2021 SPRING FORCE MAJEURE CANCELLATION POLICY

2021 SPRING FORCE MAJEURE CANCELLATION REFUND AND CREDIT POLICY (“FORCE MAJEURE CANCELLATION POLICY”)

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, as declared by the World Health Organization (“WHO”), and the continuing uncertainty related to governmental, health, and other restrictions and rules that may or may not be implemented by various governmental agencies in the future, First Down Football, LLC., D.B.A. First Down Flag Football (“First Down Flag”), and First Down Flag’s affiliates and subsidiaries, including without limitation Reigning Champs Leagues, LLC and Reigning Champs LLC (together with First Down Football, LLC., collectively, “First Down Flag”) is implementing a new Force Majeure Cancellation Policy.  All Participants must acknowledge and agree to this Force Majeure Cancellation Policy as an express condition precedent to their registration in First Down Flag’s 2021 Spring seasons. First Down Flag expends considerable resources, time and effort in preparing for each season and in order to be able to offer a 2021 Spring season, this Force Majeure Cancellation Policy is necessary to protect First Down Flag, as well as to fully inform all Participants of the uncertainty and risks involved in registering for the First Down Flag 2021 Spring seasons.

For purposes of the policies herein, a “season” of First Down Flag means and includes a seven game regular season plus one guaranteed playoff game.  During season preparation, First Down Flag will schedule a makeup game date at the end of the season.  First Down Flag may choose to modify a released season schedule to play a double header should its fields or availability to play become unavailable for any reason which is also in accordance with First Down Flag’s weather policy. A complete season will have been played so long as 4 games are played and a four-game season shall constitute full and complete performance by First Down Flag.

Excusable Delays and Force Majeure:

Any delay in the performance by First Down Flag of its obligations to Participant under any written agreement shall be excused when such delay in performance is due to any cause or event of any nature whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of First Down Flag, including without limitation, any act of God; any fire, flood or weather condition; any earthquake; any epidemic or WHO declared pandemic; any act of a public enemy, war, insurrection, riot, explosion, terrorist attack or strike; or any government demand, requirement or instruction (each, a “Force Majeure”).  A delay caused by Force Majeure shall not be deemed a cancellation of the season or termination of this Agreement unless First Down Flag, in its sole discretion, provides Participant written notice stating otherwise (the “Cancellation Notice”).  The time for performance of First Down Flag’s obligations may be amended for the period of delay or inability to perform due to such Force Majeure, as determined in the sole and absolute discretion of First Down Flag.  If First Down Flag provides Participant a Cancellation Notice, the 2021 Spring season will be cancelled and subject to the terms below.
