Refund and Payment Policies

If the Event Partner cancels/postpones the event: 

  • Refunds will be issued ASAP via working within the regulations of my school board. Reason(s) for cancellation will be disseminated to coordinating individuals representing participating teams/programs. Refund amount will be full registration fee minus 10% (10% covers the $5 RECF processing fee and any miscellaneous handling fee).

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

  • Refunds will not be given to teams cancelling less than a week before the competition. Refunds will be sent out around 6 weeks from the event who cancel in due time. If teams registered and paid through robotevents we must receive the funds from robotevents first, this some times takes 3-6 months. Refund from robotevents will deduct 10%.
