Registration cut off date is:

If you have multiple children, you will receive a multiplayer discount. We also have payment arrangement schedules avail. Please speak with Janea Dennis ASAP, so that payment arrangements can be made and turned in, on or before cut off date. Receipts will be given immediately for each cash, certified check, and/or postal money order payment and once payment has posted for credit, debit, or check etc…

7. If we started late or had an unforeseen financial issue and don’t have full payment in on-time, what will happen?

HKC is committed to helping families as much as possible, so it will be imperative that you let Janea Dennis know as soon as possible, so that they can make every attempt to help. However, you must have paid greater than 50% of payment due for assistance before cut-off date, or player will have to wait to participate in games “only”, until full payment is received, as their uniform can not be ordered- NO EXCEPTIONS

8. If for some reason our family needs to discontinue participation in football season, will payment be refunded?

You may only receive full refund if payment if request is made up to 8 days prior to cut off date for uniform order. On the 7th day prior to cut off, the following applies:

Refunds will not be in full, as part of the payment goes towards the uniform cost.

After cut-off period, you will not receive any refund. As your child has been accounted for in insurance, uniforms, and field usage costs.

Medical conditions that require clearances should be provided prior to cut-off date. If you have concerns that your child may need medical clearance, please notify the Team Registrar, as your player will not be able to participate until the clearance is received.

Unforeseen medical conditions during the season: Although unfortunate, a refund can not be given, as player is accounted for as being part of the team.

If for ANY reason, player is permanently removed/suspended from the team after cut off date, forfeiture of ALL funds will take place.
