Refund Policy

Sparks AYSO Refund Policy

While we recognize that plans change and that it is difficult to know what you will be doing months in advance, we cannot always provide a full refund if you decide that you cannot participate in the season after you have registered.  There are certain unrecoverable costs that AYSO incurs at various times after you register.
 
To request a refund, you must submit the following information in writing by e-mail, letter, or postcard to our Regional Registrar. Please be sure the information is legible.
 
1.    Player(s) name:
2.    Player(s) birthday:
3.    Reason for the refund request:
4.    Make refund check payable to:
5.    Mail refund check to:
 
 
 
Please note that refund requests will be processed and distributed once a month. Refund deadlines are as follows:
 
SPRING SEASON:
1.    Requests received before and on February 28 will receive a full refund, minus the non-refundable AYSO National player fees and credit card processing fees.
2.    Requests received after February 28 will receive a 50% refund.
3.    No refunds will be granted after the second Saturday of matches.
 
FALL SEASON and Sparks AYSO Elite teams:
1.    Requests received before and on July 4 will receive a full refund, minus the non-refundable AYSO National player fees and credit card processing fees.
2.    Requests received after July 4 will receive a 50% refund.
3.    No refunds will be granted after the second Saturday of matches.
 
***Refund requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis for any 16U/18U players who are chosen for a local high school team.
 
 
 
Registrations are handled online through Blue Sombrero at www.ayso166.org.  Spring registrations are from October 1 to February 28, after which a wait list is formed.  Fall registrations are from April 1 to July 4, after which a wait list is formed.  These dates allow us to order uniforms and recruit volunteers.  Registrations are always “open” and we will still accept registrations after the registration period, even if that means waiting for a player spot to open up so you can be removed from the wait list.  Registrations and team placement during a season do not have pro-rated registration fees.  Players are not charged the registration fee until they are placed on a team.
 
Matches may be subject to cancellation for reasons not limited to lightning, smoke, closed fields, or safety.  There is a possibility of CO-ED teams. Every team is to provide 1-2 certified coach(es). Teams without a qualified volunteer coach will have all of their matches cancelled. Although those teams may practice instead, we would rather have someone step up to volunteer.
