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.

A refund for any program with additional fees that have been cancelled will be provided but 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

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.

 

Instructors

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.

 

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 on our written injury sheet and keep up-to-date safety records of each camper.

Sign/Out System

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.”
