Pattern Insurance and Upper Hand have launched a new partnership to give parents and athletes effortless access to accident and registration insurance. 

Pattern Insurance and Upper Hand announce a new partnership which provides parents and athletes effortless access to accident and registration cancellation insurance, designed to protect children while participating in sports activities, using Upper Hand’s booking platform. 

The partnership sees Pattern and Upper Hand leading the industry, offering protections to end-customers during the registration process. The offering not only provides peace of mind for parents when signing their child up for an event, but the protections also allow facilities to mitigate conflict with their customers regarding injuries and refunds. 

The Upper Hand platform serves millions of athletes and thousands of sports organizations, and provides a comprehensive and integrated suite of tools such as managing memberships, staff and facility rescheduling, retail, video analysis and registrations. Through its partnership with Pattern, Upper Hand is now also able to offer real-time embedded accident and registration protection products, specifically designed for athletes participating in activities. The protections cover out-of-pocket medical costs, as well as lost registration fees due to accidents and illnesses. The Pattern embedded platform enables Upper Hand to offer relevant insurance coverages directly to parents, which can be reviewed and purchased while registering their child in for a team, tournament, club, or activity, and throughout their participation.partner insurance
