Scrimmage Class Cancellations & Policy
We understand that people need to cancel. No worries, just let us know. If you are unable to make your Scrimmage sessions, please let us know by filling out the form through the link below.
If you are unable to make sessions that are more than two days away, please fill out the Future Cancellation form. Otherwise, use the Same/Next Day Cancellation form. Scrimmages and Private Lessons have a "use it or lose it policy."
$25 fine for not informing Avila staff of absences
Please note using the links below is the only valid method of canceling your classes. Texts and phone calls are not helpful. Same day notifications will be accepted.
If Scrimmages and Private Lessons are missed, it is possible to ask for a make-up IF 1) player filled out the appropriate cancellation form and 2) there are available scrimmaging spots. Make-ups will not be guaranteed.
As noted above with our "use it or lose it policy," we do not guarantee make-ups. That said, we will try to accommodate you if we become aware of suitable availability and only within a 10-day period of the missed class. However, Private Lesson make-ups will be in the form of scrimmaging only, if available.
There is only one valid way to request the possibility of a make-up which is to fill out the following Make-up form below.

- Shin guards are required during scrimmages/Golden Ticket Classes. For player’s safety, trainers may exclude players from scrimmages if they are not wearing any shin guards.
Note about the Red Avila Armband (Neutral)
The red arm band is a conditional level or Neutral and can be used in the following situations:
- Players who have been one color armband that belong in a higher group, but have not tested out
- Players who don't want to share their arm band color publicly
- Players who are there as a trial
- Players who paid and started lessons in an advanced group without ever being assessed but based on what we estimated or the parent estimated. They can be in the group but doesn't excuse them from testing out.
We will grandfather into the right color those players who have been with us already but all new players must test out within 6 weeks of their start date.
Coming for a free trial?
- Players who are coming for a free trial must wear a white shirt (however, white pinnie vests are also available)
- Players are required to wear a Red Avila armband on your sleeve which can be borrowed from Avila.
