Refund Policy

Fall 2020 – Spring 2021 COVID-19 Refund Policy

Given the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 outbreak, we have adjusted our standard cancellation and refund policy to allow families greater flexibility.

Cancellation requests and any documentation should be submitted in writing to registrar@newtongirlssoccer.org.

Program Cancellations Due to COVID-19

Registrants of all NGS programs (Juniors, City, Travel, Academy, Skills) will receive a refund of the NGS registration fees if a program is entirely cancelled due to social distancing measures, league cancellations, or school closures. We will not charge a cancellation fee or hold backs.

Multi-season programs that register annually instead of one season at a time will receive a prorated refund to cover the season or part thereof that was cancelled.

  • The academy is a three-season program: fall, winter, and spring. Each season is valued at approximately 33% of the annual registration fee. 
  • Travel is a two-season program: fall and spring. Each season is valued at 50% of the annual registration fee. 

In the event that a program is cancelled after it has already started, participants will receive a prorated refund to cover the missed sessions.

Juniors, City, and Travel Programs

Pre-season cancellations: Cancellations made up until the first game of the season will receive a refund, less a $20 cancellation fee. After the first game of the season, there are no refunds unless the season is cancelled or the player has a season-ending injury or illness.

Illness or injury: If a player has a season-ending injury or illness, she may receive a pro-rated refund. A note from a doctor must be submitted within two weeks of the injury.

Moving: If a player moves out of Newton and notifies the registrar before the season starts, she may receive a refund of the registration fee, less a $20 cancellation fee.  Proof of relocation must be submitted when requesting the refund.  Once the season starts, there are no refunds for moves.

Transfers: If a player transfers from the Travel program to the City program before the season starts, they will receive a refund of the price difference. If a transfer is requested after the season starts, they will forfeit the price difference.

Academy and Development Programs

Registrants of the Academy and Development Academy programs are NOT eligible for refunds, unless the player has a season-ending injury or the program is cancelled. Only register if you are 100% committed. If a player has a season-ending injury or illness, she may receive a pro-rated refund.  A note from a doctor must be submitted within two weeks of the injury.  

Skills Development and Vacation Clinics

Pre-season cancellations: You must cancel prior to the first session to receive a refund, less a $20 cancellation fee. After the session starts there are no refunds unless the program is cancelled, the schedule is changed or the player has a season-ending injury.

Schedule Changes: The skills development and vacation clinic schedules are subject to minor changes depending on registration numbers and coach availability.  If we change the session times or dates, registrants with a conflict may withdraw without paying a cancellation fee.  If a player’s team schedules a regular practice at a time that conflicts with the session, you may also withdraw without penalty.

Illness or injury: If a player has a season-ending injury or illness, she may receive a pro-rated refund. A note from a doctor must be submitted within two weeks of the injury.
