Cancellations/ Refunds

Cancellations/ refunds

  • Once our leagues begin there will be no refunds given.

Team Registration

  • Once you register and pay as a team for one of our sports your spot is held for you and can not be taken by another team.  If a team wishes to cancel before the registration deadline we are not always able to issue a refund as we may have turned away another team for the spot in the league which was held for you.  Subsequently NRS only runs our leagues with an even number of teams to keep the integrity of the league.  Your cancellation may mean another team is also not able to play.  We will do our best to find a replacement for your spot but sometimes it is not possible.  If we do find a team to take the spot initially reserved for you, a full refund minus a 35% administrative and processing fee based on the full cost of a team registration (not the deposit if a deposit was placed) will be applied.
  • If a team cancels after the registration deadline or if the league has filled up no refund will be provided and Niagara Rec Sports will look for another team to take that team’s place.
  • If a team does not show up to the first game and fails to contact Niagara Rec Sports, we will look for another team to take that team’s place.
  • When registering as a team the team captain is responsible for the full payment.  The team captain may charge their team members what ever they feel is needed to divide that expense equally among the team members.  This is between the team members and the team captain as it has nothing to do with Niagara Rec Sports.    No individual refunds will be given to team members that are on a team that has registered as a team by a team captain.

Individual Registration

  • Individual registration – Once you register as an individual or team and pay for one of our sports your spot is held for you and can not be taken by another player/ team.  If a player wishes to cancel before the registration deadline we are not always able to issue a refund as we may have turned away another player for the spot in the league was held for you.  Subsequently NRS only runs our leagues with an even number of teams to keep the integrity of the league.  Your cancellation may mean another player is also not able to play.  We will do our best to find a replacement for your spot but sometimes it is not possible.  If we do find a player to take the spot initially reserved for you, a full refund minus a 35% administrative and processing fee based on the full cost of a player/ team registration (not the deposit if a deposit was placed) will be applied.  A player wishing to cancel after the registration deadline no refund will be given.

General

  • If a player or team cancels after the registration deadline or if the league has filled up no refund will be provided.
  • No refunds due to defaulted, cancelled or rescheduled games.
  • No refunds due to injuries.
  • No refunds for a player/ team that for what ever reason is no longer able to play once the league begins.
  • Teams or individuals suspended or ejected from NRS leagues will not receive refunds.
  • Individual/ Group Registration: Individual registrants are welcomed and encouraged to register, and all attempts will be made to place you on a team.  Usually we are able to place yourself and your group together on a team.  It is a great way to meet new people playing a sport you enjoy.  A lot of the times the individual teams will stick together and form their own team the following season.  There may be the odd time we are not able to place you on a team in these situations a full refund will be given.

Niagara Rec Sports reserves the right to remove and or deny anyone entry to/ from  our leagues, tournaments & events.

Forfeit Fine – Less than 24hrs notice

All teams must give min 24hrs notice if they are not able to field a team or they will be charged a $50.00 late notice forfeit fee.  The team can not play another game in the league until the $50.00 fee is paid.

This is to ensure we are able to give opposing teams and referees enough notice that your team will not be able to make it to the game.  No one likes going to a scheduled up to the game only to find out the other team did not bother to tome.

This normally is not an issue as most teams respect each other enough to give proper notice, this fee is for those that don’t.

We are very lenient with this policy and as long as you have a few people show up and can form a team with other players playing before your game at the diamond, field and/ or court so the opposing team has a game to play your team will not be fined.

At the end of the season any money collected from the forfeit fine will be donated to a local charity such as project share.
