The costs of participating in team sports – from youth sports to adult leagues – have skyrocketed.
In most cases, the teams and leagues rely on non-refundable tuition and fees to meet their own significant budgets to pay for coaches, referees, facility rentals, insurance and more. So how do families protect their tuition and fees if an athlete is unable to play? This may be due to injury or sickness of the participant or close family member, or the relocation of the family due to a job change.
Our STEP program provides an easy solution that benefits both the participants’ families, by providing financial reimbursement, and the organizations, by leaving their budgets intact. The relationship between the organization and family is greatly improved and, as an ancillary benefit, this may help alleviate the pressure of rushing back to the game so the athlete can rehabilitate properly.
The program can be placed by the organization for all participants or offered up on an optional basis with a minimal commitment from the organization.
Either way, it offers great protection at an affordable price with limited paperwork.
