*Refunds will only be given for PSA mandated suspensions. Anyone removed from programs for intentionally or repeatedly disobeying policies will not be refunded.
*Please be aware that joining the sledge hockey program means you are joining a team and requires commitments beyond just attending the weekly program. The team plays league games against Calgary Junior sledge hockey teams in Calgary and Edmonton on weekends throughout the season (3-4 weekends). The team typically plays in at least 2 tournaments each season: Kindersley Tournament- end of November & Matt Cook Cup (Western Canada tournament)- end of March. In order to take part in these events each year, all members of the team must help with fundraising efforts. Each family should expect to volunteer approximately 10-20+ hours per season (varies depending on roles with the team). Please speak with program coordinator Stephanie if you have any concerns or questions about this. Please note that these league games and tournaments may not happen this year but there is still an expectation to volunteer and fundraise as the Government of Alberta sport sector has advised us that COVID restrictions with sport may change throughout the season. Therefore, we are planning for the worst but hoping for the best when it comes to sport opening back up more in our province.
