Summer Camp Policies 2018/2019

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.

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.

Changing Sport Policy

Athletes can choose to switch their chosen sport on the second day of camp (subject to availability and capacity). However, campers must remain in their selection for the remainder of the week and are unable to make a change in sport beyond the second day of camp. If a camper is unsure of what sport to choose, they have the opportunity to join the multi-sport program (offered at select locations).

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.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellations that are received 30 days prior to the beginning of the program will be provided a complete refund less a 10% administrative fee.

Cancellations that are received with less than 30 days of notice prior to the beginning of the program will be provided with a refund less a 50% administrative fee.

Cancellations that are received with less than 3 days of notice prior to the beginning of the program will not be eligible for a refund.

Individual camp days missed for any reason cannot be refunded or credited. In the case of exceptional illness, that results in three consecutive missed days or more, a 50% refund or 100% credit will be provided. A signed doctor’s note must be provided in these circumstances.

Lunch Program

All full day, full week registrants will be included in the lunch program. This provides the camper with a morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack. To be eligible for lunch, a full-day camper must be registered for 4 days or more. Registrations of three days or less per week will not be provided with lunch. Registrants of this nature will still receive snack.

Half day registrants will receive one snack.

Instructors

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.

Prorated Fees

Drop-in registrants, who are going to attend less than 5 days per week, are eligible for pro-rated pricing on premium programs (biking and robotics) and before/after care. If required, please call the office at 416-627-1092.

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.

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.

Sign Out System

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

First Aid Materials

Fully Stocked First Aid Kits and ice packs are always on site.

Specialized Program Attendance

Specialized programming requires a minimum of 5 students in order to function as designed.
