With only grading games played anything under 60 would be a joke

Guaranteed this will send a couple of clubs broke. They have already spent the money.

Interest on debt, staff, facilities if leased, contracts.

You would be looking to leave Geelong if they only refunded 25%. That is disgraceful

Geelong must be pocking its members money. There was 18 rounds and finals to go.

Southern Pen 50%. Looks like that's around the average. Anything above is a well managed club and below..... 25% well you can only assume that they inconsiderate and selfish or if they do need the money badly mismanaged

How you can not refund minimum 65% is beyond me. Play 9, out of a total of 27 games (9 grading, 18 regular season). so surely you are refund 2/3 of your fees.

For some VC teams they played less than 9 games.

50% is reasonable, the club has paid court hire for the team from October through to mid-March, so there's 5 months of court hire not used.

Any club offering only 25% is clearly looking after those who take money from the club rather than those families who put in.

Not a financial expert, but if all the clubs go broke the players will have to go somewhere. So surely "new" clubs would pop up and start afresh. Obviously players and families will be losers in not getting acceptable refunds, but will want to continue playing. And if court hire is in low demand, staffing levels decreased and other expenses reduced then the new season may be cheaper, purely hypothetical of course.

Maybe you should add Geelong have opened up Sunday training and putting on an alternative Friday night program. But you are absolutely right, if you unhappy don't come back. We are and will return. Cheers.

Smart clubs would give 30-40% back and 10-20% discount for next year to encourage a return. Smarter clubs would give parents the option to redirect to fees for families who may not be able to afford next year - 20% back, 20% discount, 20% donation.

Those Vic clubs still need to pay rent on their facilities that many of them run on behalf of Council. Council and State Gov given some support, but there are some big bills to pay with no income from competition.

Looks like Elthan only has to pay 50%. I guess that what all clubs will do other than Geelong who are still training. Surely all clubs have similar expenses

Not really comparing apples with apples. Tigers fee $700. Dandy $600 McKinnon $550. Just got them from the websites. Geelong and Sandy fees not on their sites. Relax.

Bulleen have offered us 35% off next seasons fees. No offer of a refund. I will be considering what I will do next year now and asking for my money back.

Nothing to do with breaking your kids heart or all mighty dollar, what a dumb comment. You pay your fees at the start of a season to play a season of Basketball. If that cannot be provided to you then you are entitled to a refund, its law. Some parents are not as well off as others so every penny would count to them. If you want to donate your fees to the club so be it but a part refund of at least 60% min should be offered

Competition is the word. Certainly some refund is required. Grading really counts?

Do a chargeback if you paid with a card.

Fees mostly cover court hire for training, about half the sessions for the season going right back to tryouts were completed, 50% is fair.

Wow,the lack of understanding by comments on this forum regarding costs is unbelievable. Clearly not one person who has made comments is actually involved with an association as a volunteer and has knowledge of how community sport operates.
