TEAM PLAYTRI LATE PAYMENT POLICIES

Monthly dues are due on the 1st of each month, and will be considered late after the 5th. Once a family has been notified of an outstanding late balance, they will have one practice to complete payment before the athlete will no longer be able to attend practices. Once payment is completed, the athlete will be able to resume attendance. Questions regarding payment and policy should be directed to morgan@playtri.com.

If an athlete will be missing an entire month of practice, he or she can subtract a quarter of the session dues (or one month's payment) from the total owed. This must be arranged with Playtri Youth & Juniors staff in advance, NOT after the payment has been made. There are no credits for missed days or weeks of practices, afterwards or in advance. We thank you for your understanding.
