Refund Policy

Registration fees will be refunded up to the DAY BEFORE the first game of the season, less a $50 processing charge. Once the first game of the season is played the League has committed funds for insurance, equipment and clinics and it is not reasonable for these costs to be absorbed by other members of the Club. All refund requests must be made in writing to the Club Registrar and must include a photocopy of the original registration receipt or online invoice.

If we are unable to go forward with any type of a Fall 2020 season, we will issue refunds for all deposits.
