Please read VABA’s refund policy carefully before proceeding through registration.
In light of the unusual circumstances regarding COVID-19, PLEASE NOTE THAT in the event that VABA's Winter League program is cancelled, families would be eligible to receive up to a 100% program-fee refund (this does not include any online transaction service charges). VABA will follow all state-mandated recommendations when determining viability of the winter league season. School-related cancellations will dictate VABA cancellations. If physical distancing is required (i.e. Phase I or II), VABA will cancel its winter league season.
These refund periods apply ONLY if VABA cancels the season - (not a registrant's family chooses to cancel - in this case, please see comprehensive refund policy below).
COVID Refund Policy (in the event VABA must cancel the season)
TERM #1: If VABA's winter league season is cancelled prior to October 1, families will receive a 100% program-fee refund.
TERM #2: If VABA's winter league season is cancelled between Oct. 1 and Oct. 31 families would receive a 100% program-fee refund, minus 30% total program cost.
TERM #3: If VABA's winter league season is cancelled between Nov. 1 and Jan. 1, families would receive a 100% program-fee refund, minus 50% total program cost.
Any league cancellation that occurs after January 1, families would receive a pro-rated refund of the remaining balance based on the number of games played.
THERE ARE ALWAYS A LIMITED NUMBER OF ROSTER SPOTS AVAILABLE. REGISTRATIONS ARE PROCESSED ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS. Waiting to register could result in respective leagues/teams/rosters being full! While we understand potential concerns for the unknown, VABA winter leagues require months of advance planning. If school is in session (gyms are available for practice/games), VABA will plan on holding its winter league season (barring physical distancing requirements). If physical distancing is required, VABA will cancel its winter league season.
PLEASE SEE BELOW.
REFUND POLICY (notwithstanding state-mandated COVID-19 school-related limitations):
All registrations require a minimum $100.00 non-refundable payment per program selection.
VABA will provide a refund under very limited circumstances, and VABA will not provide a refund for any reason if the request is made within 21 days of the start-date of any program. With regard to team programs (winter leagues, Bruins AAU, etc.), no refund of any kind will be provided after a player is assigned to a team regardless of when the request for a refund is made.
Except with regard to team programs (winter leagues, Bruins AAU, etc.) VABA will provide a full refund provided (1) the request is made more than 21days prior to the start-date of the program and (2) the basis for the request is either an injury or illness the onset of which occurs prior to the start-date of the program and is verified by a physician’s note or the player’s family relocates outside the Charlottesville/Albemarle area prior to the start-date of the program. VABA will not provide a refund because of an injury or illness that occurs after the start-date of the program. VABA will not provide a refund because the player’s family relocates outside of the Charlottesville/Albemarle area after the start-date of the program.
In its sole discretion, VABA may consider a pro rata credit that may be used against future registration fees if a player is injured after the start-date of the program and within the first half of the program and the player’s spot can be filled by another registrant.
Except as expressly provided above VABA will not provide a refund or consider a pro rata credit. To be clear, VABA will not provide a refund for any of the following reasons:
Any request for a refund or pro rata credit must be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and must set forth the basis for the request.
