REFUND POLICY FOR 2023

Season Cancellations:  West Hill Softball 2023 Registrations are 100% refundable if the entire season is cancelled due to unforeseen events.  No administration fee will be levied in this scenario.

Season Interruptions/Reductions:  If the season is interrupted or considerably limited due to unforeseen events, appropriate refunded amounts will be determined by WHS at that time based on costs already incurred.

Participant-requested refunds will be considered on a case-by-case basis up until when teams have been formed (Approx. Date: Mar 15).  Refunds will be prorated based on the time spent within the program.  A $25 administration fee will also be applied for all participant-requested refunds.

VOLUNTEER & JERSEY BONDS FOR 2023

New in 2023, all players at u9 and older will be required to submit a $150 Volunteer Bond and $50 Jersey Bond once teams are formed.  (u7 Timbits are excluded, but parents are still encouraged to volunteer!)

All Bonds will be submitted to your Team Manager at the first practice in the form of Post-Date Cheques.  You will NOT be charged if the volunteer requirements are met, and your jersey returned.  You may choose to pay the $150 Volunteer Bond fee upfront if you are unable to volunteer this season.

Full Details about our new Bond Policy are found at:  http://www.westhillsoftball.ca/bonds/

SELECTS (Division 1) & UMPIRE FEES

Once again in 2023, we will requiring all Division 1 players to pay additional fees.

Umpire Fee:  All players will be subject to a $50 Umpire Fee if their team receives paid umpires for the 2023 season (based on whether CMSA charges the $650/team umpire fee.

Since most u15 & u17/u19 teams receive paid umpires, these fees will be added at registration.  Refunds will be provided for those u15 or u17/u19 teams that do not have umpires during the season.

Selects Fee:  All players chosen for the Division 1 team will be required to pay an additional $50 Selects Fee to cover incidental costs such as added gym/facilities for evaluations & practices, Vista Heights field fee, and enhanced WHS equipment.

INSTALLMENT PAYMENT OPTION

Once again in 2023, we will offer all registrations two payment options:

Installment Option:  An initial deposit payment of $75 (still fully refundable) is required at sign-up.  The second installment, for the remainder of the registration fee, will process on March 17.  There is no additional transaction fee if you use this split option.

Full Payment Option:  You may also choose to pay the season fee, fully upfront.
