As parents, many of us know the joy and excitement that comes with watching our children participate in organized sports. Whether it’s the thrill of a hockey game, the teamwork of a volleyball match, or the strategic plays in a football game, youth sports can bring families together and build lifelong memories. However, the financial commitment required to support these activities can be significant. From registration fees to uniforms and tournament costs (not to mention travel and accommodations), the expenses can add up quickly. For many parents, thousands of dollars or more are being spent every season to support their child and their sport of choice. But what happens if your child gets injured or sick and can no longer participate? You may be surprised to learn that most teams do not offer refunds, which means you could lose the money you paid if something unexpected happens.

Enter Season Saver by pomi (an acronym for peace of mind insurance), an advantageous policy designed to help protect your (sometimes hefty) expenses in youth sports. Let’s explore why this insurance can be a valuable addition to any sports family’s financial planning.

The Cost of Commitment

Participating in organized sports is not just a time commitment; it’s a financial one. Registration fees alone can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on the sport and level of play. And that’s just for one season. Add in the cost of uniforms, equipment, and travel for tournaments, and the total expenses can be quite substantial. When unforeseen circumstances like injuries or illnesses strike, not only is your child’s sports season impacted, but your finances are too.

Why Season Saver Insurance?

Season Saver Insurance can offer a simple yet powerful way to help alleviate the financial burden. Here’s how it works:

  • Better Protection: Season Saver can provide up to 100% reimbursement of your unused team registration fees if your child is unable to play due to injury or illness. For instance, if you’ve paid $2000 for the season and miss half of it, you could get half your money back ($1000). If the whole season is missed, you could be refunded your full amount of the team registration fees and uniform costs.
  • Competitive Plans: Prices start at just $10*, making it a cost-effective way to help protect much larger expenses. See the average price below by sport based off a typical three month season.
  • Easy Enrollment: Getting coverage is quick and hassle-free. The entire process can be completed online in three minutes or less, without adding any extra stress to your busy schedule. Plus, you can sign up even after the season has started!
  • All Sports: This insurance isn’t limited to one type of sport. Whether it’s hockey, football, volleyball, baseball, or any other organized sport, Season Saver Insurance can have you covered. We cover kids playing in recreational, travel and competitive sports as well as adults up to age 25.

A Valuable Expense for Sports Parents and Players

Season Saver Insurance can offer a layer of financial security that can be invaluable. Here’s why:

  • Financial Protection: The primary benefit is the protection of your financial expenses. Injuries and illnesses are unpredictable, and having insurance helps ensure you won’t lose the money you’ve already committed to your own or your child’s sports activities.
  • Helps Achieve Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have a potential safety net can allow you to focus on enjoying the sport rather than worrying about potential financial losses. This can allow for a more enjoyable sports experience.
  • Encourages Participation: With the potential safety net of insurance, parents might feel more comfortable allowing their children to participate in higher-cost sports or more competitive leagues, knowing that their expenses can be protected. Who wants to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars in team fees and then lose out if they can’t play?
  • Simple and Convenient: The ease of getting a Season Saver policy means there’s no added burden. You’re busy enough! A quick online process makes it easy to check off the to do list from virtually anywhere at anytime.


In the world of youth sports, where the physical and emotional benefits for children can be immense, the financial commitment can also be considerable. Season Saver by pomi can provide a safeguard for parents, helping ensure that your expenses toward your child’s athletic development are protected. By offering up to 100% reimbursement of unused team registration fees in the event of injury or illness, pomi helps families support their young athletes with confidence.
