What Exactly is Sports Fee Insurance

Sports Fee Insurance provides peace of mind and protection for the financial commitment made to be with a quality sports organization. In the event of the unexpected Sports Fee Insurance allows parents to receive a refund based on the time that was not used and guarantees the club receives what was financially obligated to them.

But why should a parent be forced to pay for something they are not able to use? Or why should a club ask the other parents to pay more for the player that left? It’s simply not fair. These fundamental questions are the backbone of Sports Fee Insurance, from US Sports Club Insurance.

The answer is really quite simple; youth sports clubs try to keep their player fees as low as possible while still offering a comprehensive product. If clubs offered refunds they would need to increase club fee’s up to 20% to cover the budget increase needed. Doing this would either remove other valuable offerings or make that club less competitive in the market, so most have a strict no-refund policy to ensure fees remain as low as possible.

Injuries in sport happen, kids get sick, and adults lose their jobs. These are facts of life that cannot be changed or controlled. Sports Fee Insurance on average cost 5% of the financial commitment that is made to the club, this is a reasonable investment to ensure you have peace of mind.
