Can my child play up a year or down a year?
Players are required to register in their designated age group. Anyone that thinks their child would benefit from playing up due to their skill/ability they would need to get approval in advance from our technical staff. Please email email@example.com with your request to have a technical staff member assess your child.
Players are not typically approved to play down a level unless their were exception circumstances. For these types of situations we ask that you email our General Manager, Sara Orrell firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and full details.
My child wants to play with their friends. Can they request to be on the same team?
Guelph Soccer understands the desire for players to want to play with their friends. With that in mind, we accept one player request. This request needs to be one to one player reciprocated requests (ie. both players must have requested they be on the same team as the other). To review our full request policy please click here.
What is the refund policy?
Guelph Soccer will accept refunds 30 days prior to the start of the program. All refunds are subject to a $30 player administrative fee. To review our full refund police please click here.
