We will inform you in advance of the start of any session if we are forced to cancel that session. If you do not hear from us, you must always assume the session is going ahead.
Any courses/camps/activities that have insufficient numbers of participants may be cancelled at our discretion. In this event we will offer a full refund for the cancelled course/camp/activity that has been cancelled.
If a coaching course session is cancelled by us due to inclement weather we will make up that session at another time that is available in the schedule. If you cannot attend the make up session, you may request to join another class that term, provided there is one available of suitable level and with space.
Once a session has started it is deemed to have taken place and will not be made up if the weather turns bad during the session.
For coaching course sessions, the coach may leave the site after 15 minutes passed the start time if nobody shows and has not been warned of your late arrival. This will not constitute a cancelled session by us.
If a coaching course session is cancelled by us due to coach unavailability or factors that are out of our control, we will make up that session another time that is available in the schedule. If you cannot attend the make up session, you may request to join another class that term, provided there is one available of suitable level and with space. If none of these options can be utilised we will then offer you a credit for the missed session.
