Q. Are you available outside the posted schedule?
A. Sometimes, case by case because an exception can be made to accommodate a last minute request.
Q. How long in advance can I secure your services/commitment to coaching?
A. We know life gets in the way, but please give us at least one hour notice. However, all requests made between 4-14 days will be accommodated as long as there are no emergencies.
Q. Is there a waiver for injuries?
A. Yes, these must be signed for player by parent and/or player (must be 18 years or older). Waivers are updated annually. This starts from July 15th, 2019.
Q. What happens when the training gets interrupted by weather or unforeseen circumstances?
A. The training session will then be charged by the minute. Minute trained divided by 60 x hourly rate. For example: Rate of $50, played for 25 minutes = 25/60 x $50 = $20.83
