Notice of Refund Policy Change
Due to the increasing volume of refunds and the time/costs incurred to process the refunds, the Professional Skaters Association has made a change to the refund policy. As of September 1, 2016, any refund requested on membership purchases due to non-system related issues (i.e. duplicate purchase, incorrect membership selected, etc.) will no longer be issued a refund check. The refund will be granted, however the amount refunded will be in the form of a credit to the user account where it will be available for future purchases of membership, items from the PSA store, or PSA educational events.
