UPDATE ON REFUNDS:
Dear CMFA Families, We are happy to announce we have an update from Esportsdesk! This week they sent CMFA a refund report that we needed to approve. CMFA has now approved it. Now that the report was approved Esportsdesk indicated they will begin processing the refund club fees. Then: - Esportsdesk is sending our approved report to BCCFA, BCPFA and Football Canada. - Once these all approve the report, Esportsdesk will begin the process of refunding the membership fees. Meaning you should see 2 separate refunds soon. 1 for club fees paid and 1 for membership fees. Please note: These refunds will also reflect a small transaction fee that esportsdesk is charging. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our registrar Jody at registration@coquitlamfootball.com Sincerely, CMFA Board

Spring Season Cancelled
With the continued escalation of the Covid-19 pandemic, the VMFL has decided the most prudent course of action is to cancel the 2020 Spring Flag season. This decision was not reached lightly, but the health and safety of our athletes and families must be the first priority. The CMFA Executive will destroy all deposit cheques (fundraising and volunteer). We are working with Esportsdesk to facilitate refund of the club fee portion of registration costs, and ask your patience while we sort this out. The League has asked the BCCFA, BCPFA and Football Canada about refunding the membership portion of registration fees. Please understand these are paid directly to the regulatory bodies, and not to CMFA. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you, Adam Smith President Coquitlam Minor Football Association President@CoquitlamFootball.com Respect All, Fear None!
