Volleyball Alberta (VA) Refund Policy
We have updated our refund policies to be fully transparent and ease any concerns should there be new COVID-19 related cancellations or other force majeure circumstances (event or circumstance that is specified, unforeseeable, or at least unpredictable, and that is beyond our control).

In the event of a force majeure circumstance cancellation, our priority while processing refunds will be focused on individual program registrations and then team registrations.

The Volleyball Alberta refund policy will be updated as programs/products are announced.

Membership Refund Eligibility

Membership registrations are valid from the date of purchase to August 31st (annual membership type). All memberships are upgradable. All memberships are non-transferable. All memberships are non-refundable.

Membership refund requests will not be granted if VA or our facilities institute, voluntarily or non-voluntarily (imposed restrictions), additional COVID-19 measures after cancellation deadlines or partway through a program.

*Volleyball Alberta (VA) and Volleyball Canada (VC) will consider refunds for duplicate purchases due to a system error.
