NON-PAYMENT OF FEES
All fees must be paid in line with the terms listed on the Registration System.
If a member is facing financial difficulty and cannot pay their fees, they should notify the Club Finance Manager immediately at email@example.com.
It will be at the discretion of the Club as to whether the player is eligible to play whilst fees are in arrears.
If a member does not pay their fees in line with the agreed timescales (including any extensions granted), the outstanding monies will be considered Bad Debt and the details shall be passed onto a Debt Collection Agency.
WPFC shall also notify Football Brisbane and/or Football Queensland of the non-paying member.
Any members who do not pay their fees in full will receive a lifetime ban from WPFC. They will be listed as Debtors on our balance sheet which will be published at the AGM.
NO TEAM AVAILABLE FOR A PLAYER
A full refund will be given for all club membership/registration fees paid. This only applies if WPFC cannot allocate a player into a team for the current season.
No refund is offered for any uniform or merchandise purchased by a player who then wishes to leave WPFC for any reason.
