Requests and documentation (for exceptions) should be submitted in writing to registrar@newtongirlssoccer.org.

Exceptions:

Academy and Development Programs

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

Juniors, City, and Travel

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 cancellation fee.  Proof of relocation must be submitted when requesting the refund.  Once the season starts, there are no refunds for moves.

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

If a player transfers from the Travel program to the City program after the cutoff date (July 15), they forfeit the price difference.

Skills Development and Vacation Clinics

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.

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

COVID-19 Refund Policy

Spring 2020: In the interest of player safety, as well as compliance with coronavirus social distancing measures, league cancellations, and school closures, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all of our spring 2020 soccer programs.  Families are eligible for a refund of the registration fees paid for the spring 2020 season.

As a sizable non-profit organization, Newton Girls Soccer has a number of fixed expenses that need to be covered even though we won’t have players on the field this spring.  These fixed costs include personnel (such as our Director of Coaching and Registrar), equipment, IT, storage, credit card processing fees, and nonrefundable league fees. For this reason, we cannot offer 100% refunds this spring.  A small “hold back” on refunds will help ensure that NGS survives this challenging period without a negative impact on the organization’s finances or standard of service.

Fall 2020 – Spring 2021: Given the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 outbreak, registrants will receive a full refund of NGS registration fees if a season is entirely cancelled due to social distancing measures, league cancellations, or school closures.

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