The St.Albert Minor Football Association is a non-profit organization.  The Association strives to maintain the lowest possible fees and ensures that our members receive the highest level of football programming possible.

The Association incurs an administrative cost for each player including, but not limited to: player insurance, equipment, first aid supplies, uniforms, and team expenditures.  It is because of these costs that SAMFA adheres to a strict refund policy.

To receive a refund from the Association, the member/parent must fill out the Refund Request Form completely, within the specified time constraints.

Refunds of partial fees may be made as follows, and only upon the return of equipment:

  • Less $50.00 Administration Fee (prior to August 15, 2019)
  • Refund of 50% of registration rate (prior to September 10, 2019)
  • No Refunds after September 10, 2019
  • Refunds are provided only after all equipment is returned to SAMFA.

Withdrawal due to an injury will be subject to a $50.00 Administration Fee, plus a pro-rated discount based on the number of games played by the team, and will only be considered with a Doctor's note.

To inform SAMFA that a player is dropping out and to seek a refund, please contact both the Treasurer and the Divisional Registrar.  The Refund Request Form must be completed in full and returned via e-mail to our Registrar.  (Refer to our Contacts list).

Please note:  The timeline for processing refunds will be 4-6 weeks from the receipt of the Refund Request.


It is the responsibility of the parent(s) to “immediately” notify both the SAMFA Registrar and Treasurer of the fact that a player is dropping out (for whatever reason). Parents must immediately make arrangements to return SAMFA equipment and pick-up the equipment deposit and refund cheques.
