Spring Travel and Rec Soccer - Canceled
 

May 4, 2020

 

Dear WSA player families,

 

The Westlake Soccer Association (WSA) Board of Directors has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 spring travel and recreation soccer seasons.

 

While we were hopeful to be able to play an abbreviated season, the uncertainty over the coronavirus continues to pose too great a risk to our players and families and our leagues have canceled their seasons. We believe that this is the most responsible and practical choice at this time.

 

We are offering refunds to any players who request one with instructions on how to request a refund and the amounts being refunded provided below.

 

Consider Donating Your Registration Fees

 

While we are committed to issuing full refunds, WSA is not immune to the negative impacts of this pandemic. Many WSA programs are run at a “loss”—meaning that the fees we collect do not cover all of our costs. We have been very conscious about not raising fees for the last several years and we use the income from the annual Westlake Invitation Soccer Tournament (WIST) to fill any gaps.

 

While WSA is financially sound, cancelation of the 2020 WIST will have an impact on our financial future. If you are able, please consider converting your registration fee to a donation that will be used to fund programming this summer and fall, when it is safe to resume normal soccer activities, as well as help fund the annual WSA scholarship program given to graduating WHS Seniors.

 

If we do not receive a refund request from you, we will assume you intended to donate your registration fees

 

Please note: WSA is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation is tax deductible.

 

How to Request a Refund

 

To request a refund, please send an e-mail with the subject line “WSA Refund Request" including the following information to westlakesoccerinformation@gmail.com by May 31, 2020:

 

  • E-mail address you used to register your player(s)
  • First and last name of the player(s) for whom you are requesting a refund
  • Address where you want the refund check to be mailed 

 

Refunds will be issued in the form a check, payable from WSA and will be mailed within 2 to 4 weeks after the request is received. (Unfortunately, because of the way our registration system is set up, it is not feasible for us to refund your credit card or to credit your spring registration fees towards the fall season.)

 

Refunds for our Spring 2020 programs will be issued in the amounts indicated below:

 

  • Full Year Rec: $20*
  • Spring only Rec: $85
  • Spring only + Uniform: $120
  • Full Year Travel: $125
  • Spring Only Travel: $150

 

* As a reminder, players who registered for a full year of Rec soccer in the Fall received a substantial discount towards the cost of Spring

 

On behalf of the WSA Board of Directors, we wish all of you good health and a speedy return to normalcy.

 

Sincerely,

 

The WSA Board of Directors
