How do we sign up and how much do I pay?

The programme has started already, is it OK to join?
No problem! If your child wishes to joins part way through a programme. email email@example.com to discuss sign up options.
If my child misses a class, can I get a refund or a credit?
Our rules about credits and refunds are very simple, and are stated clearly in our Terms and Conditions. Please take a minute to read them – they are not long, and clearly give our position on this.
Are your programes for boys and girls?
YES! Our programmes are for boys and girls!
What does my child need to bring?
Players should arrive in appropriate sportswear, correct footwear for the sport and venue, plenty of drinking water. For outdoor sessions you will need sun protection, warm clothes if it’s cold, spare clothes if its wet. Make sure they have medication with them if they need it.
Do parents /helpers participate in the classes?
My child is an advanced for their age. Can he/she move up to the next age group early?
We appreciate children all develop differently – there is actually no strict rule about when children should move up (or down) a level. We recommend that you should always start in the prescribed age group for your child. Speak to the coach about your child’s progress and they will always give you the best advice about which group to apply for in the next programme. Children are also able to swap classes mid-programme if the coach recommends it.
All of our youth coaching staff:
• Have passed the HK Police Sexual Conviction Check.
• Will have a current First Aid qualification.
• Will be trained to deliver appropriate, planned, professional sessions from our curriculum.
Curriculum and Long Terms Athletic Development Model
Our coaching curriculum contains hundreds of age appropriate games and activities, each one designed to get players practicing a certain skill or activity – but more importantly it will be fun!
We have developed a Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) Model Framework that we follow to ensure appropriate training and development methods are applied.
Stage 1: Active Start (0-6 years)
Stage 2: FUNdamentals (girls 6-8, boys 6-9 years)
Stage 3: Learn to Train (girls 8-11, boys 9-12 years)

Can I take photos / videos at classes and post on social media?
Our rules about photography, including videos, are very simple, and are stated clearly in our Terms and Conditions. Please take a minute to read them – they are not long, and clearly give our position on this.
We understand that parents want to take pictures and videos of their children playing. However please be sensitive to the feelings of other parents!
Please don’t take pictures/videos if:
We need to make sure everyone is comfortable, and that all players are protected from the misuse of opportunities to take or manipulate footage in a way that is harmful, or places them at risk of harm.
Hong Kong is subject to bad weather during the course of the year and the safety of our students is paramount. Our coaches (who are first aid trained) are aware of what to do in adverse weather conditions. In addition, our office monitors the weather forecast closely to try to ensure that students participate in a safe environment.
When a lesson is cancelled we will send an email and SMS to parents advising them. It is important to provide us with the correct information – especially if you are out of town but your child is attending. We do try and cancel an hour before lessons to leave enough time for alternative arrangements to be made for the children, but understand that weather can change quickly and this is not always possible.
Our full weather policy is stated in our Terms and Conditions.
Code of Conduct
Treat everyone equally regardless of gender, ability, ethnicity or religion.
