INJURED PLAYER 9U - 19U TEAMS

When a player is injured and the condition affects the player’s ability to physically compete or train with the team, the following guidelines will be used by Norski SC. Parents are encouraged to reach out to the DOC and/or Board of Directors to discuss the extent of the injury and the financial commitment for coaching, tournament, and/or club fees.

  • Minor injuries: Such as sprained ankles, an illness that last days or weeks will not receive a refund for coaching fees, games/tournaments, and other club fees.
  • Short Term-Severe: Club will use the number of games scheduled to determine the percentage of the season missed. The percentage of games missed is based on the date of injury and final clearance from the doctor.
    • 50% games missed equals a 25% refund (each tournament day counts as one game).
    • 75% of games missed equals a 50% refund.
  • Severe (Out for the remainder of the year): Requires a notice from the doctor that states the player should not participate in soccer for the remainder of the season.
