Foothill Hoops & COVID-19

Spring Updates and Upcoming Events

UpdatedFriday March 27, 2020 byFoothill Hoops.

Dear Foothill Hoops Families,

 

First and foremost, we hope that all of our members, their families and their loved ones are staying safe and healthy.

 

As we face difficult and uncertain times, we wanted to address all of our Foothill Hoops members - current, past and future members. At the moment, our events are postponed until further notice. While we are hoping for a speedy turnaround and looking to get back on the courts as soon as possible, we also want to make sure we do this in a safe and responsible manner. We need to fulfill our Mission providing a well organized, high quality youth basketball program that emphasizes fun, learning, confidence building, and character enhancement to families of all income levels within a safe and friendly environment.

 

Currently, our Spring league is postponed until we know we are safe to get back in the gym and back to our practices and games. For current Spring league members, please be rest assured that you will receive the eight week season that you signed up for, regardless of when that begins. We will not simply cut the season short and jump back where we left off. We are currently looking to merge the Spring into the Summer season, if and when that is safe to do so. 

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding in this manner, and we hope to see you on the courts soon. Please stay safe and healthy!

 

For current Spring league members who are unable to participate during the later Summer months and need to cancel their registration altogether, please read below for more information as well:

 

We want to remind those wishing to cancel that Foothill Hoops is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that primarily relies on registration fees to keep us operating. We are strongly encouraging anyone asking to cancel that they consider making a donation or accept an account credit rather than request a refund, as too many refunds would be detrimental to the operations of our organization. To put things bluntly: too many refund requests may drive the organization out of business.

 

We kindly ask members who wish to cancel that they please consider one of the options below:

 

Option 1: Donation of your Spring Registration Fees

Donating your Spring registration fees to Foothill Hoops is completely tax-deductible

We are a federally recognized, 501(c)3 non-profit organization

Donations will help us sustain our operations as a business during these tough times, provide financial support to our staff, and ensure that the organization continues to provide our programs to the community in the future.

 

Option 2: Full account credit + Cancellation Fee Waived

Accepting a full account credit puts the entire amount that you paid back into your Foothill Hoops account.

This also waives the $25 cancellation fee, (as stated in the Refund Policy) as a thank you for your support during these times.

Account credits do not expire, and can be used towards any future Foothill Hoops program (seasons, camps, or clinics)

 

Option 3: Donate a portion of your Fees, and the remainder as you choose

Donate a percentage of your fees (50% for example), and the remaining amount can be refunded or issued as an account credit

Any remaining amount issued as a Foothill Hoops account credit does not expire

Small donations in any amount will help our organization greatly - supplies, equipment, and helping support our staff who work hard for the kids and the community.

 

We strongly encourage our members to accept one of these options, and help us sustain our operations. Since 2003, we have been dedicated to providing programs emphasizing Fun, Learning, Confidence Building and Character Enhancement. We have been proud to serve our community and these young athletes for almost 20 years, and we ask that you please help the organization impact the community for many more years to come.

 

Thank you
