We do understand that the Covid-19 will affect some players’ participation in the T4 program due to health & schedule issues.  For those who are unable to participate we have three options available; 1. Partial Refund all but $150 & Full Reversible Uniform  2. Full amount applied to future NYBA programs (Camps, leagues, training, etc.) 3. Donate as a tax deductible 501 c 3 donation

At the time of the Shut down, it was the Thursday of the first tournament weekend.  We had already played a pre-season game in March Madness league & began practicing. Unfortunately, the timing of the organization needing to shut down was at a bad time as a majority of expenses for the T4 program had been paid.  In order to have uniforms & warm-ups ready for first game, they were already purchased.   The first 4 tournaments of the season were also paid in advance, as well as fees for practice facility rental.  The tournament directors & facilities are going to work with us to recoup some of the payments if we are unable to make up the time/events this summer, but we are making up these events in July/Aug.  Up front expenses are needed to have uniforms ordered, coaches in place, practices already set up, rosters broke down, & tournament fees paid when kids showed up to play that weekend. Those were all expenses that had to be paid up front in order to provide the services for the T4 program.


With that being said, it is impossible for us to issue any full refund request for the T4 program.  We are a small non-profit organization that has no public funding, so although issuing this refund could mean an uncertain future for our organization, we want to make sure we do what is right for each family at this time.  Thank you for your understanding
