Refund Policy


Refund Policy for 2021 Lacrosse Season

2021, due to Covid 19, poses a new challenge to our association

We know that families have a lot of uncertainty about the future of the season so registration will work a little differently than it has in the past. Here is what families can expect. Upon registration, each registrant will be asked to pay a non-refundable amount. That amount will be 25% of the total registration fee, due at registration

Why is this deposit non-refundable?

The short answer is that operating a minor lacrosse club does have ongoing expenses that need to be paid regardless of what participation looks like. Things like websites, insurance, administrative staff (we haven't paid any staff directly in High River, but we benefit from and share the costs of CDLA and ALA staff), and administrative fees all continue to have to be paid. Last season HRLA chose to refund 100% of all registrants' money and paid funds to ALA and CDLA for their continued operations out of funds that we had saved from prior operations. This is not sustainable over the long term, especially if we face another season of expenses for websites, insurance, or coaching certification without registration income. The HRLA, ALA, and CDLA will need funds to ensure the long-term viability of minor lacrosse in High River and Alberta. 

 As the season unfolds, we anticipate collecting additional fees at 3 other points throughout the season. When and how much those fees will be will depend on how much lacrosse activity takes place. We believe this is the fairest means of recovering the costs for the actual lacrosse players get to enjoy while minimizing the chances of having families waiting on significant refunds.
