Cancel Policy

For all ASA Coach Education Courses

Effective June 24, 2016 the ASA Coaching Education Course Refund Policy will be that once a candidate registers for the course, that candidate is scheduled to attend and the hosting association has made proper arrangements for instructors, classroom/field space, materials to accommodate that candidate.  

For courses registered in GotSoccer, no refunds will be issued, however, the fees may be rolled over to a future course within 1 year of the original registered course date. 

After one year, that roll-over expires and may not be used.

If a candidate registers for a course but attends only a portion of the course and then leaves, there will be no roll-over applied.

If a candidate registers and attends the majority of the course, but only misses a small portion of the course, at the discretion of the State Technical Director, the candidate can attend a future course to make up for the missed portion at no additional fee.

For courses where registration occurs in the DCC, if a candidate cancels more than 3 days prior to the first day of the course,  a $25.00 admin fee will be charged but the remaining fee will be refunded.

If a candidate doesn't show up for the course, or fails to cancel at least 3 days prior to the course, there will be no refund. 

Candidates will receive a full refund for a Coaching Education Course that is cancelled by ASA.
