    If you choose to cancel your participation, we must first meet in person, receive written notice of said cancellation either via certified mail, overnight courier, or e-mail sent to info@fcbcanada.com (with confirmation of receipt from us), and you shall be subject to the following cancellation fee: In case of an physical injury suffered by the BARÇAACADEMY PLAYER under the BARÇAACADEMY PROGRAM schedule, he/she will then have to provide doctors documentation to submit a cancelation to the program. If a player misses an extended period of time due to illness or injury, we will be able to allow them to recover some of the time missed, provided they can show a valid doctor’s note (this policy will mean that players who miss 5 or more trainings will be allowed to make-up 60% of their missed time). If the BARÇAACADEMY approves the cancelation, then player will not have to pay the upcoming payment instalments or receive a refund for the amount paid. If the player simply does not show up by any reason to the BARÇAACADEMY program, there will be no refunds for the amount paid or equipment purchased by the player. You are signing up for the whole FCBESOLA program and agree to pay the full amount. Certification of Participants Health: By signing below and/or tendering any portion of the BARÇAACADEMY to us, I certify that the participant does not have any condition or disability that would create a hazard for you or others participating in the BARÇAACADEMY. I agree to inform you via certified mail or e-mail sent to fcbescolatoronto@bcnsportscanada.com (with confirmation of receipt thereof from you) at the time I tender my first payment of the BARÇAACADEMY (or at such later time when I become aware of such a condition) of any existing physical or mental illness, disability or any other condition for which the participant may require medical attention or special accommodation during the BARÇAACADEMY season. We make no guarantee to be able to accommodate the participant for such condition during the BARÇAACADEMY, and we make no representations or warranties regarding special accommodations or handicap accessibility.


    Please note that this is a season long commitment, no refunds will be provided after the start of the program. If you complete the Winter+Summer season registration, no refunds will be provided after October 22nd, for either season. A pro-rated credit will be provided if the player sustains a long term injury that prevents him/her from training until the end of the season. If a player registers and later decides to cancel before the start of the program there will be a cancellation fee of $350.
