However, should a player become injured and not be available to continue the season, XVA will not pursue the remainder of any amounts due. Still, any request for waiving of fees due to injury must be made in writing to: Xtreme Volleyball Academy.
Refunds will not be given to players who miss a practice (club, beach and/or academy) due to vacation, illness, school, etc.
Refunds will be given if XVA cancels the season due to unforseen circumstances.
