Fees

Refunds of fees is subject to several matters, not limited to:

  • Player status, and
  • If activity has commenced, and
  • If a request for deregistration has been received

If the Player has paid in full and has NOT commenced any football activity (including training/trials, grading, trial games, organised games etc.) and has NOT been made active, a full refund (subject to any handling fee stated and any transaction charges) will be made.

If the Player has commenced training/trials or played any games, any refund will be subject to the following reductions:

  • Any governing body fees (including Football Federation Australia and Football Queensland), inclusive of insurance levy
  • Any costs associated with the Player playing kit for the year (to be retained by the Player)
  • Any costs associated with the Player’s participation in the season to date (see below)
  • Any transaction charges incurred at the point of registration

Costs associated with the Player’s participation for the season will include:

  • Costs incurred by the Club to purchase general shared equipment for the current season
  • Costs incurred to maintain the facilities (buildings and fields) to support football, inclusive of any staff, contractors and utility / statutory costs
  • Costs incurred for match day events the Player has participated in
  • Costs associated with coaching education and reimbursements

The assessment of the extent of cost of Player participation to be retained by the Club will largely be dependent on the time of the season the request is made and will be assessed by the Treasurer.

Players are not entitled to refunds following the cancellation of training sessions or matches due to weather conditions or other external factors (e.g. Government restrictions on activities).
