Rec Refund Addendum: For the spring 2021 season, due to the ongoing Covid-19 uncertainty, the following amendment will be in place.
Due to the current pandemic, for the spring 2021 season Arlington Soccer will offer prorated credits (or refunds) if the Rec season is fully or partially canceled due to pandemic-related problems.
The scheduled season will be as complete as possible, under the conditions allowed by the county, state and the Virginia Youth Soccer Association.
Rec activities will need to follow Arlington Soccer policies, which will be based on state, county and Virginia Youth Soccer Association guidelines and recommendations.
Because these policies may include social distancing, we cannot guarantee a full schedule of games, or any games, or even contact-based practice / play except as permitted.
Other changes to games and practices may also be required by Arlington Soccer for the health of our community, including staff, players and families.
The season will be considered complete if there is no pandemic-related cancellation of practices or the season for a minimum of seven weeks.
If there is a cancellation of practices after less than seven practices, families will receive a prorated credit (or refund) less a $15 administrative fee, based on a normal ten-week season (i.e: if the season were cancelled after four practices, families would expect a 60% refund, less a $15 administrative fee).
