Top Out Climbing Club Absenteeism Policy

 

Please take note of the following absenteeism policy for Top Out Climbing Club:

 

1.      Parents and guardians are to notify their child’s specific coach on whether their child will not make a particular class at least 24 hours prior to the class.

2.      If it is an emergency and something literally came up to prevent the child coming to class, the parent or guardian is to contact their child’s specific coach immediately.

3.      If a child is running late for class, the parent or guardian must notify their child’s specific coach immediately.

4.      It is preferable to send an sms or whatsapp message when notifying coaches of any of the above.  For notifications early enough in advance, an email will suffice.

5.      Unless Delaney Carpenter has been informed up front at the start of the term of any days that the parent or guardian knows definitively that their child will not be attending a specific class, any missed classes will still need to be paid for: the coach will still show up for a class even if your child doesn’t.

6.      Special concessions will be given for reasons for absenteeism out of the ordinary, i.e. deaths in the family, acts of God, emergency situations, long-term injuries or illnesses, etc.  These must be communicated to Delaney Carpenter and only Delaney Carpenter can make the call to credit these missed sessions.

Kindly note the following:

·        Coaching does not include the venue membership fees.  Anyone receiving coaching from Top Out at any of the venues above would need to contact the  facilities directly for payment for use of the facility itself.  Think of it as paying your Virgin Active Gym membership and hiring a personal trainer over and above  that.  To climb at CityROCK or Bloc 11 Gyms, you would need to become a member of either gym and pay the gym directly for use of their facilities.  To  receive coaching from Top Out, you would need to be a member of Top Out Climbing Club and pay Top Out for the above coaching sessions. 

·        The Coaching Schedule may change from time-to-time depending on venue, coach or climber availability.  Updates will be published to the website and emailed  to all members.

·        CityROCK Indoor Climbing Gym limits us to only 4 child climbers per coach for Top Roper through Intermediate Level and 8 child climbers per coach for Advanced Level.

·        Adult Climbers wishing to be coached are to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. directly.
