  • A full refund shall be given if a team withdraws on or before the 60th day (2 months) prior to the tournament.
  • No refund shall be given if a team withdraws within 60th day (2 months) of an event unless a replacement team is found.

When a team withdraws prior to a National Championship:

  • If no games are started a 65% refund is given.
Note:
  • If governmental agencies shutdown our ability to play due to the coronavirus situation refunds are not guaranteed and contingencies and actions will be determined at that time once we know the extent of any shutdown and how the extraordinary situation would impact our ability to remain in business. 
  • In the case where teams are due a refund but are registered and unpaid for future events that refund shall be applied to the balance due on those future events. We reserve the right to adjust this policy at any time to accommodate unusual circumstances.
