Instinct shares the apprehension related with the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic particularly as it relates to youth sports.

Clubs and families were caught by surprise by the pandemic and worked together to get through it last season. We feel like we should have a plan, so every party knows what to expect in case the season is officially cancelled again due to the COVID.

We intend to have a normal season, meaning our Wild teams are expected to travel to qualifiers and/or the Tour of Texas, but, due to the uncertainty of the situation, we are presenting a budget with tournaments in DFW only. We will reassess the situation later, and if it is safe, we will add out of state qualifiers and/or the Tour of Texas.

It is impossible to prepare for every scenario, but these are specific things we have decided to do for the 20-21 season:

  • We developed budgets that included travel for Wild teams, but decided to offer a basic package with all DFW tournaments
  • Extra costs to add out of state qualifiers and TOT have been calculated
  • If COVID is under control and team is interested, we will add travel
  • Goal is to have a normal season
  • Developed budget to recognize what can be refunded/credited at anytime of the season, so every family knows what they have at risk, and there are no surprises.
  • Trigger for refund/credit  is USA-NTR officially cancelling the season
  • If tournaments are cancelled, we intend to continue to offer practices unless we are not allowed.
  • Expenses that are refundable, non refundable and recoverable
  • Renegotiated with some vendors and coaches to prepare for situation
  • Tried to spread payments an extra month and keep amounts lower at the beginning
  • As payments are made, money is allocated to nonrefundable expenses, recoverable expenses and the difference is refundable
  • Recoverable expenses are refundable but amount may vary pending on what the club recovers ( for cancelled tournaments and travel)
  • The NTR tournament schedule will be officially published in late August-early September so team schedules will be finalized then.
  • There are NO refunds/credits unless the season is cancelled, so if you commit to a team, you are expected to participate.
  • To be eligible for a refund/credit, family must be up to date with payments.

– Tournament entrance fees, practices courts, coaching expenses, uniforms and equipment.
– Coaches travel expenses for REGULAR season. (airfare, transportation, meals, hotel, if teams add travel)
