WATTLE PARK SAINTS BASKETBALL CLUB
REGISTRATION & TEAM SHEET FEE POLICY
PLAYER REGISTRATION FEES
Each season the Committee will review and confirm the level of its player registration fees. The player registration fees must be paid in full by a date set by the Registrar for both the Summer and Winter Seasons each year in order for a player to be able to take the court. In normal circumstances this date will be well before the first round of the fixture.
In all normal circumstances the club will insist that each player registered will have paid the set fees before taking the court. The club’s mission however is to encourage junior participation in the sport of basketball. The club therefore recognizes that participation should be encouraged in cases of financial difficulty.
In circumstances of financial difficulty, the Committee will give consideration to individual requests, made in writing, on a season to season basis, to either vary the due date and/or the amount payable. Any such variation or payment plan must be approved by the Committee before the player takes the court.
The finalized agreement will be documented and retained by the club treasurer but treated confidentially.
TEAM SHEET FEES
It is the responsibly of each team manager to collect monies from parents to pay for weekly team sheet fees. Any parent with several children in the one team must contribute to the team sheet fees for each child.
Failure to pay the team sheet fees will result in the club not accepting a child’s registration the following season until the unpaid fees are paid in full.
PRO-RATA PAYMENTS & REFUNDS
Player registration fee refunds are not normally considered and refunds are not available for change of mind. If you are affected by unforeseen circumstances, such as an injury, the committee may approve a pro-rata fee refund at its discretion. The committee will not however consider a pro-rata refund if more than half the season has been played prior to ny unforeseen circumstance occuring. Refunds will be in the form of a credit towards future seasons registration fees.
Please submit any applications for a registration fee refund to the committee in writing via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
