COVID IMPACT – Rep and Elite Programs and Refund Policy

With the continually evolving Covid Pandemic, Rockwood FC cannot offer a definitive refund policy that covers all scenarios, keeping that in mind RFC does endeavor to always be fair to our members.

RFC is committed to providing opportunities for our athletes to reach their full potential.  In today’s environment, plans and programs can change in a moment. Your fees are based on a year round program.  Due to the investment made in your programs, prior to players stepping on the field, we cannot define an all encompassing refund policy.  In the event of a Covid disruption, know that RFC will carefully examine expenses to determine where pro-rated refunds are warranted.
