All requests for refunds must be made in writing; verbal cancellations/refund requests will not be honored. The following refund policy applies to all camps or clinics listed in the camp guide unless otherwise specified:

If a camper cancels their registration for a Shelley Smith Soccer School camp or clinic, the following refund policy applies:

Residential/Team and Early ID: Cancellation and/or request for refunds received at least two weeks prior to the start of camp may receive a 50% refund, minus a non-refundable administrative fee.

Full Day/Half Day and Elite ID Camp: Cancellation and/or request for refunds received at least 72 hours prior to the start of camp may receive a 50% refund, minus a non-refundable administrative fee.

If the cancellation notice is received after the above-said deadlines, 0% of the paid balance will be returned.

NOTE: No refunds are available for camper cancellations of Development Clinics, Strength & Conditioning Seminar, or Goalkeeper Clinics.
Exceptions to this policy stated below:

Medical Circumstances/Injury: If there is a medical circumstance occurring before/after the above said deadline(s) and a medical doctor, states it is unsafe and/or will do more harm to the player to participate from a pre-existing injury and/or surgery or an injury sustained recently, therefore preventing the camper’s participation - a note signed by the medical doctor can be sent to camp director and the following refunds are applicable:

Residential/Team and Residential Early ID: 50% refund applied, minus a non-refundable administrative fee.

Half Day Camp: All but $10 will be refunded, minus a non-refundable administrative fee.

Full Day Camp: All but $15 refunded, minus a non-refundable administrative fee.

Elite ID Camp: All but $15 refunded, minus a non-refundable administrative fee.

Camp Credit: Campers will also have the choice to apply their registration to a future camp (camp credit) to a future camp of their choice; camp credit must be used within one camp season year of application (i.e. Summer 2018-Summer 2019). Once placed into camp credit, you have one calendar year to choose a future camp of your choice; there are no refunds available once placed into camp credit. However, if you have chosen a future camp, you sustain an injury leading into the selected camp, and the medical circumstances/injury policy can be applied (see above) we can apply an extension to a future camp. Should this happen you have one camp season year to use this credit.

Gift Certificate: If you registered using a gift certificate, there will be NO refunds, but you will have the opportunity to transfer to the next day camp offered by requesting to be put into camp credit – which would need to be used per camp credit statute of limitations.

Carolina Soccer School holds the right to refund the full amount of the registration fee to campers under certain circumstances (i.e. inclement weather/natural disasters causing travel cancellations, death in the family, illnesses in the family causing travel issues).

Carolina Soccer School reserves the right to change and/or cancel any camp at any time for any reason, at which time a full refund will be honored.
