What happens if it rains?

If camp is canceled due to weather, parents will be notified as early as possible, and camp will extend to Friday as a make-up date. If additional days are canceled due to weather, then compensation will be given for the missed time. 

What happens if it's extremely hot outside?

We take all precautions to protect athletes from the sun. Children are advised to wear hats and bring sunscreen - which coaches will remind participants to apply frequently throughout the day. Water breaks are essential and will occur throughout the day frequently to avoid dehydration and heat stroke.

Coaches are not permitted to apply sunscreen onto the athletes. However, they will constantly remind players to reapply sunscreen. Please ensure your child is supplied with an adequate amount of sun protection. Spray cans are advised.

Can I request for my child to be in the same group as a friend?

Yes. Friend requests can be submitted and accommodated where possible. However, the coach will have the final say. Coaches will have to look after the rest of the group and ensure that all kids are learning in the most appropriate setting.

How are players grouped?

Players are grouped by ability level/experience, age and where necessary gender.

Ratios differ across each sport and are dependent on the age group, but typically 1:12.
