REFUND POLICY

> 100% of fee paid less $25 admin processing will be provided for any reason until July 14

> Starting the Saturday of the first scheduled games, and only through Sunday night following the 3rd weekend of games, players may receive a prorated refund less $25 admin fee or a  discount code for the following season to be used during or prior to the close of the Open Registration period of the next season, if they are physically deemed unable to continue playing by a doctor.

Following the Sunday of the 4th weekend of games, no refunds will be provided for any reason, with the only exception those who had notified us earlier, but are still awaiting doctor’s proof.


UNIFORMS
Registration fees DO NOT include the Sterling Soccer Club uniform or other equipment needed or required to participate.

> If you HAVE NOT played in Sterling Soccer Club (formerly SYSA) since the Spring 2018 season, you will need a new uniform to participate due to the fact we updated our branding and uniform colors in the Fall of 2018.
 

> Uniforms can be purchased at Sterling Soccer (47100 Community Plaza #128, Sterling, VA 20164). Players U11 and above will need to wait until the club assigns numbers prior to purchasing.


SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Thanks to the generous donations of fellow member families, community members and corporate partners, Sterling Soccer Club is able to offer a limited number of players discounts for players qualifying for free or reduced lunch at their public school or with similar proof of financial hardship from a government agency. You should have already applied for this aid separately before beginning this registration process, and will need the personal discount coupon code supplied by our office.  The number of players we can accommodate is directly tied to our scholarship fund balance (see below if you can give).  


VOLUNTEERING IS EXPECTED
We cannot operate a small not-for-profit community club without the help of volunteers. As part of this registration, you will be expected to select a volunteer position. If you cannot volunteer under any circumstances, we offer the option of a $50 "Volunteering Opt-Out Fee" to cover the club's cost of hiring people to do additional work. If you do not select the opt-out fee, and yet do not volunteer, you will be sent an invoice for the $50 opt out fee and required to pay it (or volunteer) prior to registering with us in the future.

 

*Special Incentive for Coaches that coach and complete Safe Sport training: Head coaches are offered 100% off and assistant coaches 50% off of the registration for one child per team that they coach for the following season's registration after they complete a full season of coaching and complete the Safe Sport training. These may only be used during any pre-sale and/or early-bird registration periods to receive these deep % discounts. The Head Coach must verify satisfactory participation of the Assistant in order for the Assistant to receive the offer. If there are two Assistants deserving, they will each receive 25% off instead of 1 receiving 50% off. 


PLEASE DONATE SO OTHERS CAN PLAY
Can you afford to donate the amount of a registration fee so less fortunate members of of the Eastern Loudoun community can play the game they love?
 

> If so, as you complete this registration process, you'll have the opportunity to donate to the Sterling Soccer Club Scholarship Fund, and we encourage you to choose the "Give One" level at least so we can fund a 40% scholarship for at least one player in need. If you can afford more, we'll take it! We have yet to collect more in donations than we have qualified requests, so every dollar we come up short comes out of the general fund.


> We are a registered 501(c)(3) not for profit, so your donations are fully deductible. 100% of funds donated to this fund using this form will only be used to reduce the registration fees and/or uniform costs of other players in need.
 

> If you or a company you're associated with can do more to support our community, please contact any board member at your convenience so we can share our vision and work together to make Sterling Soccer Club a true community club.

 

Family Discount

 

If you are registering more than one player in your family, you will receive a $10 discount on each child's registration fee after the first registered child.  In order to claim this discount, you MUST register all of your children at the same time.

This form will walk you through the first child, but will then offer for you to add players just before the final payment step on the Review Page. On that page there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player".

Players with an approved scholarship discount code are not eligible for this family discount program.
