A minimum of $250, as a nonrefundable deposit, is due upon registration for all season program fees. Fees include a nonrefundable deposit of $150 for mini skills camps and  $50 for all add-on programs.

  • Refund Policy

Partial Program Fees will only be eligible to be refunded to those who drop out of the program during the first 25% of the season. In addition, a portion of the fees will be considered to be non-refundable (the $250 deposit). Other non-refundable portions include any fees that EMSC incurs due to the athlete enrolling (RMD, USSA, Etc.). The remaining fees will be prorated for the time the athlete has participated.

If all training options must be cancelled for at least 3 consecutive weeks due to COVID19 between the first scheduled program training day and March 1st, 2022 members are eligible for a partial credit for future programming. After March 1st, no COVID19 related refunds will be issued. Partial credit amounts will be determined based on the percentage of programming that took place prior to the cancellation and vary depending on each program.

Governing bodies (such as Eldora, Boulder County, CDC, USSA) may place additional COVID19 related restrictions on our operations. As well, competitions could be changed or canceled. These restrictions and cancellations are outside of the control of LERT Programs and will not be a cause for refunds.
