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 Sparks AYSO Registrar, PO Box 51122, Sparks NV 89435. Please note that refund requests will be processed once a month and refunds distributed once a month.
Please be sure the information is legible.

Registrations are handled online through Blue Sombrero. Coaches and volunteers using discount cards will have one in-person opportunity to register just before the deadline. Spring registrations are from November 1 to February 26, after which a wait list is formed. Fall registrations are from May 1 to July 4, after which a wait list is formed. The wait lists are formed to allow ordering of uniforms and volunteer recruitment. Registrations are “open” and we will still accept registrations after the registration period, even if that means waiting for a player spot to open up so we can place you from the waitlist. Registrations and team placement during a season shall not have pro-rated registration fees. Players are not charged the registration fee until they are placed on a team.
At least 8 matches are scheduled each season. Matches may be subject to cancellation for reasons not limited to lightning, smoke, closed fields, or safety. Teams without a qualified volunteer coach are subject to disbanding. We would like to avoid that from happening. Please consider volunteering and getting certified. It takes a lot of dedicated people to make AYSO possible, and volunteers are always needed. If you are interested in participating, send us an email and apply online.
