Can I request my child be placed in a group with a friend or teammate(s)?
Our placement system groups players with other players of similar ability and experience. Some factors that go into placing your child into a group include: age and previous CGSA Camp/Academy experience. The Clint Greenwood Soccer Academy programs include several activities to help kids get to know one another, and create a welcoming environment for them to build friendships. Because of our desire to advance every player, we cannot move players to different groups unless recommended by their coach.
Where do I find the cancellation/refund policy for the program I'm signed up for?
Go to our Terms of Service page. There are no refunds unless player is seriously injured and maybe won't be back playing anytime soon. All our cancellations policy states the funds used to purchase a program with CGSA gets forwarded to the next program the student would like to attend.
DAILY CONTINUUM F.A.Q.
Does my child get a grace period if he/she doesnt attend the allotment of sessions?
CGSA does not allow extra time for a student to attend the entire # of Continuum Sessions that is stated in their contract. There are only 2 current Packages that have a set # of sessions handed out to the student. Bronze Package is alloted 4 sessions in a 1 month agreement. If your child has only attended 3 out of the 4 then they will not get extra time to attend the 4 sessions that a Bronze Package holder is offered. The Continuum has sessions in 4 different cities of Southern California. Simi Valley, Ventura, Santa Clarita, and Arcadia | Temple City. Therefore in regards to the question of having extra time to finish the alloted # of sessions even though they have plenty of opportunity to attend other venues and catch up with the Package either Bronze, or Silver Package.
The program I want to attend is sold out, is there anything I can do to get in it?
If the camp you wish to attend is full, please register for the wait list. If a spot opens up you will be notified.
My player is missing the last day of camp, what should we do?
