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).

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.”

MARTIAL ARTS

Our Martial Arts camp program allows our students to explore the fundamentals of Martial Arts and self-defense, combining Shotokan Karate, Muay Thai, and Jiu-Jitsu. The combination of these three styles of Martial Arts makes for a complete introduction to self-defence. The principle goal of the program is to foster confidence in the students physical and verbal ability to stand up for themselves, all the while demonstrating unwavering respect towards others. We also strive to create a passion for Martial Arts and a firm understanding of the fundamental techniques.The supplementary benefits include developing a healthy, strong and resilient body through developing cardiovascular endurance and muscle strength.

The program also focuses on equipping students with a well-rounded education in the safety of their own person and the safety of those around them. To ensure the safety and well-being of all children, occasional discussions will be had on the topic of bullying, its implications, modes of prevention, and Street Smart rules.

Physical Benefits: Children benefit by developing a strong and flexible body. They also develop better motor skills (coordination and balance) as well as improved mental and muscle memory.

Emotional Benefits: Children develop positive self-esteem, confidence, self-respect, and respect for others.

Spiritual Benefits: Children benefit with improved focus, discipline and the ability to dissolve the ego in order to think clearly in a confrontation.

Practical Benefits: Children develop a better understanding of body mechanics, Street Smart rules, and basic First Aid techniques. Through the teaching of the Martial Arts, they develop the ability to defend themselves on their feet and on the ground should a dangerous situation arise.
