Refund Policy for 2020-21 Season
By registering for Haverford Ice Hockey Club, the family (player or parent/guardian) agrees to be responsible for paying the remaining Player Fee due to the club. In the event that the player’s privileges are suspended and/or terminated for any reason, including (but not limited to) disciplinary or academic issues, injury or illness, the player fees will NOT be prorated or refunded for any portion of the season. I understand that all fees, including the registration fee, are non-refundable and do not guarantee placement on a specific team. The parent or guardian understands and agrees that if the player resigns or otherwise voluntarily terminates his/her participation for any reason after signing this agreement and participating in evaluations, the family (player or parent/guardian) is not entitled to a refund of the Player Fee and must pay the entire remaining balance of the Player Fee before the player will be permitted to resume participation with the club in this or future seasons. The parent or guardian understands that the USA Hockey Atlantic District requires member clubs to report any player’s outstanding financial obligation to the district. The parent understands that a reported player cannot be placed on the roster of any other Atlantic District team (middle school, high school, in-house or travel ice hockey team) until the outstanding financial obligation to the club is satisfied.
Pandemic Financial Hardship Refund (notify club by July 31, 2020)
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related government restrictions, the Haverford Ice Hockey Club will offer families the option to withdraw their player from the club for the 2020-2021 season if they are experiencing hardship (such as a loss of a job). To exercise this option, the family must notify the club president in writing via email (Frank Heller, firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than July 31, 2020, that they are withdrawing their player from hockey for the 2020-2021 season and the reason for the financial hardship. Upon the satisfaction of those terms, the club will refund registration and tuition payments and forgive any future payments due for the season.
Shortened or Interrupted Season
If the season is affected by COVID-19 or for some other reason resulting in governmental restrictions that close the rink (a "Shutdown") and shorten or interrupt the season, the club will provide a tuition refund to the player's family at a prorated percentage, as determined by the Board of Directors. The prorated refund will include any full regular season week missed and not able to be made up due to a shutdown between September 1, 2020, and February 28, 2021, less non-refundable expenses incurred by the club. This refund will be issued as soon as possible but no later than two (2) months from the last day of the season or April 1st, whichever occurs later.
If the entire season is canceled due to a pandemic or some other reason resulting in governmental restrictions that close the rink (a "shutdown"), the club will provide a refund of the money paid to the club by the player's family, less any non-refundable expenses incurred by the club. This refund will be issued as soon as possible but no later than two (2) months of the date of cancellation of the season.
