We do require payment in full to secure your child/rens place at our club.
Once you have completed the registration form you will receive an invoice containing the payment details to secure the booking.
Please be aware that your child's place is not secured until full payment is received.
Payments are to be made via bank transfer only and no later than 7 days prior to your child's booked date/s.
We do not accept cash payments.
We operate as a (adult-led) Sports & Performing Arts coaching club for children aged 5 - 11 years old (primary school age). We are excempt from Ofsted registration therefore we can not accept tax-free credits or vouchers.
We understand that unfortunate circumstances may occur or last minute plans may arise which may result in your child unable to attend their place.
Due to the nature of the club (limited numbers, materials pre-purchased) and additional costs such as room & pitch hire we can not offer refunds on cancellations. Please keep this in mind when booking your child's place on any club dates.
We will rollover any missed dates to our next club date but do not offer cash refunds for cancellations.
It is fundamental to our club that all members are happy, comfortable and enjoying their experience at all times.
If at anytime we feel your child is unhappy at the club we will make contact with you to express any concerns and discuss the appropriate course of action to take.
Our club is based on the ethos that children attend because they want to; not because they have to!
We do not want your children to view the club as a source of childcare for your purpose, it is so important that children are attending to develop new or hidden skills, socialise & create new friendships and have the opportunity to new or unique educational experiences.
Our club is a happy place where all should feel equal, comfortable, included and most importantly ... a part of the club!
