Updated as of January 2015. This policy supersedes all other refund policy references or statements published.
The competitive program has a stringent refund policy because a player’s acceptance has the effect of denying another player an opportunity to play on a competitive team. Additionally, costs accrue to the Club for services provided to the team based on player headcount. Accordingly, fees are not refundable and not transferable. Fees for participation in the club cover the entire soccer year. A player who accepts an invitation to play with the Club commits to pay the entire fee for the full soccer year. No refunds, partial or full, will be made to players who choose not to participate at any point after registration for any reason, including players suspended from the program. The only exceptions are (1) In the event that a player has a season ending injury, the board may consider a partial refund after review of records provided by the treating physician or facility and (2) For families that move during the season. The board may consider a partial refund in these circumstances on a case by case basis.
Recreation Spring Program
Recreation Fall Program Refunds of registration fees less a $70 cancellation fee are available from April 1 – July 31st. Except for season ending medical or relocation requests, fees are not refundable and not transferable after July 31st. The club will grant a refund if we cannot place your player on any age appropriate team. Refunds for reasons of friend requests or carpooling accommodations will not be made. The only way to guarantee a spot on a team is to be the head coach of that team.
Except for medical or relocations requests, fees are not refundable and not transferable
Camps and all other MSC programs
Fees are not refundable and not transferable. Your registration is a commitment to participate.
Medical and Relocation Refund Requests
In the event that a player is injured during the season and cannot play or practice for the remainder of the season, the Board may consider providing a partial refund. Families must submit a written request with a physician note to the registrar.
In the event that a family relocates out of the area during the season the Board may consider a partial refund on a case-by-case basis. Families must submit a written request to the registrar.
Please note that refundable amounts are time-sensitive as costs accrue to the Club for services provided to the team based on player headcount each month. Consequently, the refundable amount will be affected by the date you request the refund, not the date of the event.
