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, said the program may be cancelled 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.

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).

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

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. Each sport will have a designated time slot in the gym which will rotate through each sport, when not in the gym, coaches will have an in-class lesson plan prepared. No refund or credit for rainy days will apply.
Every TAC Sports coach holds a current CPR and First Aid Training certification. All instructors are certified by NCCP (National 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.
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 on our written injury sheet 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
TAC Sports is not liable for any children until they are signed into our care by the parent or guardian or other authorized person listed on the authorization list.

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 and 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.

Adventure Camp – Multi Sports
TAC Adventure Camp is a FULL DAY program (with a HALF DAY option) for ages 4-5.
Every week offers a different theme (i.e. Safari, Atlantis, Superheros and Villains, etc.), where exciting activities are planned in correspondence to that theme. The weekly activities include activities such as arts and crafts, story time, camp songs, low organizational games (where campers learn fundamental movement skills), and scavenger hunts that are stimulating for young minds, fostering creativity and imagination, and more importantly develops both literacy and physical literacy.
Furthermore, each day features a specific sport that is modified to be developmentally appropriate for this age group, allowing campers to explore soccer, tennis, basketball & dance and decide for themselves what sports they are most passionate about. For more detailed information about this program, please refer to our weekly curriculum plan in the itinerary. All children registered in Adventure Camp must be potty trained.
“Physical literacy is just as important as the ability to read and write. The most important step toward developing physical literacy is mastering fundamental movement skills.”
Our TAC Soccer program is designed for all skill levels; ranging from the fundamentals to the refinement of the most advanced techniques. Programming focuses on individual skills and on increasing children’s self-confidence. Programming consists of fun skill games, soccer matches, and thorough practices.
Students start with basic techniques such as dribbling, passing and shooting, and move towards advanced techniques such as strategy, 1v1 dribbling, and positioning. Further skills are also developed such as (ball control, ball possession, tackling, positional sense, guarding the ball, and support play. Specialized training for goalkeepers is provided at more advanced levels.
We apply the 5-Star TAC Soccer Development System to all of our soccer programs. This system gives students 5 measurable levels to achieve with specific criteria outlined. It is specifically designed to increase motivation, knowledge retention, goal-setting skills, and development. This system is unique and distinguishes TAC Sports from other camps.
Students that progress to an advanced level may be invited to tryout for our competitive soccer teams.
Mega Star Learning®
Mega Star Learning® is implemented in all of our sports camps. Lesson plans are structured to provide one drill followed by a short segment of gameplay with an emphasis on the skill learned in the drill. This sequence is repeated continuously throughout the day. Mega Star Learning is a perfect mix between skill building and having fun! This strategy maximizes concentration, willingness to learn new skills and retention of the learned material.
LSA Lego ArchiTECH
The Lifetime Skills Academy (LSA) Lego ArchiTECH Camp program is our intro robotics program. Students work with the We-Do Lego kits and learn how to:
- Gain intuition on how to build basic simple structures
- Learn the basics behind programming motors
- Learn to principles behind ultrasonic sensors
- Building and understanding robot design with advanced mechanics
- Develop advanced skills with WeDo programming
Students learn different projects like building cars, helicopters and more, and early programming skills. Students program using easy to use tablets on the Lego We-Do software. It’s a perfect start to the more complex programming in Lego Robotics.
Each day students will be taking part in different themed challenges, from building the most creative robot to robot war competitions to obstacle course challenges.
LSA Lego Robotics
TAC Lego Robotics program allows students to engage in various technological activities that are growing popular in today’s youth. The students enjoy building their robots, as well as programming them. By learning the basics, and building their way up, individuals can achieve mastery and demonstrate competence.
Students start with the basic skills, such as building a simple robot, programming different motions, and using the various sensors to make a robot move. Once learned, students can go above and beyond, making robots that can pick up items, sense when people are near, and even solve Rubik’s Cubes.
