The parent/guardian of any child who does not wish their child to assume this position or play with children of a different age must make it known to TFA before payment is made to the Academy. In the absence of such notification, it shall be deemed that the parent/guardian has consented to their child assuming a goalkeeping position or to play with children of different age if requested to do so by a coach.
