Dear Competitive Members,
BRSC has enjoyed seeing the smiling faces during our return to play. The health and safety of our BRSC family are at the forefront of our minds. Our coaches and staff have enjoyed seeing the players the past few weeks during training.
Many of you have asked if Baton Rouge Soccer will refund or credit dues and fees for the Competitive program. We want to confirm for our players and families that we are fully committed to offering alternative programming, other comparable services, credits, and refunds.
The Governor has extended Phase Two to July 24th. We will continue social distance training through Phase Two in hopes of advancing to small and full-sided games in Phase Three or Four. Our youth soccer governing body, the Louisiana Soccer Association (LSA) will continue to provide updates and we will keep you informed. Baton Rouge Soccer’s leadership is especially sensitive to the implications to players and their families. Likewise, it is imperative that we prudently manage our resources during this crisis to both allow for the refunds and credits, and ensure the continued operations of the club.
Credit/Refund/Donate Options for Members
The staff and the Board of Directors considered many variables and factors to develop a policy that is fair and reasonable for our Academy, Junior Competitive, and Competitive programs.
For Academy, Junior Competitive, and Competitive programs, BRSC intends to deliver all training and games paid for by its members. The BRSC credit/refund/donate options are:
• Pro-rated credit based on a portion of the season that is delivered (includes training and games). The credit is valid for 1 year towards ANY upcoming programming.
• 25% of registration fees are non-refundable (this does not include pre-paid team fees. Unused team fees may be credited or refunded).
• Pro-rated refund based on the portion of the season that is delivered (includes training and games).
• 25% of registration fees are non-refundable (this does not include pre-paid team fees. Unused team fees are refundable. There will be no refunds if we are able to deliver 75% of the Academy, Junior Competitive, or Competitive programs).
BRSC is a 501-C3 not for profit organization. Donations will go toward member services, players in need of assistance fund, outreach, etc. We encourage you to consult with your tax professional as to deductibility.
Anyone with extenuating circumstances should contact the office or program director.
We hope you and yours stay safe and well during this time.
Best regards in soccer,
