If a Coach/Mentor completes registration for the event and then chooses to withdraw or not attend:

We are unable to offer refunds for this event. Because of this, teams should wait to make payment until they are certain they can and want to attend while being mindful of the payment due date. Any team unpaid by the payment due date will be removed from the registered team list without notification.

If a team has to withdraw from the competition after payment is made, SCORE may consider transferring the registration fee to another SCORE-hosted event.
