The mission of Newtown Soccer Club is to provide a safe and positive environment within which the children in our program can learn, develop, and most importantly enjoy their soccer experience. To that end, we have provided this Code of Conduct which we expect to see consistently employed. It is a written reminder that whether playing at a Recreational, Travel or Premier level, soccer is supposed to be fun for the children, and that in addition to technical and tactical development, the concepts of sportsmanship, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness and good citizenship are taught and demonstrated by players, coaches, parents and spectators. It is our belief that we can be competitive without crossing the line of decent behavior, and we will not tolerate any conduct which is detrimental to the players, the community or the sport.
Newtown Soccer Club reserves the right to make decisions regarding players, coaches, trainers and spectators as it relates to Code of Conduct violations including removing said person from participating in any club practices, events or games where club teams are participating.
NSC SPRING 2020 OPEN BOARD MEETINGS AT THE NEWTOWN COMMUNITY CENTER IN ACTIVITY ROOM A 6:00PM
REFUND REQUESTS FOR SPRING 2020 SEASON WILL NOT BE HONORED AFTER JUNE 15, 2020. YOU MUST REQUEST PRIOR TO THAT DATE TO BE CONSIDERED
Once registration closes, any and all registrations at that point are considered LOCKED and refunds will not be issued.
Changing one’s mind, carpooling, and scheduling conflicts are not valid reasons for a refund. If your child is “not liking it” or if there is an issue with a teammate, parent or coach, the league will attempt to rectify your situation. However, this is not an acceptable reason for a refund. If a person so chooses to leave Newtown Soccer Club on their own accord after the start date, a refund will not apply.
Newtown Soccer Club is a non-profit organization run solely on registration fees. The Registration fee is used to provide every player a referees, professional coaching, field upkeep, equipment, insurance, CJSA fees and numerous other administrative items behind the scenes. Many of these costs are incurred before the start of each season. Therefore, Fall fees inlcude these costs for both Fall and Spring seasons
There may be instances where there are extenuating circumstances. For these unique instances, a request in writing must be sent to the respective Director and each item will be evaluated individually by the Board to determine if a refund applies. If a refund is allowed, the amount could be adjusted to account for the CJSA fee, timing of the refund and other costs. In most cases if there is a refund, it will be issued once the full season is completed.
All Board Decisions are final.
Children who move out of town after registration but before the season starts will be charged the applicable processing fee and issued a refund for the remainder of their payment. Children who move out of town during the season will receive a prorated refund (minus the applicable processing fees) based on when in the season the child withdraws from the program.
Please take this into consideration as you plan your child’s schedule!
* Fall Rec fees include Spring fees as well (Spring is essentially free). If your child is not playing during the Spring session,please let us know so we do not roster them for the Spring season.
