Worthington United 94 Cancellation of Spring Soccer Season
by posted 04/30/2020

Update 6/2/2020: Refunds were mailed this morning. Please allow 5 business days to receive them. 

 

 

Update 5/19/2020    The first set of refund checks for Worthington United has been mailed out. This is proving to be a much more labor intensive job than we first envisioned. We are revising our estimate of completion of refund checks to be mailed out by the end of May. 

 

 

Dear Worthington United 94 Families,

First and most important, I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe. WYB Worthington Soccer which includes Worthington United is a community soccer program dedicated to the well-being of our participants and consider all of you as part of our soccer family. If there is something we can do to help you in this time, please reach out to our staff so we can try to help.  

As the Leagues begin to cancel their Soccer Spring Season, it brings more clarity to our situation. WYB and Worthington United 94 staff have been working diligently to ensure that as each new development in the State and soccer mandates that started in early March, we had plans in place to adapt.

In that context, WYB and Worthington United 94 believe that it is in the best interest and safety to cancel our Spring season. Until this point, we had hoped to return to the fields in some fashion, but this was just not meant to be. Worthington Soccer and WYB will be issuing refunds and a discount code for future soccer programming.

WYB is a not-for-profit organization. All fees that we collect from you are paid out in various capacities to be prepared for the Spring season. Tournament fees, field rentals, staff, scheduling, league fees, equipment and insurance requirements were paid out in anticipation of the Spring Season. This was done so that as soon as the season started, the participants could hit the field running. As such, there are many expenses that WYB will not recover and are not able to provide a full refund for the Spring season.

WYB and Worthington United 94 will be refunding to each participant on file, 65% of the Spring only portion collected in preparation for the season provided the account is paid in full at this time. This reflects the cost of many of these non-recoverable items that have already been paid. The WYB Administrative Director will begin issuing checks for each participant on file to the guardian of record.  We have to issue checks because the credit card processor does not accept refunds after 90 days of the last use of the credit card on record. Since many of your payments were done back in January and early February, these payments fall outside of the 90 days. This check run will be payable on May 15, 2020.  

WYB and Worthington United will also be offering a discount code in the equivalence of $125. This code will be able to be used for any returning player to the Worthington United program. That code will be communicated after acceptance into our Fall program and will be able to be used for our Team Camp held in late July.

On behalf of myself and our staff, thank you for entrusting your participant with us. We dedicate ourselves to fulfilling our mission of having the most affordable soccer club, with the highest caliber of staff. For future programming, if you need financial assistance to participate, please contact us as we want to provide every participant a chance to play. If you wish to donate your refund to our mission, please contact us at worthingtonsoccer@gmail.com.

Thank You

Michael Hendricks

WYB Director of Soccer
