Example of a Prorated Refund
If a player in U12 cancels their registration on October 5th, their refund would be calculated as follows:
Prorate for Remainder of Season: Oct (26 days), Nov (30 days), Dec (31 days), Jan (31 days), Feb (28 days), Mar (31 days) = 177 days left in the season.
No. of days left in the season (177) divided by total number of days (198) in a complete season multiplied by 100.
177 ÷ 198 x 100 = 89.39%
Prorated Fees for the season= Registration fee - less fixed fees (including RBC and Northern League fees), multiplied by prorate (89.39%) minus Administration fee
