USA Football, AIG and Next Wave Partner To Offer Registration Insurance Policy

Policy will reimburse parents/guardians if child cannot compete due to unforeseen circumstances

USA Football, the sport’s national governing body and a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, has partnered with AIG and Next Wave Insurance Services, LLC “Next Wave,” to offer parents a new, affordable insurance policy called “Registration Saver.”

AIG’s Registration Saver policy reimburses parents or guardians in the event a player is unable to participate in a tackle or flag football season, 7on7 tournaments, camps or clinics due to unforeseen circumstances before or after a season begins.

Registrations Saver encompasses two policies.  The multi-event policy (i.e. a season) covers the registration fees with premium calculated at 7%.  The single event policy cover events such as a tournament or camp and includes all travel related expenses at 6%.  The policy also covers parents and guardians when its league or organization has a “No Refund” policy related to registration costs in addition to situations where an injury sustained by a young athlete or weather impacts a player’s participation.

Among other reasons a child may be unable to play, include sickness or injury, as well as parental or guardian obligations, including active military service, job transfer, pregnancy complications, and others. If a child is unable to play during a season, the policy will reimburse the registration fee on a pro-rated basis.

“We are proud to partner with AIG and Next Wave to offer families this innovative policy,” said USA Football Senior Director of Sponsorship and National Teams GARRETT SHEA. “Parents can gain peace of mind knowing their child’s football registration fees may be reimbursed when situations occur that are out of their control.”

We’re excited about this new partnership with USA Football.  We’ve spent over three years working with AIG to develop this new insurance coverage to address the typical “No Refund” policy impacting families with kids playing all youth sports,” …said Next Wave CEO, JEFF WARD.  “We look forward to offering the policy to all parents investing in non-refundable fees and expenses with no recourse if some unforeseen event occurs.  Now we can cover the refund”.
