Refund, Cancel & Heat Policy

When a team withdraws prior to a tournament:

Teams should plan for the unexpected and understand that the scheduling process starts weeks and sometimes months before an event is scheduled to take place and often times events are full for months.
  • 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.

Refunds, cancellations or shortening of a tournament.

While we will make every attempt to play each event, weather may prevent an event from being completed or in some cases, even starting. In those cases:

  • If at least 2 games are started no refund is provided.
  • If at least 1 game is started a 50% refund is given.
  • 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.
