BYS understands that sometimes it is not possible for you to uphold your commitment to Spring Baseball/Softball and players may need to withdraw from a sport due to unforeseen circumstances. Registration fees are based on a variety of costs determined by the total number of players and teams each season. Since many of these costs must be paid in advance, player withdrawals still result in a cost to BYS. We have the following policy for refunds to accommodate families whose plans have changed while maintaining the financial responsibilities associated with each sports season:
No refunds will be given after the first date of scheduled games (Opening Day) for each particular Sports Program. No Refunds are given for late fees, donations, decal orders, special requests not honored, because of team placement, cancellations due to weather, or for a player being removed from a team for Code of Conduct violations by the player or the parents/guardians.
A 10% administrative fee will be charged for any written refund request made prior to team formations/drafts.
A 35% administrative fee (25% plus original 10% admin fee) will be charged for any written refund request made after team formations/drafts have been completed.
0% will be refunded to a registrant after the first date of scheduled games (Opening Day) for that Program.
Any request for a refund must be made in writing directly to our Secretary and approved by the President. Any request for refund that is submitted before Opening Day and if approved should not expect a refund until after Spring Break (around mid-March) to the end of March. All refunds are made via BYS business check, no refunds will be credited to any bank or credit card. For any potential refund requests (case-by-case basis) made after Opening Day, please allow 2-4 weeks for processing.
In the event of medical illness or injury prohibiting a registered player form participating in a sports program, these will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for any potential refund or credit. These cases will require Doctor’s note and/or medical documentation to support the medical reasoning.
A refund will be given when an Age Division and/or a certain number of players are canceled by BYS because of low enrollment or other circumstances.
NSF/Returned-Check Fee: A $25 service fee will be added to any NSF/returned check.
Balcones Youth Sportsis an all-volunteer organization. The Board Members donate countless hours to the organization and are committed to making BYS a safe and fun place for kids to play ball. As a member, you will be asked to volunteer time during the season. Each team is expected to work one-two concession shifts when their child is not playing. We will also need coaches, assistant coaches, team parents, field prep, trash pick up, scorekeepers during the season. Help us help you make the facility a nice place for children to play ball!
