Terms of Service, Refund Policy and Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk
NOTICE OF WARNING: There is a potential risk in training and participating in any sport, and we have tried to create a safe environment. The coaches have established rules for participation, and proper conduct on or about the playing field must be followed. Wellington Soccer Academy is not responsible for lost items belonging to participants. THE PARTICIPANT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OR HER OWN MEDICAL COVERAGE.
PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO: I understand that and I hereby consent to the use of any pictures/video footage taken of my child by Wellington Soccer Academy may be used in future promotions and/or on the Wellington Soccer Academy website.
CONSENT: I hereby give my consent to receive communications from Wellington Soccer Academy which may include announcements regarding specials, new programs, newsletters, event invitations or other information that may of be of interest to me.
AGREEMENT: I have read and understood the policies and the risk involved. I hereby agree that my child(ren) will follow all rules for good order and safety during this program. I hereby acknowledge that certain risks of injury are inherent to participation in sports and recreation activities. These types of injuries may be minor or serious and may result from the actions of the Participant, or the actions or inactions of others or a combination of both. I hereby assume full responsibility for any and all risks associated with the Activities and the Participant’s participation therein. I hereby release, remise and forever discharge Wellington Soccer Academy and any other of its related companies as well as each of the shareholders, directors, officers, employees, coaches and volunteers of the said companies (collectively the “Releasees”) from any and all demands, loss, liabilities, costs, damages and expenses (including but not limited to legal expenses and fees) actions, causes of action and claims of any nature whatsoever which I or the Participant may at any time have against the Releasees (or any of them) directly or indirectly by reason of, in respect of, connected with or arising out of his/her participation in the Activities operated by The Academy including but not limiting the generality of the foregoing: any personal injury or death or any damage to or loss of property the Participant may sustain from the activities carried on in the facilities of Wellington Soccer Academy. I further agree not to make any claim, to take any proceedings, or to maintain any action or proceeding against Wellington Soccer Academy or any other person or entity which might claim contribution or indemnity from Wellington Soccer Academy.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Wellington Soccer Academy will honour refund requests for the program for which the participant has been registered until 20 days prior to the start of the program. This policy encompasses all our Soccer Skills programs. All refund requests must be submitted in writing to the General Manager of Wellington Soccer Academy via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and all refunds are subject to a $45/player administration fee. Wellington Soccer Academy will try to reschedule the missed sessions due to situations outside of the academy’s control (like natural disasters or health emergencies), however, if no alternative date is available no refunds will be made.
No refunds will be provided after these deadlines, except in the following circumstances:
- A player cancelling registration on medical grounds will qualify for a full refund (if injured prior to program start). In the event of a mid-season injury, the participant will be eligible to a pro-rated refund, based on the number of games remaining after the date of the INJURY, with a deduction for the player’s uniform. In both cases a doctor’s note is required.
- Please note that where the injury is soccer-related while participating in a Wellington Soccer Academy program, no refund can be provided, as this would cause insurance coverage to be negated.
- In special or extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the General Manager.
In submitting and paying registration through our website for the Skills Programs, clients accept the Academy’s Soccer Skills Program Refund Policy conditions, registration conditions and the financial implications.
WEATHER POLICY: For sessions outdoors, we generally will play through rain and cold, and ask participants to bring proper clothing and gear. If weather forecast makes it impossible to even begin program, we will try to have announcements posted on our website and emails sent to participants. If weather becomes severe after we begin a day’s session (thunder, lightning, hail) we will try to take participants indoors. Parents can pick their children up at this time. Wellington Soccer Academy will try to reschedule the missed session, however, if no alternative date is available no refunds will be made.
PAYMENT POLICY: I agree and understand that I must pay the full amount of the program that I have chosen. If I for some reason decide to pull my child out of the program I am held responsible for any outstanding amount I may have.
