Pandemic Related Refund Policy
This policy will cover the refund process in the event of a stoppage of play due to unforeseen circumstances such as — but not limited to — pandemics, acts of God, facility closures, stoppages directed by HNB, or any other problems which may arise, causing the Association to completely cease operations.
Preparing for the minor hockey season is not only time consuming from an organizational stand point, but has many financial commitments to uphold such as ice rental cost, various fees (referees, timekeeping, banking and credit card processing, HNB membership), equipment, office supplies, coaching course fees, etc. Due to these inherent costs an administration fee of 15% will be deducted from the refund as soon as a player has attended his or her first sanctioned event.
Please note that there will be a delay of three to four weeks before issuing refunds or credits in order to properly assess the situation from Hockey Canada and HNB.
The following formulas will apply if a permanent stoppage in play occurs before the following dates:
|Season Ending Before||Refunded or credited amount|
|November 1st||75% of (registration fee - 15%)|
|December 1st||50% of (registration fee - 15%)|
|January 1st||25% of (registration fee - 15%)|
|February 1st||15% of (registration fee - 15%)|
|March 1st||10% of (registration fee - 15%)|
After March 1st no refunds will be issued.
