No refund unless DSL is unable to place your child on a team. Your submission of an online registration signifies your intention for your child to play in DSL on the team to which he/she is assigned.
In the event of season cancellation due to circumstances beyond our control, there is no guarantee of a refund. If the season is cancelled before games begin or before the season can be completed, refunds will be made available to all parents requesting them. The amount of refund will be determined by subtracting the costs, obligations and processing fees associated with organizing the season. A full refund would not be available due to these costs.
Soccer is played in almost all weather conditions. Cancellations usually result from thunder or lightning in the vicinity or dangerously heavy rainstorms. Games are generally not rescheduled due to our relatively short playing season and the large number of scheduled games. No portion of registration fees is refundable as a result of inclement weather. (See Severe Weather Policy)
On Saturday mornings, DSL officials monitor the weather continuously to determine the need to cancel games. (At all other times, referees have this responsibility.) In the event of cancellations, DSL officials will attempt to notify coaches and participants in a timely manner using various methods including posts to our website and, if appropriate, changing our voicemail message; however, the phone system has limited capacity for incoming calls. At the fields, referees may be informed directly or by sounding an air-powered horn to suspend play and clear the area.
When in doubt as to whether a game is on or not – SHOW UP. Do not assume that because earlier games were canceled, your game will be.
But safety is still priority one. While league officials may suspend or cancel games, in any situation: Do not hesitate to remove your child from any weather condition you feel is unsafe or inappropriate. You will not be penalized for any actions you deem necessary.
The City of Dublin has instituted a non-resident fee applicable to any participant residing outside the City of Dublin or Dublin City School District boundaries. Each non-resident participant will be assessed a $150 fee per season by the City of Dublin. St. Brigid of Kildare school is not considered a Dublin school for this purpose. The City processes registrant addresses through a GIS database to verify compliance. Do not rely on your mailing address to determine residency. Any payments made to DSL may be used to meet the city’s requirement.
Dublin City Residency Checker (Click Here) will help determine residency status. Type Road as “Rd”, Street as “St”, etc. Yellow or green results qualify as residency. If your home address returns a white address or no result, it is not a Dublin address. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for clarification.
