Please ensure that you fully understand the SASA Withdrawal Request Policy prior to submitting your request.
The St. Albert Soccer Association is a non-profit organization. The Association strives to maintain the lowest possible fees and ensures that our members receive the highest level of soccer programming possible.
The Association incurs an operations cost for each player during registration including but not limited to membership dues, facility maintenance, staffing, equipment, and uniform expenditures.
It is because of these costs that SASA adheres to a strict withdrawal policy.
- May 15 or following 2 week grace period of published start date
- November 10
From Registration to Submission Deadline
Withdrawals requested after registration but prior to the beginning of the season or pre EMSA declarations will be subject to a $50.00 operations fee. After that date, additional hard costs have been paid and will be deducted from your refund.
**Due to COVID-19, the operations fee stated above has been waived for the pre-season (prior to the publication of team rosters) or for families withdrawing due to substantial changes being announced in the advertised programs.**
In Case of Injury after Submission Deadline (Medical)
Withdrawals requested after May 15th or November 10th will be subject to an Operations Fee for hard costs already paid, plus a pro-rated discount based on the number of games (& practices - Indoor) played by the team. The Withdrawal Request will not be processed without a Doctor’s note.
**Tier 1 - 3 & AYSL/PDP Withdrawals
In addition to the above admin fees, withdrawals requested after you have accepted a position on a Club team will be subject to an additional $200.00 non-refundable league fee. Refunds will be considered based on circumstances and are not guaranteed.
For additional Skills Development Programs (Impact Center of Excellence (I.C.E.), Keeper Training, etc.), withdrawal requests will be accepted up prior to the third scheduled session (25%). Withdrawal after this date will be subject to the operational fee as well as being prorated based on the amount of training sessions scheduled to date.
Method of Refund
Registered participants may choose one of the following options.
- Donate fees to SASA Hardship Fund
- Credit to be held and used on future registration within the following 12 months
- Refund in the manner in which payment was received
If no choice is made on the Withdrawal form, SASA reserves the right to issue refund as a credit to the account.
All refunds will be returned in the manner in which payment was received. Those funds received through "offline" methods will be issued by cheque.
