Registration Policies & Guidelines Uh-oh, we had to cancel: Regrettably, if a minimum number of registrants is not met, we may have to cancel or combine classes due to insufficient registration. These decisions are made prior to the course start date. Please register early to avoid disappointment. A 100% refund is granted when we cancel a program. When a class has been cancelled due to instructor illness or weather conditions, a class will be added on at the end of the session. If this is not possible, a credit will be placed on your account in the amount of the class missed. Sorry, the course is full: If a program is full, please ask staff to put your name on our waitlist. Staff reviews these lists continually and we will do our best to accommodate those waitlisted. Customer Satisfaction: We care about your experience in our programs. Please contact one of our Programmers directly to discuss any questions, comments, or concerns that you have with our recreation programs. Extended Illness / Injury: In cases of extended illness or injury, a prorated refund or credit may be granted upon provision of a medical note. Missed Classes: Classes missed due to sickness, vacation, or other reasons will not be refunded or credited. Oops, changed your plans?: A credit or refund will be issued if we receive applicable withdrawal notification. Programs and lessons require five (5) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. Camps and certification courses require seven (7) or more days’ notice prior to course start date. If appropriate notice is not given, no refund or credit will be issued. There may be other exceptions to these guidelines. In some cases, these exceptions will be noted in the individual course description. To request a refund, please contact the facility that is offering your program. Refund Fee: All program refunds are subject to a $5 refund processing fee, unless left as a credit on your account for future use. Non-Sufficient Funds: An administration fee of $5 will be charged on all N.S.F. payments. All program and admission fees include all applicable taxes.

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is the key to being

ACTIVE FOR LIFE What is Physical Literacy?

Physical Literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life. (The International Physical Literacy Association, May 2014) Physical activity is a lot more fun when we’re physically literate. If we want children to be active for life, they need to develop physical literacy at a young age. Physicalliteracy.ca offers coaches, recreation professionals and health practitioners access to a wide range of resources that can help people become physically literate.

What are Fundamental Movement Skills?

Fundamental movement skills are the foundation for an active life. This list contains 25 fundamental movement skills which children can learn: 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99

This eightweek course provides education in Triple P basics, and helps parents deal with almost any parenting situation, in ways that are best suited to their own families.
