We are a non-profit organization. We collect the registration funds and pay for the expenses to run the season based on enrolment projections. When this year started, we proceeded as we always do. We ordered uniforms, paint for the fields, nets, goals, soccer balls, etc. We endured expenses thus far that we counted on the registration money to pay and we had to pay all our expenses with half of the money coming in.
This pandemic has hit our non-profit organization very hard. It has been a financial hardship and we are doing everything in our power to be fair to all of our members while at the same time possess the ability to be viable for the children in our community for the future. Regrettably, we are unable to refund the full amount of registration as it will leave the club in dire financial straits. In order to maintain TRSC for the future players, we ask you kindly to roll your registration over to the 2022 soccer season. We have a record of all this season’s registrations and we will automatically put you on a team next season. You will be considered paid in full even if the registration fee is higher for the 2022 season.
If you still want to have a refund, unfortunately, the partial refund amount is $40.00. Please remember, as a board, it is our responsibility to ensure the survival of the club and our ability to continue to operate.
In consultation meetings with the other house league clubs in Windsor and Essex County, collaboratively, we are offering the same solutions, as we are all in the same position. We hope that you understand. We have no other alternative. Please continue to stay safe, practice good hygiene and social distancing.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding in this difficult decision.
