REFUND POLICY

Updated: July 2021

Refund Policy Summary:

At the time of enrollment/registration you will be asked to agree to pay club costs for the full year commitment, which includes both Fall and Spring Sessions. You will be given the option to pay in full or you may have the option to pay in installments.

Your initial enrollment payment (amount as requested by PASC or SVSA in the enrollment phase which is roughly $500 deposit) is non-refundable.

Once registration is live and an installment plan is established, 50% of fees (after subtracting the non-refundable deposit) will also become non-refundable.

If a request for spring fees refund is made after November 15, no refund is applicable for the full year fees.

This refund policy applies regardless of whether the fees were paid upfront or are being paid in an installment plan for flexibility. If you select an installment plan for flexibility, you agree to allow PASC / SVSA to continue installments to cover the non-refundable fees.

Refund Policy Details:

Refunds will not be applicable for any reason including but not limited to: injury, change of coach, change of team, location or time of practice, choosing another sport that conflicts with location or time of practices or games, choosing to stop playing soccer, choosing to play for another club or conflict with school sport.

Player commitment is vital to growth and club continuity. Once a player has enrolled with the club or registered on a team they are committing to the club with respect to both time dedication and financial obligations. After a player enrolls/registers, a spot in the club is held for that player for the entire year long season. If a player can no longer keep the commitment to the club, this will impact the team and result in financial strain on the club. It is recommended that a player inquire regarding both club and team costs prior to enrollment/registration so that they understand the financial commitment required for each year-long season.

The club can not guarantee that a player will remain on any one team or promise a player will have any given coach in a given year. Additionally, coaches are continually monitoring progress of players and coaches may recommend a different level of play specific to a player mid-season or mid-year. If a player is asked to move to another team any time during the season or year and the player elects not to take the position on the newly recommended team and decides to leave the club, refunds will not be granted nor permitted except in line with our refund policy below. A coaching change also does not warrant a refund request nor will a refund be granted if there is a coaching change. Refunds are based only on the date when a transfer/refund request is officially submitted and as calculated below.

Standard Refund Request Process:

A refund request requires a refund form. The request can be found here: link to refund request. The effective date for any refund request will be the date the form is filled out and submitted or the last date of player participation whichever is later. The effective date determines the percent of annual fees eligible for refund as determined below for different parts of your fees. There will be no refunds granted if the request for transfer/refund is not filled out since no notification date is established.

MAJOR ACT OF GOD OR PANDEMIC RELATED SHUTDOWN

Installment option: installment payment options will provide additional flexibility to families. Families who choose an installment plan option continue to be subject to the refund policy above with the following exception.

If you choose to unenroll due to a shutdown that lasts more than 30 days, you may request to unenroll and stop future payments.
