LSC Refund Policies

Travel Team Tryout Fees:
Travel team tryout fees are non-refundable. Exceptions to this rule include:

  • If a player moves away from the LSC area.
  • If a player is not placed on a travel team (i.e. the player is offered a player pool position or is told there is no room on the team).
  • If LSC is unable to field a team for the player.
In these situations, LSC will retain a $25 administrative fee and refund the balance of the travel team tryout fee.


Refund Policy for Travel Team Players:
The success of our travel teams is dependent on the players who make up each team - and their commitment to the program. After teams have been formed and rosters have been announced, LSC will then proceed on behalf of each team to assign coaches, assign practice fields and times, complete all player registrations, as well as complete all state, league, and tournament registrations. Accordingly, we expect that all players and parents will follow through with their commitment to the program by completing all required paperwork and paying all fees in a timely manner.

Because withdrawals can result in the unraveling of a team, our refund policy regarding travel teams is stringent and non-negotiable. After rosters have been announced, requests for refunds will be treated as follows:

  • Player withdrawal after rosters have been announced will result in no refund of the travel team fee.
  • Player withdrawal after the team's season fee due date for any reason will result in no refund of the team's season fee.
  • Player dismissal due to a violation of the LSC Code of Conduct will result in no refund of the team's season fee.
  • Player withdrawal due to a certified medical reason will result in a partial refund/credit. The amount retained will only reflect the cost that the club has incurred on the player's behalf. A written statement from a non-parent medical professional must be provided.
  • Player withdrawal due to the player moving out the LSC area will result in a partial refund/credit. The amount retained will only reflect the cost that the club has incurred on the player's behalf.
LSC will not refund travel team tryout fee or team fees for any other reason.


Player Transfer Fee:
Any player who wishes to transfer to another club during the season (from the time that rosters are announced until the completion of the season) will need LSC to complete a Player Transfer. The player must submit a $100 player transfer fee prior to LSC completing the Player Transfer.


Camp, Clinic & Program Withdrawal/Refund Policy:

(Applies to Advantage Programs, Street Soccer Camps, Middle School Clinic & Pick-up, High School Preseason Camp, Adult Winter League, and Guest Player Winter Training)


Requests for refunds will be treated as follows:
  • Prior to the start date of any camp or clinic or program, a player withdrawal due to a certified medical reason will result in a refund. LSC will retain $25 of the payment for administrative costs. A written statement from a non-parent medical professional must be provided.
  • 8 or more days prior to the start date of any camp or clinic or program, a player withdrawal for any reason (excluding a medical reason) will result in a 50% refund.
  • 7 or fewer days prior to the start of any camp or clinic or program, a player withdrawal (excluding a medical reason) will result in no refund.
  • After the start date of any camp or clinic or program, a player withdrawal for any reason will result in no refund.
Our outdoor camps and clinics are held outside with no option for the use of an indoor facility. Thus, we rely on safe and (at least) tolerable weather. If a camp or clinic day is cancelled for 1 day due to inclement weather, no refund will be given. If a camp or clinic day is cancelled for 2 days due to inclement weather, one session will be made up on a "rain date", or registered players will be issued a one day credit to attend another camp or clinic.

Indoor soccer programs are held indoors and therefore not often subject to cancellation. However, in the event of severe road and/or weather conditions or an unforeseen closure of the facility, then we may cancel a session. Our aim is to make a cancellation decision by 2pm each day. Should there be a cancellation, Lightning Soccer Club will email all participants using the email addresses provided in the player's online registration form. Due to facility availability and pre-scheduling requirements, LSC will make up only one day of cancellations in a given session (regardless of the number of cancelled days.)
