No refunds will be issued for any reason other than one which has been clinically diagnosed by a medical professional.  Before a refund can be issued, MFA must receive verbal confirmation or written documentation from a medical professional indicating that the athlete can no longer participate.  In all cases a $25 administrative fee will be deducted from the amount of the issued refund.  

Due to the high demand of our camps and clinics, pro-rated amounts cannot be issued.
