REFUND POLICY 

 
 

Please be sure you understand the policy before contacting us regarding refunds as this policy is firm.

June 1, 2019Full camp fee refund minus online registration system fees for requests submitted before 12pm on June 1.

June 1- July 1 - Refunds minus online registration system fees and $20 admin fee are available providing your athlete's spot in the camp can be filledWhile we will attempt to fill your spot with an athlete on our waitlist, we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so.

After July 1 - We are unable to provide refunds for cancellation requests inside this time frame. All expenses are incurred and it is very unlikely we are able to fill your spot. 

Please read and understand the below explanation of our policies:

 This camp operates at capacity for an ideal training group size. This group size ensures that each athlete receives individual coaching from our lead coaches, while also ensuring a big enough group to create a great experience off court. After June 1 all expenses are incurred to hold an athletes position in the camp and individuals on the waiting list have made alternate plans, meaning cancelled spots remain unfilled and the camp structure compromised.

Exception: if there is a significant injury that occurs prior to camp. In this case a Doctors note will be required and eligible athletes may receive a prorated refund based on expenses already incurred. This is NOT guaranteed and depends on a number of factors. Registration is made at your own risk knowing this information. Please contact us immediately to find out about your options*
