There have been a few changes to the refund policy to be more flexible in the event that we have another closure or the restrictions put on by the government do not suit your child's interests.
Refunds will be issued on a pro-rated schedule based on a full season, with a processing fee (to cover fees associated with payment and returns for credit card users) assessed prior to prorating. No refunds will be considered after December 15th, unless due to injury, relocation outside the association boundaries or unusual circumstances (Covid or other government enforced closures)determined by the Executive.
We have removed the mandatory $25 tournament fee from registration as we are unsure at this time if we will be able to hold a tournament. In the event we are able to host a tournament the $25 tournament fee will be mandatory and collected at a later date.
We have extended the final payment due date to Oct 15 this season to allow families to spread the payments over the next four months, as well as having no fee increase this season in an effort to ease the financial hit to families that may be struggling. If you are in need of a longer time etc please contact the executive to allow us to work with you as we do not want to have anyone miss out on this upcoming season.
