COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – The Cooperstown Dreams Park will offer refunds to teams who no longer want to participate in the summer tournament this year, as long as the request is submitted in writing by April 19.

The park has received several calls after its announcement last week requiring players 12 and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before coming to the park.

Without a vaccine currently approved for anyone younger than 16, many parents and teams were requesting refunds.

While the vaccination requirement is still in place, the park did post an update about refunds to its website Tuesday, stating:

"Our staff is currently communicating with Team Contacts. In an effort to effectively respond to all calls, we request that parents direct all phone calls, emails, and questions to their 'Team Contact.'

Refund Policy: Full refund for non-participating teams. All Refund Requests must be in writing from the Team Contact and be received by no later than April 19.

Non-participating teams current Grandfather Certificate and tournament date opening will be transferred to a new waiting list or registered team that will be assigned to the new tournament date opening. New team placements will receive an official tournament date placement confirmation letter in the mail.

Teams choosing to rollover to the 2022 season will receive a 2022 season tournament date confirmation letter and full credit for current deposits. Cooperstown Dreams Park staff will continue to communicate with Team Contacts to address all questions."

The park's opening plan published April 8 does say, in part, "Cooperstown Dreams Park is hopeful that the vaccines will be available a minimum of 21 days prior to any registration date. Cooperstown Dreams Park will, if necessary modify registration date by registration date until a vaccine is available for 12 year olds and older."
