Here you will find all the information about the policies and procedures that we follow at OP FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE.
OP FFL: Friend/Coach request policy.
During the registration process parents can enter a friend request for their son or daughter to be with another player. We do our best to match up those friend requests however it is not always possible and there are no guarantees.
All leagues of the OP FFL have an experience-based team formation process, ensuring parity between teams in every age group and ensuring new players lineup alongside the most experienced. Friend requests are honored (where it does not disrupt league parity) and the goal is for everyone to have a blast.
The only guaranteed way to keep all friends together in the league and with a specific coach is to enter the team into the PRO League. The PRO League is not just for the most experienced teams, it is also for the teams that just want to stay together season after season, the PRO League now offers Gold/Silver and when possible a Bronze division.
OP FFL has a no refund policy in which NO REFUNDS will be issued after the registration has been completed. In the event of a player cancellation request all orders are subject to a $30 admin and processing fee per player. The fee is accessed to cover the cost of the leagues insurance liability for the season for each player playing in each league location. Once a cancellation has been processed the fee will be deducted from the initial registration fee paid and a credit for the remainder balance will be issued to your account for a future use. Please note credits DO NOT EXPIRE. After the cancellation is processed, an email will be sent to the email address on file providing you with the instructions on how to redeem.
Refund requests for injury or illnesses will require documentation and is at the discretion of the OP FFL. Please be advised that although the player has documentation from their doctor the $30 cancellation fee still applies.
OP FFL reserves the right to merge divisions or cancel any division based upon low enrollment and or conditions beyond our control. In the event of OP FFL having to cancel a division due to low enrollment (this does not include the merger of divisions), the participant registered would be eligible for the following options, a credit on file that does not expire to be used for another season ie spring, fall, winter, sports camps.
Also, if registration was paid via a credit on file & the season is cancelled due to Covid or low enrollment of a division the credit goes back on acct. If the credit used required additional funds to be paid via Credit Card only the additional funds paid will be refunded back to the CC on file. For example, parent had a credit on file for $120 and the new registration fee was $140 which required a $20 cc payment. The original credit of $120 goes back on account and the additional $20 is refunded back to cc on file.
CREDITS ON ACCOUNTS DO NOT EXPIRE
Lastly, if OP FFL is forced to postpone or cancel a season already in session due to COVID or other circumstances beyond our control there will be no REFUNDS issued. Accounts will be pro-rated based on how many weeks were played and a credit will be placed in your online account
Please send all cancellation or transfer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
