Club Fee Info

Due to the overwhelming uncertainties caused by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, a number of changes have been made affecting the club fee.

Club Fee Suspension

The club fee will be temporary postponed for all members who join for the 2020 - 2021 season due to the COVID-19 situation. The club will not charge the club fee until there is more certainty regarding the possibility of physical meetings, the status of school buildings for the 2020 - 2021 school season, as well as the status of the 2020 - 2021 VEX EDR competition.

Although the club will not charge the club fee immediately at the beginning of the new season, all joining members should have the expectation and know that they will be capable of covering the club fee once it is issued, as well as have the understanding that the club fee, once it is issued, will be mandatory.

How much is the club fee?

Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming uncertainly of the COVID-19 situation, the ACL VEX Robotics Club is unable to give an exact amount for the club fee at this time.

However, the range of the club fee should not fall above $200 - $350*.

Once the club fee is issued, it will be a certain amount. All joining members should have a comprehension and understanding of the possible range of the club fee and know that they will be able to cover it prior to joining.

Past member discount

The ACL VEX Robotics Club may or may not be providing a discount for the 2020 - 2021 club fee to past members who also paid the 2019 - 2020 club fee. If provided, this discount would probably be within the range of $50 - $100. Whether or not this discount will be provided depends on many factors and will be decided at a later date.

Any discounts provided will non-transferable between individuals.

Refund Policy

Under certain circumstances, the ACL VEX Robotics Club may provide a full or partial refund of a member's club fee at its discretion. However, the ACL VEX Robotics Club has no obligation to provide a refund in any form at all and may refuse to do so for any reason. This includes members who are kicked out of or otherwise disciplined within the club due to their own actions and behaviors. Club members should not join having the expectation of any form of refund or recourse.

*The ACL VEX Robotics Club reserves the right to modify or change the amount of the range for the club fee at any time, and the actual club fee is not bound by the estimated range given beforehand. It is, however, our best guess at the actual cost of the club fee (as club expenses depend on a multitude of factors: Number of members, equipment needed, competitions participated in, number of registered teams, etc.) and it is highly unlikely that it will exceed the range given, although not impossible.
