General Athletic Policies
Interested in Coaching Your Child’s Team?
We are always looking for volunteers to coach in our many athletic programs. During registration in our system, you will have the opportunity to express your interest in coaching.
Mutual Buddy Request System
We offer a buddy request system in some of our athletic programs. The guidelines are sport-specific, so please refer to each program for more details.
Coach and Team Requests
In order to create a positive experience for every member, we do not allow coach or team requests. It is Mercer Island Boys & Girls Club policy to make teams fair and even. We do this by creating new teams each season. If you were hoping to stick with the same team or coach, we are thrilled you had such a great experience the previous season. But we ask for your understanding as we switch it up every year!
Sponsoring a Team
Every sports season, we offer the ability to sponsor a team or a league. Team sponsorship allows you to place your player’s names or business name on the back of sports jerseys.
If for any reason you wish to cancel your child’s enrollment in a program, please provide written notification by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All refunds requested two weeks or more before the program begins will forfeit a $25 deposit. Within two weeks of the beginning of the program, only a 50% refund will be granted. Once the program starts, no refunds will be granted as all program fees have been used to fund the activity. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
