Refund POLICY

No refunds will be issued unless they are due to a documented medical condition. Refunds will be subject to a $35.00 administration fee. Please note that the OSA registration system, AIMS, is mandated by Ontario Soccer and is maintained by a third party who charges us a fee for each player registered. Should a player withdraw, we do not receive a refund on this amount which is reflected in any refund a player receives from the Club.
