Player Insurance Information for the 2024-2025 season

Bethesda SC - Club Fee Protection Plan

$50 is the base price. This price will change to reflect a 3.2% in the total Player Registration Fee when you select the player's team that they will be joining for the Fall.

Players are forced to withdraw from a club each year for various reasons. Your financial obligation to the club is for the fees stated in the club registration material. The club has fixed expenses and cannot refund fees or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to depart early from a session.

The Club Fee Protection Plan can provide substantial financial relief if your child departs early from a session due to accidents, injuries, illnesses, job relocations, dismissals, and parent death.

WHAT THE PLAN COVERS

WITHDRAWAL OR ABSENCE FOR MEDICAL REASONS

  • The Plan will pay 75% of the average daily cost of insured club fees for the time withdrawn or absent, provided the player's "injury" or "sickness" forces the player to "withdraw" from the club session or medical absence exceeds 31 consecutive days. Benefits are paid retroactively to the first day of medical absence.
  • The Plan will pay 75% of the average daily cost of insured club fees for the time withdrawn or absent, provided the player's mental health condition, as referenced in DSM-V, forces the player to "withdraw" from the club session or medical absence exceeds 31 consecutive days. Benefits are paid retroactively to the first day of medical absence.

DISMISSAL

  • The Plan will pay 75% of the average daily cost of insured club fees for the remainder of the club session if the player is dismissed after the start of the enrollment period.

WITHDRAWAL DUE TO JOB RELOCATION

  • The Plan will pay 75% of the average daily cost of insured club fees for the remainder of the club session provided the player completely withdraws after the start of the club session as a result of residence change because the parent or legal guardian accepts employment in a geographic locale greater than 50 miles from his or her current job and therefore relocates his or her primary residence more than 50 miles from the location of the covered session.

ENROLLMENT CONTINUATION

  • The Plan will pay 75% of the average daily cost of insured club fees for the remainder of the club session upon the death of a parent or legal guardian, regardless of whether the player remains in the club session.

DEFINITIONS AND CONDITIONS

"Club session" (referred to as "period of enrollment" in the policy), upon which benefits are based, consists of the actual calendar days in the club session (including weekends and holidays) beginning with the first official day of the club session and ending with the last official day of the club session.

"Withdrawal or absence for medical reasons" means complete, involuntary severance from the club session as certified to and regularly treated during the coverage period by a legally qualified medical practitioner unrelated to the player.

"Injury" means bodily injury caused by an accident that occurs on or after the effective date of coverage but before the last day of coverage.

"Sickness" means any sickness or disease for which symptoms exist and medical advice or treatment is received after the effective date of coverage but before the last day of coverage.

"DSM-V" means the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Edition #5, including any subsequent editions of such manual.

"Withdrawal due to Job Relocation" means complete, voluntary severance from the club session due to residence change because the parent or legal guardian accepts employment in a geographic locale greater than 50 miles from his or her current job and, therefore relocates his or her primary residence more than 50 miles from the location of the covered session.

"Parent or Legal Guardian" means the financially responsible parent or legal guardian of the player who legally contracted with the club to enroll the player and pay the club fees for the session for enrollment.

"Dismissal" or "dismissed" means the complete involuntary severance from the club session at the club's direction for academic or disciplinary reasons for the balance of the enrollment period.

"Average daily cost" is found by dividing the club fees by the actual calendar days during enrollment.
