COVID Refund Policy

Toombul DCC Refund due to interruption of season due to COVID 19

We all hope the boys and girls get a full season of cricket in. If COVID 19 disrupts the season, refunds will apply. Should the season be cancelled prior to commencement a full refund less costs already realized by the club will be refunded. If the season commences and 50% or more of the games are lost the refund shall be calculated pro rata based on the number of games played less costs already realized by the club. If less then 50% of the games are lost there will be no refund.

The club is fully aware of the current economic climate due to COVID 19 and are pro-actively reducing costs to enable our juniors to play cricket. As a club we realise the majority of our costs in the coming months will be administration and equipment costs. We thank you in advance for your understanding regarding our position with regard to refunds and we do hope we do not end up in the scenario of refunds due to COVID 19.

TDCC Refund Policy

The Juniors Refund & Fee policy outlines the conditions in which a player can request a refund of registration fees.   Due to the administrative overhead and impact on team management, refunds include a $20 administration fee.  The Toombul Executive Committee may waive this fee, at their discretion should special circumstances apply.

WITHDRAW BEFORE COMPETITION COMMENCES

If a player registers and pays and subsequently seeks to withdraw that registration prior to the commencement of the season, a refund of the amount paid minus an administration charge of $20 will be levied.

WITHDRAW AFTER COMPETITION COMMENCES

INJURY

If a player registers and pays and subsequently seeks to withdraw that registration after the season has commenced due to injury, a refund will be issued for the remaining missed games in the season at the rate of $10 per missed day of scheduled play.

CHANGE OF MIND

No refund will be given if a player registers and the season has commenced and the player is not injured, (that is, NO REFUNDS are issued in circumstances where a player is able to play but simply no longer wishes to play).

WET WEATHER

Any playing days missed due to wet weather/ground conditions will not be refunded.

TDCC CODE OF CONDUCT

The image and reputation of the Toombul District Junior Cricket Club is vital to its ongoing success and reflects the Club’s standing in the community. Our “Code of Conduct” reflects the standard of conduct required of our club’s members and officials as representatives of the Toombul District Junior Cricket Club.

Club members, officials, parents, and supporters are expected to abide by our Code of Conduct. 

PLAYERS

  • Play by the rules.
  • Never argue with an umpire. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the umpire during a break or after the game.
  • Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging of other players, or deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent, are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in cricket.
  • Work equally hard for yourself and your teammates. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you.
  • Be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition.
  • Treat all participants in cricket as you like to be treated.
  • Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor.
  • Cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition.
  • Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion. 

COACHES

  • Remember that people participate for pleasure and winning is only part of the fun.
  • Never ridicule or yell at a young player for making a mistake or not coming first.
  • Be reasonable in your demands on players’ time, energy and enthusiasm.
  • Operation within the rules and Spirit of Cricket and teach your players to do the same.
  • Ensure that the time players spend with you is a positive experience.
  • Avoid overplaying the talented plyers; all young plyers need and deserve equal time, attention and opportunities.
  • Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of all players.
  • Display control and respect to all those involved in cricket. This includes opponents, coaches, umpires, administrators, parents and spectators. Encourage players to do the same.
  • Obtain appropriate qualifications and keep up to date with the latest cricket coaching practices and principles of growth and development of young people.
  • Any physical contact with a young person should be appropriate to the situation and necessary for the player’s skill development.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion. 

UMPIRES 

  • Place the safety and welfare of participants above all else.

  • Condemn unsporting behaviour and promote respect for all opponents.
  • Emphasise the spirit of the game.
  • Keep up to date with the latest available resources for umpiring and the principles of growth and development of young people.
  • Your behaviour and comments should be positive and supportive.
  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

PARENTS

  • Do not force an unwilling child to participate in cricket.
  • Remember, children are involved in cricket for their enjoyment, not yours.
  • Encourage your child to play by the rules.
  • Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  • Never ridicule a child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performance and skilful plays by all participants.
  • Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities.
  • Respect official’s decisions and teach children to do likewise.

  • Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
