Scotch Plains Fanwood Soccer Club Refund Policy

Travel Soccer Program

Travel soccer 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. Accordingly, program fees are not refundable. 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, or players who are suspended from the program due to a disciplinary action.  The only exceptions to this policy are (i) if a player suffers a season ending injury (doctor’s note required), (ii) there is a lack of an appropriate team for the participant, or (iii) a family relocates out of the area during the season (proof of residency may be requested).  In such cases, the Board, in its sole and final discretion, will consider a pro-rated refund depending on the specific circumstances.  All refund requests must be made in writing to Travel@SPFSoccer.com.

Junior Recreation, Senior Recreation and Diamond Academy Programs

Participants may request a full refund of their program fees up until season start.  After such date, no refunds, partial or full, will be made to players who choose not to participate for any reason, or players who are suspended from the program due to a disciplinary action.  The only exceptions to this policy are (i) if a player suffers a season ending injury (doctor’s note required), (ii) there is a lack of an appropriate team for the participant, or (iii) a family relocates out of the area during the season (proof of residency may be requested).  In such cases, the Board, in its sole and final discretion, will consider a pro-rated refund (less a $45 administrative fee for Senior Rec & Junior Rec, and a $100 administrative fee for Diamond Academy, which covers certain fixed costs of the program) depending on the specific circumstances.  All refund requests must be made in writing to the appropriate SPFSC representative as follows:

Junior Recreation - JuniorRec@SPFSoccer.com

Senior Recreation – SeniorRec@SPFSoccer.com

Diamond Academy - Travel@SPFSoccer.com

Recreational Camps & Clinics

Because of the advance planning and staffing that goes into each recreational camp and clinic, SPFSC has a stringent refund policy.  Participants may request a full refund up to 10 days in advance of the program start date.  Any cancellations after that date are non-refundable.  The only exception to this policy is if a player suffers an injury that prevents them from being able to participate in the entire camp/clinic.  In such cases, the Board, in its sole and final discretion, will consider a pro-rated refund (less a 5% administrative fee) depending on the specific circumstances.  All refund requests must be made in writing to Registrations@SPFSoccer.com and include a doctor’s note evidencing the injury diagnosis.

In the event of a voluntary cancellation by SPFSC of all or a portion of a camp/clinic (i.e., due to inclement weather) and such cancellation is not made up, a partial refund will be granted to participants.  The SPFSC, in it sole and final discretion, will provide such refund in either the form of original payment or as a credit towards a future SPFSC program.
