Refund Policy **NEW 2021**

York Curling Club

As a non-profit facility, the York Curling Club (YCC) relies on membership fees as its primary source of revenue to fund its operations year over year. Annual operating budgets are established based on projected registrations. Many of the club activities that go into making YCC a successful entity are the result of volunteers who oversee the business operations of the club. COVID-19 and the restrictions imposed, has resulted in a change on how the club must manage their refund policy.

Policy Statement

Upon receipt and processing of an applicant's registration and placement on the membership registration list, it is the position of the York Curling Club that there are no refunds of membership fees, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Exceptional Circumstances

The following exceptional circumstances will result in adjustments to the refund Policy.

  1. If circumstances result in a delay in opening or early cancellation of the curling season the following refund policy will apply:
    1. If the season does not start a full refund will be provided, however, depending on the club financial circumstances, a sustainability fee may be applied for members to retain their returning member status when curling resumes.
    2. If the curling season starts and circumstances result in a closure for the season, the following refund formula will apply:
      1. If closure occurs during the first 4 weeks of curling, the refund will be the dues paid, less the capital fee (currently $50) less the administrative fee (currently $75).
