Payment Schedule & Refund Policy

Player Development: Commitment Agreement
All of us at Softball Factory are committed to help and assist each and every player we see across the country. We spend lots of time and resources to travel to as many cities around the United States as possible. We exert this effort in order to find players who need our help and guidance along the path to college softball. We are committed to give you, the player, and the parents as much of our knowledge and time as possible to ensure your journey through softball is smooth and successful.

Our National Tournament Teams and training events are comprised of players who are selected from National Tryouts up to six months in advance. Once a player is selected and she accepts to play and represent Softball Factory, it is important to understand that she is committing 100% to her team and must be ready to compete and train. Our National player selection process allows us to choose players across the entire U.S.A. You are competing with players from all 50 states for a spot on one of our prestigious teams. If you are selected and commit to play both Softball Factory and your teammates are counting on you.

Remember, the Softball Factory program will enhance your abilities and experience to better prepare you for college softball. College coaches expect you to be prepared to play at the collegiate level. Play hard and have fun!

If you are required to make ongoing monthly payments to finalize your registration fees to attend a Softball Factory National Tournament, Training, or Recruiting Event (including any fundraising efforts that you may be seeking for additional support) you are committed to adhering to the payment plan that has been created for you by Softball Factory staff.

Player Development/Exclusive Program: Refund Policy
For all Softball Factory Player Development events (national team and training) and the company’s Exclusive College Recruiting Program, a commitment fee* is required to secure participation. This commitment fee is non-refundable and non-transferrable. For player cancellation in excess of 30 days from the event (including injuries, weather related occurrences, personal emergencies, schedule changes, and travel delays) any payments made prior to the event, over and beyond the commitment fee, are transferable without penalty to a future Softball Factory event, as long as the event is within the same calendar year. For all cancellations that occur inside 30 days from the event, any payments made prior to the date of cancellation will be forfeited and may not be transferred to another event, or refunded, unless the player provides a doctor’s note clearly stating that she is physically unable to perform at the event. If a doctor’s note is provided any monies paid, other than the commitment fee, will be transferable to a future Softball Factory event within the same calendar year. Player fees will not be refunded.

*For all events priced $0 – $1,000 the commitment fee is $200. For all events over $1,000 in price the commitment fee is $500.

Softball Factory All-America Pre-Season Tournament:  Refund Policy

If a player cancels outside of the 30 days all monies are transferable other than the $200 commitment fee. If a player cancels within 30 days of the event, they must provide a Doctors Note to be allowed a transfer (other than the $200). If they cancel within 30 days of the event without a Doctors note they can’t transfer.

Under Armour Softball Factory National Tryout, College PREP Program and Interactive Video Program: Rain Policy

If your session is officially rained out:

  • You have the option of applying payments to another Softball Factory event.
  • You may have your money refunded in full within 60-90 days.
    Please note: Even if it is raining in your area, you will need to report to the field unless contacted by Softball Factory.
    An event will be considered an “official rainout” when the entire event is cancelled in full.

If the following occurs all players will be eligible to attend another comparable event at no additional charge:

  • No softball activities are able to be completed on the field (i.e. field is ruled unplayable and only batting cages or bullpen are able to be used due to conditions)
  • Our scouts are unable to develop a complete report on the players based on limitations caused by the rain
  • Our scouts are unable to develop enough of a report for national team and training camp selections to be made

Refund Policy

For all players participating in an Under Armour Softball Factory National Tryout, College PREP Program, or Interactive Video Program, all fees are non-refundable. Fees will be transferable to another event if the player notifies Softball Factory of her intent to cancel at least 48 hours in advance of the event. If you are required to make ongoing monthly payments to finalize your registration fees, you are committed to adhering to the payment plan created by the Softball Factory staff.

Under Armour Softball Factory National Showcase – Rain/Cancellation Policy – No Refund Policy Clarification.

The following statement is on the entry/waiver form and pertains to all teams when they register for our National Showcase Events:

  • “the Team understands and agrees that there will be no refunds for any reason.”

All participants must and should understand that from time to time that due to weather and/or other issues out of the control of the Softball Factory, that events may be unable to be played from start to finish. When these unpredictable events occur, teams will not lose their entry fee and deposit paid, but, rather the following policies will apply:

  • If the event is postponed, the team can request that the entry be moved to the new date or they can request a credit towards a future event.
  • If the event is cancelled prior to the start of the event, all teams will receive a full credit towards a future event.
  • If the event is cancelled or postponed prior to a teams ability to play in an expected amount of minimum games, 60%, scheduled, they can opt to play on the new date or receive a 40% credit towards a future event. Games counting are not determined by innings played, but rather by games started.
  • If the event starts and due to scheduling the team is unable to play any games and the event is cancelled or postponed, they can opt to play on the new date or receive 50% credit towards a future event.

If the event is cancelled or postponed due to the event not reaching a minimum amount of teams to be played and it is cancelled:

  • You have the option of applying payments to another Softball Factory event.
  • You may have your money refunded in full within 60-90 days.

Option for use of credit:

  • Teams may use the credit for the same team or organization to register at a future event.
  • Teams may relinquish their credit and transfer the credit to another team.
  • Teams may divide the credit to be used by an individual(s) on the team to use for entry into individual events sponsored by the Softball Factory.

Only the team contact on record may use, designate or relinquish the credit. Such requests must be in writing.

If an event is cancelled or postponed, the housing partners of the Softball Factory will handle notification and reconciliation with the hotels as is included in their contracts with those properties. Groups that book hotels outside of the housing partners will be responsible for any applicable hotel policies on their own.

10-Day Cancellation Rule
If a team cancels between 4 and 10 days of an event, for any reason, they will only receive a 50% credit towards a future event.

72-Hour Rule
If a team cancels within 3 days of an event, for any reason, they forfeit all rights to any refund and/or future credit. Exceptions to this rule can be made due to acts of God.
