FEE & PAYMENT QUESTIONS 

How much to pay? Click HERE to see the fee per level.

When is payment due? Payment – paid personally OR through financial aid – is to be received by Goody’s Ball Hockey no later than May 15, 2022. Payment received by this date ensures that a spot is reserved for the participant. Submission of the registration form alone does not finalize the registration process.

How do I pay my fee? Click HERE to payment methods accepted per level.

Do you offer financial aid? While we do not offer financial aid ourselves, there are a few programs that could cover the registration fee, depending on your eligibility for coverage. We can accept payment on your behalf from these organizations, in confidentiality. Click HERE for more details on financial aid available.

Does Goody’s Ball Hockey offer any family discounts? We are pleased to extend to you our family discount if the following criteria is met:

  1. You are registering 2 or more kids from the same immediate family (brothers/sisters, not cousins etc.)
  2. All are registered in any level except Men’s A, Men’s B, Men’s C and Women’s

If you meet the above criteria, the total family discount is in the amount of $20.

For example: Suppose you register 2 kids who meet the above criteria and they are both in the U5 level. Total to be paid regularly for U5 is $212.75 (includes HST). Without the discount, we would expect $425.50 ($212.75 X 2). With the discount, we would expect $405.50 ($425.50 – $20 family discount).

What is Goody’s Ball Hockey’s refund policy?

A few very important things to note first:

  1. Contacting us with a request shall take place in the form of an email to info@goodysballhockey.com You MUST provide: your full name, the participant’s name and level, the reason you are requesting a refund, full mailing address including city and postal code, and telephone number we can call to finalize the request. A request cannot take place in the form of a conversation with any of our staff.
  2. The date you have contacted us with a refund request is the date used to count back the number of sessions which have passed. If a session for the level you are requesting to be removed from falls on the same day you make a refund request, this session is considered a session which has passed, regardless of what time we receive the refund request. Attendance of a session is an irrelevant factor.
  3. Under all circumstances, we DO NOT refund the 4% charged by the credit card merchant provider as this is NOT collected by us.

If you are requesting a refund BEFORE May 15, 2022, an automatic $15.00* admin fee will be charged against the total amount you paid.

If you are requesting a refund between May 15, 2022 and the day before the first session, an automatic $15.00* admin fee + $15.00* for the t-shirt & water bottle fee will be charged against the total amount paid.

If you are requesting a refund between the day of the first session but before the fifth session begins (i.e. we must receive the request before the fifth session for your level – see point #2 above), you will be charged at an automatic $15.00* admin fee + $15.00* t-shirt & water bottle fee + $15.00* x # of sessions that passed (see point #2 above).

Any refund requests received after the fifth session for your level has begun cannot be processed. We apologize but no refunds will be issued.

If you believe that your request involves extenuating circumstances that fall outside of this policy, please submit a refund request explaining these circumstances. Each request will be reviewed by the appropriate personnel, who will make the decision as to whether a refund will occur.

* These fees are before taxes (after taxes please include 15%)
