Refund Policies

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

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

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. Refunds will be reviewed and approved by the NGS Board of Directors and will be set at a level appropriate to the circumstances.

  • 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.

Registrants of the Juniors, City, and Travel programs may be eligible for refunds under the following circumstances:

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. We do not refund late fees or donations.

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.
