Approved funds from the Every Kid Sports Pass are required to be processed through the approved youth sports organization, provided in the application; if the organization is not set up as a youth sports organization the funds will continue to decline. These protections are in place in order to ensure that Every Kid Sports funds are exclusively used to pay for registration fees. Every Kid Sports has a fiduciary responsibility to our generous individual and corporate sponsors to ensure funds are used as stated in the approved application. Relationships with our partners, sponsors, and donors are crucial for Every Kid Sports to continue providing the Every Kid Sports Pass on a National scale.
General Tips & common troubleshooting:
- Youth Sports Organizations using PayPal must be a Business PayPal account and not a personal account and must be set up as such.
- If using a PayPal account that is connected to another business, this could be the reason for the decline. The Every Kid Sports Pass only approves the use of funds towards youth sports registration fees. Attempts to use funds towards other businesses or organizations will be declined.
- Please note Cash App, Zelle, Venmo, Xoom, and other money transfer apps are not approved for use of the Every Kid Sports Pass funds.
- The card is a debit card; if an attempt to run the card for a greater amount than what is on the card, the card will automatically decline. If there is a difference between what is on the card and the amount that must be paid, request a split transaction.
