete’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 Volleyball and Travel Volleyball Season Interruption Insurance: An example
Danielle’s family paid $8,000 for an elite Junior Volleyball Association Power League that signed up for group insurance. The league runs from January through May (120 days). Ten days into the season, Danielle suffers a separated shoulder.
With just 20 days left in the volleyball season, Danielle is ready to return to the court. She missed 90 days (75%) of the season, but her family has still had to pay the full $8,000 registration fee.
If Danielle’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.
