Refund Policy


Marpole Soccer Club Refund Policy  

 

Team Refund Policy  

 

The refund policy in youth soccer is in place to ensure that teams formed during the selection/registration process maintain their stability when the season gets underway. Please be mindful that last minute changes can be disruptive to the team and other players, for this reason refunds are possible prior to deadline, less an administration fee. 

 

  • $40 admin fee, October 31 deadline. After this deadline, no refunds will be given.  
  • Absolutely no refunds for any player leaving to join a private academy.

 

Requests and questions are to be emailed to the registrar at registrar.marpole@gmail.com  

 

Spring Programs (Mini Spring Soccer & Spring Academy - April to June)
  

Refunds 

Approved refunds include pro-rating the registration fees after a $20 administrative fee deduction. Requests and questions are to be emailed to the registrar at registrar.marpole@gmail.com 

 

No refunds will be given as of April 30.  

 

Cancellations 

League (practices and games) and spring programs will only be cancelled in severe or sudden adverse weather conditions. If this is the case, parents will be notified via email of any cancellations and , the Club will look for every reasonable opportunity to extend sessions if field permits are available, however there is no guarantee that fields will be available beyond the regular season and field permits are governed exclusively by the City of Vancouver. The club will not be responsible for refunds if we are unable to reschedule any missed sessions due to weather. 

 

Exceptions will be made for players on case-by-case basis. The refunded amount maybe pro-rated. Affiliation fees are non-refundable.  

  • player who has a season-ending injury (doctor’s note is required) 
  • whose family unexpectedly relocate out of the Vancouver area.  

 

Additionally, 

  • The final amount of any refund will be at the discretion of Marpole Soccer Club. 
  • If space limitations prevent us from placing a player on a team, a full refund will be provided. 
  • Marpole Soccer Club will not consider refunds for circumstances beyond the club’s control. (weather, government/municipal decisions, field availability / closures, indoor availability etc.) 
  • Marpole Soccer Club will not consider refunds for players or persons removed/suspended/expelled from Marpole Soccer Club. 
  • Coaches / Team officials are not authorized to issue refunds. 

 

COVID-19 REFUND POLICY 

Given the possible uncertainty due to COVID-19 we know there will be additional questions about refunds. 

  • For regular season play or a modified version of it, our normal Refund Policy, at the time of registration, will apply (see below). This remains in place to encourage stability after team selection. 
  • If the season is cancelled in full due to COVID-19 issues, members will be offered two options: 
    1. Alternative safe programming (development and skills training academies) as approved by BC Soccer, or 
    2. A refund less a $40 administration fee. 

Our club continues to develop programs to encourage players of all ages the opportunity to play during these uncertain times.  We remain hopeful that a regular or modified schedule will still prevail for our 2021/22 Fall and Winter season.
