Payment Policy

Policy

Players must be registered and pay the full fee or have a payment plan in place before attending the first practice or first game.  Player acceptance for any program is not considered complete until full payment is received and any balance from previous seasons is settled with United DFC.  Exceptions will be made for those applying to Kidsport or JumpStart, however the Office Manager must be contacted in advance.

Program Adjustments

Following Player Placements, players who are placed on a team which is different than what they had originally registered for will have their fees adjusted if the registration fee for that team is different than what they had originally paid.

Jersey Deposits

A one-time jersey deposit will be collected for each player in a program requiring United DFC owned jerseys.  Seasonal post-dated cheques will be accepted, or a one-time deposit will be kept on file and will be returned at any point in exchange for the returned jersey.  Players in programs which purchase their own jerseys (e.g. selected senior teams) or have jersey’s provided by a third party (e.g. Timbits) will not be required to pay this deposit.  

Partial Summer Season

If an individual knows in advance of registering that they will not be able to attend a complete season due to travel or work or other circumstances and declares such at the time of registration, United DFC does offer an option to pay for only a portion of the season. The portions of the season must be purchased in thirds; meaning an individual must purchase either a ⅓ or ⅔ of a season. Request must be received in writing (mail or email) by the Office Manager prior to player assessments. The calculation for determining the reduced fee will be as follows:

Reduced Fee for ⅓ of Season = (Administration Fee + SNS Fee) + (Full registration cost * 1/3)

Reduced Fee for ⅔ of Season = (Administration Fee + SNS Fee) + (Full registration cost * 2/3)

Financial Assistance Programs

Families applying for KidSport or JumpStart must submit a copy of their application to United DFC at the time of registration. These programs may not cover the full registration fee and families are responsible for paying the balance. Please note, that United DFC is not responsible for following up with the respective agencies to determine if the families are approved under the KidSport or JumpStart programs. The families are responsible to ensure they are approved and payment is received by United DFC.

If you are in need of financial assistance and have exhausted all options, please contact United DFC’s Office Manager to determine alternate payment options and possible club sponsorship. Proof of a family’s financial status may be requested at that time.

Sibling Discount

Sibling discounts are available for the 3rd and 4th sibling. The 3rd sibling will receive $35.00 off of their registration fee and the 4th sibling will receive a free registration (lowest registration fee of the siblings up to $300.00).

NSF Cheques

Cheques returned by your financial institution will be subjected to a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charge per our fees schedule below.

Approved Exceptions

Exceptions to the payment policy may be granted for special circumstances on a case by case basis. Reasonable payment options are available. Please contact the Office Manager to discuss. Executive Committee of the Board of Directors approval will be required.
