Virtual Softball Academy Coaching Service
The Virtual Softball Academy coaching service is intended solely as a general athletic informational means by which Members can communicate with Virtual Softball Academy coaches. In selecting our trainer coaches, we endeavor to source only those coaches who can demonstrate a minimum of two (2) years’ experience in a softball specific field, with valid professional experience at a reputable training institution or gym. In the course of providing coaching advice, our coaches may occasionally answer incidental nutritional questions based on their own personal experience. VIRTUAL SOFTBALL ACADEMY DOES NOT REPRESENT IN ANY WAY THAT ANY NUTRITIONAL OR PHYSICAL FITNESS ADVICE PROVIDED BY A TRAINER COACH CONSTITUTES QUALIFIED EXPERT ADVICE.
Virtual Softball Academy takes care to instruct its coaches never, under any circumstance, to provide advice that could be construed as expert advice outside of their field of expertise, and we in no way encourage or endorse such behavior from our coaches.
If you encounter a Virtual Softball Academy coach who is providing expert advice in violation of these principles, please contact us immediately at support@virtualsoftballacademy. You should always seek expert professional advice in nutritional and health matters, and should not rely on any opinions expressed through the Virtual Softball Academy Service as expert opinions or advice.
- What information we may collect about you;
- What we use that information for; and
- When and with whom we share that information.
CONSENT TO EMAIL: When you become a Member, you agree and consent to receive email messages from us. These emails may be transactional or relationship communications relating to the Service, such as administrative notices and service announcements or changes, or emails containing commercial offers, promotions or special offers from us or third party partners.
Auto-renewal and billing; Subscription Fees; Free Trial Terms.
- Subscription.Unless you have selected a free version of the Virtual Softball Academy Membership, the Virtual Softball Academy Service is a paid, auto-renewing subscription service. You will be charged the stated subscription amount for the subscription period upon completion of your registration and submission of your payment information unless your membership includes a free trial period.
- Auto-Renewal.You are agreeing that upon expiration of the initial subscription period, your subscription will automatically renew for successive periods. You agree to automatic (recurring) billing, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith. You will be billed at the then-current applicable subscription price plus any applicable taxes. We will process payment for any renewal subscriptions using the same billing cycle as your current subscription. Subscription fees may change at any time, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. Your Subscription, and monthly billing of your account, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you.
- Free Trials.If you accepted an offer with a Free Trial, your Virtual Softball Academy membership begins when you have completed the Free Trial sign-up process (i.e., when we collect your personal and payment information). At the end of your 30-day Free Trial, you will begin to be billed automatically each month (about every 30 days) until you cancel. Once we begin to bill you, cancellations take effect starting at the end of your current billing period, meaning there are no partial month refunds or credits. If you cancel your Free Trial membership at anytime in the first thirty days (i.e., during the Free Trial period), you will not be charged.
- Pricing and Special Offers.The pricing of our Services may vary periodically. We cannot guarantee that the price of your Subscription is the lowest available, or historically lowest or best, price. You will be charged in accordance with the billing terms you agreed to at the time you signed up. At certain times, we may offer special promotional offers (“Special Offers”) that are billed at a discounted rate. These offers may have a different Free Trial period length, or no Free Trial period. In these cases, you will begin to be billed at the time payment information is collected, or, if a Free Trial is being offered, at the end of the special Free Trial period. Note: in these cases, our typical 30-day Free Trial will not apply. These terms will always be disclosed on the payment screen at the time of sign up, prior to our acceptance of payment. In all instances, you will continue to be automatically billed monthly after your Free Trial ends (or immediately if there is no Free Trial).
- Add-On Services.We refer to any additional, paid subscription Service we offer beyond a standard Membership as an “Add-On Service.” For example, our personalized Coaching service, or any other Service we may offer to you which provides access to special or additional Content beyond your standard Membership, is an Add-On Service. Each Add-On Service is a separate subscription service and is subject to an additional monthly fee that automatically renews just like your regular Membership. Before agreeing to an Add-On Service, you will be prompted with i) the type of Service being offered (e.g. Coaching); and ii) the monthly, recurring cost for such Add-On Service. Note: if You purchase an Add-On Service, You are agreeing to an additional monthly automatic (recurring) billing subscription, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith, as disclosed at the time You accept the Add-On Service. Your Add-On Service subscription, just like Your standard Membership subscription, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by You. Add-On Services are billed on the same day as Your regular Membership, in one combined payment. You can cancel at any time by following the instructions below (“How to Cancel”). Note that Your Add-On Service subscription is separate from your regular Membership, although we will combine the charges each month when we bill You. You can cancel one or both at any time, but canceling your regular Membership will automatically cancel your Add-On Service. Your Add-On Service Free Trial period lasts only as long as your original (initial) Free Trial offer is in effect, which means that if you do not sign up for the Add-On Service on the same day you initially signed up for your 30-day Free Trial membership, your Add-On free trial will only remain in effect for the remainder of your initial Free Trial period. So, for example, if you signed up for your Free Trial membership on the 1st of the month, and signed up for your Add-On Service on the 16th, your free Add-On trial period would only last for approximately two weeks through the 30th of that same month (the same duration as your initial Free Trial membership). Sorry, once your 30-day Free Trial membership has expired, you can no longer sign up for a free Add-On Service trial. In other words, any new Add-On Service added after the expiration of your original Free Trial membership will begin to be billed immediately, pro rated for the number of days in the month remaining, and will not be eligible for a Free Trial.
