Injury Policy

Unfortunately, injuries are a natural occurrence in a contact sport such as hockey. As a result, refunds will not, and cannot, be given for injuries.

Refund Policy

By registering for this tournament, you and your team agree to all waivers & statements on this registration form. Should you cancel prior to January 30, 2016, you will receive 1/3 of your total registration fee back. If you should cancel after January 30, 2016, no refund will be given and all monies paid will be forfeited.

Weather Cancellation Policy

Tournament directors will make all decisions on ice and weather safety. The WIF Pond Hockey Tournament is not liable for your team’s travel, such as, but not limited to air travel, lodging expenses, auto rental, and personal auto travel. If the event is cancelled prior to February 20th, 2016 due to weather or ice conditions, your team has two options:

  1. You may hold your team spot for the 2017 WIF Pond Hockey Tournament
  2. You may receive 25% refund of the registration fee back.
