PATRICK MURPHY SOFTBALL SCHOOL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Previous Camp Balance / Camp Forwards
DO NOT register online if you are using a forward from a previous camp, please e-mail patrickmurphysoftballschool@gmail.com once registration has opened for the camp or clinic your camper would like to attend. An e-mail must be received prior to the camp or clinic filling up. Again, your camp balance does not reserve or hold your spot for future camps or clinics, so If you are using a forward from a previous camp, please e-mail patrickmurphysoftballschool@gmail.com once registration has opened AND prior to the camp or clinic filling up.

Camp Refund Policy
In order to be compliant with NCAA rules, please understand that any payment you make towards camp is non-refundable. If for some reason a camper cannot attend, please inform Kate Harris (patrickmurphysoftballschool@gmail.com) two weeks prior to the camp or clinic date and we will gladly forward your camp balance to be used towards for a different Patrick Murphy Softball School Camp or clinic. If an individual cannot attend due to a medical reason, please provide a doctor’s note to patrickmurphysoftballschool@gmail.com and the balance will be forwarded, if the cancellation is made prior to camp. Finally, no refunds or balance forwards will be issued upon expulsion or voluntary withdrawal from camp.

Confirmation Email
You will receive a confirmation e-mail within 24 hours of registering online for camp. Be sure and check your junk box, as sometimes the confirmation e-mail can get lost there. Please understand, the e-mail address listed on the application is where the confirmation e-mail will be sent, so please double check that the e-mail address is entered correctly before submitting camp registration form.
