2018 Finance Policy
2018 Junior Boys and Girls Registration Finance Policy
All fees must be paid at the time of registration. This will occur once a player has been offered a position in the squad after trials are complete. Registrations that are not accompanied by the appropriate fee will not be accepted and the position in the squad will be offered to another player. No player may play with the club until the appropriate age based registration fee has been paid. Registration payments will only be refunded as per the refund policy.
If planning a long-term holiday or unable to attend for an extended period, players/parents must advice the Coach or Team Manager prior to the start of the Season.
Registration fees can be paid by cash, EFTPOS, EFT, business account cheque (no personal cheque) and MasterCard and Visa credit cards. American Express and Diners Club cards will not be accepted.
In hardship cases the registrant should discuss their case with the Junior Director or Treasurer before registration. Their case will be considered and appropriate arrangements will be agreed upon and put in place if deemed appropriate.
Families registering more than one child will receive a 10% discount for additional players registered with the club. Note, that the oldest child is considered the primary registration and pays the full amount. No other discounts will be given – for example, due to a player’s inability to attend the whole season.
Volunteer primary coaches will receive a discount on fees paid for their child. The discount will be the full amount of registration for their child. Primary coaches with teams that train twice a week are able to have a 50% discount for the second sibling. No assistant coaches’ children receive any discount. The Chairman and/or the Treasurer can review on a case by case basis.
Volunteer coaches that don’t have siblings will be paid an amount of the full amount of registration of a child within their specified team. This amount will be paid in two instalments, one at the commencement of pre-season training and the second instalment at the end of the season.
Volunteer coaches are encouraged to attain a C class licence and the club will support the coach in that attainment by refunding one third of the coaching course payments at the end of each season over a three year period.

No refund will be paid to players that have accepted a position at another club after they have accepted and paid for a position at Adelaide City Juniors.
A full refund will be made to players if the player has not yet been registered with the FFSA under the following conditions:
- Injury preventing the player from playing
- Player/player’s family moving away interstate or overseas
- The team folds due to insufficient numbers
A partial refund is available to players who have played in less than half of the scheduled matches for the regular season due to reasonable factors beyond their control. Such factors might include:
- Injury preventing the player from playing for a period greater than half the season
- Player/player’s family moving away to another region
- Player/player’s family travelling interstate or overseas for a period greater than half the season
- The team folds due to insufficient numbers
All players must pay the full fee for the season at the time of registration and can only be refunded after the last match in which they participate.
The amount of the partial refund shall be the number of games not played in, divided by number of games scheduled in the regular season, times the club component of the registration fee. For example if a player did not play in 12 of 18 games in the season, and the club component of the registration fee was $700 (= $850 less association fees), the player would receive a refund calculated as:
12/18 x $700 = $467
- No refund is available to players who play less than half the season due to suspension.
- No refund is available to players have played more than half of the matches of the season. To play in a match is defined as being included on the team sheet for that game.
