Registration Fee Refund Policy*

YMCA of Columbia Youth Sports recognizes that, from time to time, players may need to withdraw from a sport due to unforeseen circumstances. Registration fees are based on a variety of costs determined by the total number of teams and number of players registered on each team. Because many of these costs must be paid in advance, player withdrawals still result in a cost to the YMCA.
