Terms and Conditions
Development Programs (Lessons, Leagues, Training, Camps and Clinics)
Pakmen is a not-for-profit organization. Unlike a government organization e.g., Parks and Recreation, we have to cover all our expenses and cannot operate at a loss.
We are happy to provide high quality volleyball programs to youth at an affordable price but in order to do so, when parents register for a program, they must share the liability with the club and agree to the 4 terms of our refund policy and our weather policy.
In the event that a participant is unable to attend a class(es), refunds, credits or makeup class(es) will not be offered.
Withdrawals with a full refund up to one week before the start of the program or event will be charged a $25 administration fee. Withdrawals after this date, but before the start of the program or event will be charged a $50 administration fee.
No refunds or credits will be issued after the start of the program. No exceptions, medical or otherwise.
If a school board cancels a permit due to weather (or any reason beyond our control) the club will issue a credit for future use in any Pakmen program.
All programs will run during the winter regardless of weather with the exception of a school board cancelling a permit.
Pakmen Courts will remain open even when it snows and we cannot offer refunds or credits during these days.
The Pakmen Volleyball Club may take photographs of your child for usage in Pakmen publications, the club website, and social media for promotional purposes. I am also aware that I may withdraw consent for taking photographs of my child at any time by contacting us.
In the event that a player is offered a spot on a Pakmen team and the player accepts the spot (by signing and completing the Ontario Volleyball Association Player registration form), the player is fully responsible for all player fees. No refunds will be issued and the player is responsible for any fees outstanding.
