2020-2021 REFUND POLICY

COVID Update for 2020-2021 Season
Given the unique and unpredictable circumstances surrounding the 2020-2021 season, the SMGHA will endeavor to provide some flexibility and understanding with respect to refund requests. Throughout the season, we will consider all reasonable refund requests. Note that some fees are not refundable once a player has stepped on the ice for the first time, and the amount of any refund, if approved, may be prorated against the amount of ice time already used, training/instructor time already used, and insurance fees.

 


For House League Players
Refunds requested before the season start are subject to a $25 cancellation fee with the remainder of fees refunded. During the 2020-2021 season, a written request to withdraw a player (and request a refund) must be made in writing to the SMGHA Executive. Player registration fees shall be refundable in such amount as the Executive determines to be fair and reasonable in the circumstances, and the amount of the refund may be prorated against the amount of ice time already used and insurance fees. 
 
For Competitive Players
Once a player has been signed to a representative team, the coach and player are mutually committed for the year. Extenuating circumstances that result in a player leaving must abide by the following:

Player withdrawal
During the 2020-2021 season, a written request to withdraw a player (and request a refund) must be made in writing to the SMGHA Executive. Player registration fees shall be refundable in such amount as the Executive determines to be fair and reasonable in the circumstances, and the amount of the refund may be prorated against the amount of ice time already used, training/instructor time already used, and insurance fees.   
Player releases
1.      A player cannot be released from a team after the player has signed the offer letter and the deposit is paid, without approval from the Executive. A written request must be made to the VP Rep in order to be considered by the Executive. 
2.      Should the Executive approve the release, and the date of release is prior to December 1st, player registration fees shall be refundable in such amount as the Executive determines to be fair and reasonable in the circumstances. The amount of the refund may be prorated against the amount of ice time already used and insurance fees.
