WLL Refund Policy

Wakefield Little League Refund Policy

General Refund Policy
In an effort to help stabilize team rosters and control disruptions caused by player withdrawals, the following refund policy has been established by Wakefield Little League ("WLL"):

No refund requests will be honored if received after April 15, 2023.

All refund requests must be made via email to the Wakefield Little League Treasurer ([email protected]).  In your request, please list the following information:
-The Player's Name
-Parent Name
-Division in which the Player is registered
-Reason for refund


Injury Refund Policy
If a player is injured during a practice/game during the regular season and is forced to miss the remainder of the season, a refund will be provided within one month of the end of the season for the pro-rated portion of the season missed. 
Note: Due to costs incurred to start the season, the refund will be no more than 50% of the Spring 2022 registration fee paid.

COVID Related Refund/Credit Policy
Wakefield Little League, in accordance with state and local guidelines, plans to hold the Spring 2023 season. This includes delaying the Spring 2023 season into the summer (similar to the 2020 season), if needed. The following COVID Refund/Credit policy will apply for 2023:

Full Refund
A full refund will be provided (minus a $3 administration fee WLL incurs upon registration) if we are unable to hold a season due to state guidelines (e.g., no draft takes place/no team assignments are made/no uniforms handed out).

Refund due to Delayed Season
If the Spring 2023 season is moved to Summer/Fall 2023, but a player decides not to play, the player will receive a refund in the amount of the registration fee paid (minus a $3 administration fee WLL incurs upon registration). Refunds will be processed at the end of the Summer/Fall 2023 season.
Note: Families must notify Wakefield Little League of the decision not to play by the announced cut-off date. 

Partial Credit to 2024
If the Spring 2023 season is interrupted and not restarted, a pro-rated portion of the Spring 2023 registration fee will be put toward the Spring 2024 season. For example, if half of the season is played and then stopped, 50% of the paid Spring 2023 registration fee will be applied to the Spring 2024 season. 

Players graduating out of baseball (e.g., 16 YOs) will receive a pro-rated refund within 1 month of the official cancellation of the season. 

Please note that due to costs incurred to start the season, the credit will be no more than 50% of the Spring 2023 registration fee paid (e.g., if only 25% of the season is played, the credit will be capped at 50%). 

Note: The above policies are guidelines that Wakefield Little League will follow. Understanding that we are operating in unprecedented times, there may be scenarios encountered that are not reflected in the above policies. Please know that the Board of Directors will work with the families of Wakefield Little League to find a fair and equitable refund/credit should circumstances arise that are unique to a particular family. 
Note: Refunds/Credits do not include Late Fees incurred for registering after the cut-off date.
Note: At NO point will any refund will be given if the player or their relative has been dismissed or suspended due to unsportsmanlike behavior or not abiding by WLL Code of conduct.
