The travel deposit is an advance on the travel costs to attend a tournament. For every event, players are responsible to pay for their share of room, meals and ground transportation. Such travel costs can range from $250 per player to $500 per player depending on the event and location. We collect the travel costs prior to every tournament. The Travel deposit is non-refundable if the player commits to attend a tournament then backs out. If a player has been paying his/her travel costs and there is a balance at the conclusion of all of the tournaments, the academy will refund any remaining balance at the end of the season. Cost of transportation to the event, such as flights, is separate and the responsibility of the player.
