If a season is cancelled, registration fees will be refunded in the same form of payment. If a season is deemed salvageable, we are aware that there will be some registrants that choose to withdraw regardless.
Refunds for all sports, be it voluntary or due to season cancellation, will be processed through the same third party registration system. Due to the logistics of getting the funds to that company prior to being able to credit your account, there will be a 2-3 week delay from the time of season announcement and be processed only as a whole, not individual requests. Amended COVID-19 Refund Policy is listed in comments and on the main page of our website.
Southdale Spring 2020 COVID-19 Refund Information:
With the unprecedented circumstance we face as a community, the SRA Board of Directors has waived the majority of the Registration/Refund Policy as outlined in the SRA Policy Manual. Part of this policy states that the Laker Fee (charged to cover admin costs) is non-refundable. It was a very difficult decision to look at the best interest of our community in a situation well out of their control while balancing the financial demands of the online registration system utilized. As a non-profit organization struggling in this time like many others, the Board has decided to refund any portion of each registrant's Laker Fee over $10. While the $10 per registrant will not cover the full amount of registration system admin fees to the centre, it will assist to offset the cost with the goal of not having to increase future sport registration fees for costs related to this pandemic.
