Cancellation of Programs/Sports

Specialized programs and sports require a minimum of 5 students in order to function as designed. If the minimum number of registrations for a specific program is not met, the said program may be canceled anytime the week before the camp is to start.

TAC Sports will provide as much notice as possible about the cancellation of the program, however, this may be on the Friday before the start of the program. If a program is canceled, the participants will be given the opportunity to choose an alternative program. A refund for any program with additional fees that have been canceled will be provided, however, if requested to cancel the full week of camp the camp cancellation fees will apply.

 

Bullying Policy

Bullying will not be tolerated at any TAC Sports program. In general, a “three strikes” policy is followed. After the first incident, a coach will address the situation with both the aggressor and victim. During a private meeting with the aggressor, the coach will explain the consequences of bullying. The parents of both parties will be notified. An incident report will be drafted and sent to head office. This procedure is followed should a second incident occur. In addition, the aggressor may be separated from the group or put into a different sport/activity (additional fees for specialized programs will apply). If a third incident should occur, the aggressor will be expelled from camp, not only for the duration of the program but from any other TAC Sports program in the future. Cases of extreme bullying are not subject to the three strike rule. If it is proven that there was intent to seriously harm another child through physical or verbal means the aggressor will face expulsion from camp. His or her parents will be called for immediate pickup (refund for remaining days ONLY will apply).

Parking

TAC Sports will not be held accountable for any tickets/parking tickets received.

TAC Sports will provide parking passes for the Glendon location. This parking pass will allow parents and guardians to park in the designated parking lot for 30 mins during pick up and drop off. Until parents receive this parking pass it is highly recommended to purchase a parking stub/feed the parking meter. Do not park in or near the handicap parking spots, unless with the appropriate handicap permit, a $400 parking ticket will be given. TAC sports will not be held accountable for any parking tickets.

 

Rainy Day Policy

Our coaches and coordinators are equipped with a rainy day schedule in the event of inclement weather. Students will remain in their sport-specific groups. Coaches will adapt their lesson plans for the indoor space. No refund, credit or make up days for rain days or inclement weather will apply.

 

Instructors

Every TAC Sports coach holds a current CPR and First Aid Training certification. All instructors are certified by NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program of Canada) and follow safe teaching methods with proper sequential instruction. Our 5 star development levels ensure that students are progressing at a pace that is appropriate for their current ability. All activities are supervised and our low instructor to student ratio ensures maximum attention.

 

Emergency List

We keep emergency contact information at every location, with records on medical history or allergies. We identify, treat, report, and record any occurrence of injury in a systematic way and keep up-to-date safety records of each camper.

 

Photo for students with allergies or medical concerns:

We require a photo of any child with a history of serious allergy or medical concerns. Please email info@tacsports.ca with a photo of your child. Please ensure the picture includes a clear view of your child’s face. If a child requires an Epi-Pen please ensure to provide the camp coordinator with the Epi-Pen, this will be returned at the end of each day or at the end of the week of camp.

 

Sign In/Out System

At TAC Sports, we have a proven and safe system in place for the sign-out of campers. No camper leaves the premises without a parent or guardian signing them out. Parents are required to show official identification every day upon pickup of their children and have to be on the list of authorized personnel.

TAC Sports is not liable for any children until they are signed in to our care by the parent or guardian or other authorized person listed on the authorization list.

 

Lost and Found Items

Each location has its own Lost and Found Bin. All items found by the coordinator and coaches will be placed in this bin. At the end of the camp items not claimed will be donated to a charitable organization. It is highly recommended that the child’s full name is placed on all personal items.

TAC Sports is not held accountable for any lost items, including but not limited to clothing articles, electronics, water bottles etc.

 

First Aid Materials

Fully Stocked First Aid Kits and ice packs are available at all times at all camp locations.
