Cancellation Policy due to COVID-19

If the season is drastically changed or partially cancelled, then registration fee adjustments will be made.  It is impossible to say the impact that COVID-19 will have on our season and as such what a price adjustment or cancellation would look like as it would depend on what actually happens – partial season or full season cancellation, game limitations, practice limitations, whether the season dates can be adjusted, etc.

With respect to cancellation the following applies due to COVID-19 cancellations:

  • If you chose to withdraw your child from soccer, then the regular cancellation policy applies, as we need to consider the impact that just a few cancellations can have to the remaining players on a team who are wanting to play soccer.  

  • If the season is impacted in excess of a 20% reduction, due to governing organizations cancelling all soccer activities, then a pro-rated refund will be provided less any expenses incurred by the club (e.g. uniform & BC Soccer/District fees, etc.).  

  • If the season allows for training, but does not permit games in excess of a 30% reduction of games through the season due to COVID-19, then a pro-rated refund will be provided for the portion of the registration fee allocated to covering game costs (primarily field cost and referee fees) – this amount varies per age division and level of play as game costs can vary significantly.

  • All refunds will either be given as a credit on the family account at 100% of the refund amount, or refunded to a credit card less a $15 processing fee.  Any COVID-19 related cancellations will be processed at the end of the season.

  • Consideration will be made to allow for the make up of any portion of a cancelled season.  For example, if games are not permitted until November, then the league may offer to have multiple games on a weekend, shorten the Christmas break, offer mid-week games, or extend the season into March to allow for more game play.  This may affect the amount of refund applicable, depending on the situation.

Note that the above relates to cancellations due to COVID-19 and the restrictions imposed by government and sport related entities, and does not apply to cancellations due to weather or other factors out of the control of the Port Moody Soccer Club.
