President Message Rep Refunds
The below has been communicated to all Rep players on June 16, 2020. Please check your email, inbox and spam for this important message.
"Further to the announcement regarding the cancellation of our 2020 season, this email outlines the process of issuing refunds to our members.
As a non-profit organization we do not have the financial resources to absorb all the costs which have already been deducted from each registration.
The OMLA has a number of expenses for each player registered each year including but not limited to insurance, website hosting, bank/credit card fees, equipment purchases, maintenance and storage costs that must still be covered for the 2020 season. We also have fees that need to be paid to our governing body, the Ontario Lacrosse Association. For each registration, the Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) takes roughly $40.00 to go towards marketing, lacrosse magazine, registration fees ,insurance and credit card payment fees.
As such the OMLA board has decided to enact necessary, although unpleasant financial measures. These measures help ensure that we can sustain our organization through this year and next by withholding a small administrative fee of $25.00. This fee helps us to pay for the administrative costs of the 2020 season, ensuring that our association will be able to operate in 2021 & onward. To date these fees have not been waived by our creditors.
We know that the cancellation of the 2020 lacrosse season is disappointing news for many children in our community who were looking forward to playing the game they love. The Board of Directors share that same disappointment. At this time all we can do is look forward with optimism to seeing everyone on the floor again in 2021 for a season which is sure to be full of fun and excitement. We also hope to run fall and winter programs, information will be up on our website and social media platforms.
While our goal is to have all refunds processed by June 30th , this is a manually intensive process by our volunteers, so we ask for patience as we work through the registration cancellations.
If you have any questions please direct them to the President, Paul Vivian at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your understanding, we hope to see everyone again soon."