- Quarterly and Annual Subscriptions.In certain circumstances, we will offer Subscriptions for a longer term (for example, 3 months, 6 months or even a year). These longer-term Subscriptions are charged in full upon purchase, and automatically renew for the same duration as the initial Subscription term you selected (for example, if you initially purchased a 3 month Subscription, your Subscription will automatically renew for three months; 6 month subscriptions will automatically renew for six months, and so on). The amount due for the next renewal term will be due and immediately payable in full and charged as of the first day of such renewal term. You can always cancel before your next renewal term by logging into your account, and following the cancellation instructions below (“How to Cancel”).
- Paused Subscriptions.In circumstances of documented injury, in which you may pause your subscription, your account will automatically reactivate following the time period that you specified at the time of pausing, and we will then automatically start to bill you again. You will be responsible for payment upon reactivation regardless of whether or not you receive a reminder notice regarding the expiration of your paused status. By electing to pause your subscription, you agree and authorize Virtual Softball Academy to bill your account starting at the expiration of your paused account status period. To request a pause email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Authorization for Automatic Recurring Charges.When you sign up for our Service and provide a payment method to Virtual Softball Academy or a third party Application, you are granting your express consent and are expressly authorizing us (and our designated payment processor) to automatically charge you each month for the Service. If you provide a payment method and our charge results in an overdraft, chargeback or other fee from your bank, you alone are responsible for that fee. EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SUBSCRIPTION OR ACCESS THE VSA APPLICATION, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 9 BELOW OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED.
Service Add-Ons– Auto Billing; Coaching; Subscription Fees; Free Trial; and Cancellation Changes. Virtual Softball Academy may increase its fees for any subscription effective the first day of a billing renewal by giving you notice of the new fees at least thirty (30) days before you are billed. If you have and do not cancel your subscription, you will be deemed to have accepted the new fees.
- Cancellation; Term and Termination; Account Deletion
HOW TO CANCEL You are using the Virtual Softball Academy Service through the Virtual Softball Academy Site, virtualsoftballacademy.com and you do not wish for your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, first log into your account, and click manage my account.
You can also cancel under “Account Settings” which appears on the lower left hand side of the page whenever you are logged in. Your cancellation will take effect starting at the end of your current billing period.
From the Account Settings page, simply follow these few steps: * Click on the “Manage Subscription” button * Scroll down to the “View your options” button in the lower left section of the page * Enter your reason for cancelling and hit “Continue” on the next two screens * Confirm your cancellation by selecting the “Confirm cancellation” option. * A “Cancel my subscription” button will then appear. Select it. * Click “Yes” on the final confirmation pop-up.
Note that a blue notification bar will appear in your Account Settings confirming cancellation. Your Subscription status will state that your account is “Pending Cancellation.” This is because your cancellation takes effect at the start of the next billing cycle (Don’t worry – your cancellation effective date will be listed and you will continue to have access to your account through the account expiration date). So, for example, if you have a monthly subscription that began on the first of the month but cancel mid-month, your cancellation will take effect as of the beginning of the following month. Sorry– there are no refunds on Virtual Softball Academy subscriptions for billing periods that have already lapsed.

- General Provisions
ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW: The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, or the Site shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against Virtual Softball Academy in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against Virtual Softball Academy or its affiliates any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding. By using the Site or the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Virtual Softball Academy or its affiliates (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against Virtual Softball Academy (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Broward County, Florida. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes and you irrevocably waive any right to a trial by jury.
This Agreement, and any dispute between you and Virtual Softball Academy, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Florida without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
INTERPRETATION; SEVERABILITY; WAIVER; REMEDIES: Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to construe the terms of this Agreement. If any term of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be severed from this Agreement. No failure or delay by Virtual Softball Academy in exercising any right hereunder will waive any further exercise of that right. Virtual Softball Academy’s rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive.
SUCCESSORS; ASSIGNMENT; NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES: This Agreement is binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of both parties and their respective successors, heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and permitted assigns. You may not assign this Agreement without Virtual Softball Academy prior written consent. No third party shall have any rights hereunder.
