Hello Cascade U16 Families, we hope you are all doing well. We look forward to working with your players again as soon as possible! We are still working on summer plans and hope to offer some options - please stay tuned!
We wanted to give you an update on the refunds we will be issuing via check within the next few weeks. Unfortunately the Region was forced to cancel all tournaments. We will be receiving further guidance from the Region with in the next week. USAV, however has put in place approval for clubs to begin offering opportunities with some strict guidelines. WA State directives supersede USAV so we will continue following WA State directives, but be prepared to begin when able by following the USAV Guidelines
,. PSR Directives AND any other requirements put in place by the Cascade Board.
IMPORTANT: Please note you must click on the link at the bottom of this message to confirm address before you will receive a refund.
The staff was able to secure refunds on unused practice space, cancelled tournament fees, and travel hotel costs (including coach & chaperone costs). The per player amount of refund comes out to $525.00.
Unfortunately, the rest of dues cover fixed-cost expenses including uniforms, equipment, coaches, admin & staff, ref & coach training, tryouts, insurance, taxes, membership fees, and more.
This is an unprecedented time and the Board is taking steps to assure our non-profit club can survive. We rely on clinics and summer programs to contribute necessary operating expenses and it’s not clear yet when we’ll be able to resume these activities. Luckily, we've built up a reserve to sustain us in case of emergency, so we are confident we will be ready to resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
We could have used our reserves to enable a larger refund, but given the uncertainty of the environment the Board felt it necessary to err on the safe side. That said, the Board voted to allow families access to that additional amount upon request -- just let us know if that is what you want and we will refund the additional amount.
Alternately - if you are able to contribute to help reduce the impact on our reserves, we appreciate those of you that choose not to receive a refund. No action is required if you do not want to receive any level of refund - if we do not receive the ADDRESS CONFIRMATION form from you, we will keep the money and put it toward our reserves and please know that we greatly appreciate this.
