One of the questions that we hear often is 'How much will this cost"?
We understand that travel teams can be expensive, and we want to do everything we can to make this affordable to everyone who wants to play. In fact, in our ten years of Team NorCal, we have never had to deny an opportunity to a kid to play based on finances.
Many of the new travel teams recently established in the area have been created by people whose primary focus is profit. Many travel teams ask for up front fees of $7,000 or more, and make you pay for every tournament year-round, whether you can make it or not. We think parents need to be very careful about the investments they make.
We will also provide income opportunities for Team NorCal players to work our summer camps, clinics and Fall Ball Programs, so that they can earn Tournament Fees.
When a player accepts a spot on a Team NorCal team, they pay a Team Fee. This fee is non-refundable. Tournament Fees, paid by players to participate in various tournaments, can be credited against a future tournament (minus a $25 administrative fee) if we are able to replace a player with a replacement player from the approved roster, and we have not already paid the player or tournament fee to the tournament. Replacing a player is never guaranteed, and as the tournament gets closer becomes increasingly difficult. Once the tournament summer season begins, there are no refunds for any tournament, except in the case of injury certified by a medical professional.
Our Refund Policy on Fall Ball and Summer Camps is different. We will allow for a full refund, minus a $25 administrative fee, for any player that requests a refund sooner than 7 days prior to the start of the camp (14 days prior in the case of overnight camps, and a $75 administrative fee). We will not provide refunds for no-shows, or for people who cancel inside the 7 (or 14) day window for any reason since we will have already committed to staffing and field commitments for the camp.
Summer Camps Cancellation/Refund Policy:
All refunds will be sent within 30 days of request and approval.
