PARTICIPATION

You confirm you are eighteen (18) years old or older.

REGISTRATION

Registrations must be completed online at the MAN v FAT Soccer Program website: [www.manvfatsoccer.com.au]. Individuals will need to pay the registration fee in full at the time of registration. Registrations will not be taken over the phone or in person. Individual registrations will not be confirmed until full payment of the registration fee has been received. The registration fee is non-refundable across all Leagues.

Registration to a League does not guarantee individuals immediate involvement in the League. Confirmation on involvement will be sent to individuals via email. Where involvement is not immediate, individuals will be placed on a waitlist and will be contacted directly in writing when places in the League become available.

PAYMENT

Upon registration into the Program you accept that the League registration fee and the monthly player subscription payments will be taken out of your chosen scheme. Your nominated bank account or credit card will be debited the monthly player subscription payments fees in the amounts set out in the online registration process on the MAN v FAT Soccer Program Website: [www.manvfatsoccer.com.au]. By default, the monthly subscription payment will commence immediately from the date on which you are assigned to a team and will continue henceforth. To cancel or amend your monthly player subscription payments, you are required to contact UWA Sport directly in writing at [email protected].

In the event that your monthly subscription payment(s) fail, you will receive notification via email of any overdue payments and be required to pay the outstanding invoice immediately. If additional administration is required to follow up your subscription payment(s) a fee of $20 (incl GST) will apply. If, after 7 days, the outstanding payments have not been settled, your involvement in the Program will be suspended. Participation in the Program will recommence once payments have been received by UWA Sport. If you repeatedly fail to meet your payment obligations, we may terminate or suspend your participation in the Program and you will receive written notice to this effect.

You are not entitled to a refund of any monthly player subscription fees already paid. Cancellation of your participation in the Program does not limit our ability to recover from you any unpaid or overdue amounts validly owed to us before you cancelled your involvement.

PRICE STRUCTURE

UWA Sport reserves the right to review and implement new pricing structures for the Program. UWA Sport will provide you with advanced written notification in the event that prices do change.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS
