What is the class schedule, and how do I withdraw?
Our classes run September – August! (e.g., September 5th, 2023 – August 26th, 2024)
As stated in our policies (located in the Parent Portal), after your initial minimum 2 month commitment, we require 30 days written notice to withdraw from classes. This notice can be emailed to email@example.com.
How will you communicate information to me?
We use 2 forms of communication: phone calls and emails. Our emails will either come from our client database, Jackrabbit, or from our business email, firstname.lastname@example.org. If for some reason you are not receiving Jackrabbit emails, you may need to search your “Junk” or “Spam”, as they sometimes accidentally get flagged as such! The email address most commonly associated with our Jackrabbit emails is: email@example.com. Search this in your email, and make sure they’re not defaulting to spam!
What are all these fees?
– how many classes you have left (pro-rated if required)
– how many classes you’re taking (see next point for discounts)
You can see the monthly tuition of each class on our website next to each program, or on your Parent Portal
Do you provide discounts for siblings?
We offer 2 types of discounts:
– Sibling Discount – 20% off each least expensive class (if you have 3 children, the 2 least expensive classes will receive the discount)
– Multi Class Discount – 20% off each least expensive class (if one child takes 3 classes, the 2 least expensive classes will receive the discount)
Each class is only eligible for one (1) discount at a time. Competitive tuition is not eligible for discounts.
Does your Parent Portal accept Visa Debit?
No. You can, however, provide your banking details instead. If you would prefer to pay with your debit card (or cash) in person, we do require tuition to be paid 3 month instalments.
Can I get a statement for tax, or other purposes?
I just got an email saying my payment was declined, what happens now?
Our system has identified that your payment method has failed. If we do not receive payment in 48 hours, a $30 NSF fee will be applied to your account. Here are a few things you can do to avoid this fee:
– Log onto your Parent Portal, check your billing information (such as expiry date, account number etc), and then try processing the payment again.
– Make sure you’re not trying to process a debit card- remember, our system can’t process these! Update your information to a credit card or a bank account.
– If it’s still not working, send us an email or give us a call to let us know you’re looking into it, and we may be able to help!
I applied for funding, what now?
Once you’ve applied for funding, you can send us the confirmation of approval so we know to look out for a cheque from that organization. (Make sure they have our correct address!)
We still require upfront payments on the 1st of each month until your funding arrives. Once we receive the cheque, we will apply the amount received to your account. We will then call you to ask whether you would like:
a) to have the amount credited to your account for future use, or
b) to be refunded up to the amount of the cheque.
If you choose option a, we will use the credited amount for future tuition and charges until it’s depleted. If you choose option b, you will be refunded up to the amount of the cheque, and then we will continue taking payments for tuition and charges from your payment method on file.
If you have further questions, or receive funding from a school (e.g., Heritage Christian School/ Heritage Christian Online School), please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re going to miss a class, what happens then?
We offer makeup classes for all missed classes! These makeup classes are eligible for 6 weeks after the recorded absence, and can be booked through your Parent Portal. We allow booking of makeups up to 7 days in advance. You must be an active student to book a makeup class. Contact us if you’re having trouble booking a makeup class (email@example.com)!
Parkour Programs Related
What is parkour, and what’s the difference between parkour and ninja?
Parkour is defined as: “a training discipline where practitioners aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment, without assisting equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible.” (Wikipedia, August 2021).
Our Parkour programs are designed to introduce, build and nurture the foundational skills of parkour, as well as challenge them in a safe, and supervised setting.
Parkour and Ninja differ in their goals, and styles. While Parkour is more practical in its real life application, our Ninja Programs are more geared towards obstacle courses inspired by “American Ninja Warrior“.
If you’ve never done Parkour or Ninja before, we recommend starting in our Ninja Classes, or our Beginner Ninja Obstacle Training Classes (based on age). These classes provide an introduction to Ninja, and work on Ninja skills, as well as preparing participants for parkour if they so choose to follow that pathway.
When does skill collection happen in the Parkour and Ninja Programs?
While we aim to offer Skill Collection at least once a month, depending on the progression and skill level of each class, coaches may choose to delay skill collection to allow extra training time. Our goal is always to encourage success, and our coaches will will adapt lesson plans and timelines to achieve this.
