Class enrollment is set to a minimum of 5 children and maximum of 25 children to operate. Classes can be altered, canceled, added or changed by location for various reasons but you would of course be informed of any changes as soon as physically possible.
2 CLASSES PER WEEK:
If your child/children register for 2 classes per week, we will discount the 2nd class 50%.
Our child/coach ratiol (regular and vets classes) is 6/1 or less in a full class. (example: 10 children, 2 coaches ). If the class is not full then the ratio is even better.
Registration & classes are filled on a first received basis. Your child will be considered registered only when a registration form & payment has been received by mail, in hand or on line though our website.
It has now become necessary for us to collect ALL payments at the time of enrollment.
JOINING LATE IN THE SESSION
All classes are filled on a first come first served basis. Once registration starts it carries on until the class is filled. You can register at any time during a session for a class that is indicated as 'open' on the schedules page. Any classes missed due to late enrollment, sick, or vacation can be made up at any of our classes *All Make ups must be done within the current session. - As of Spring 2017, no refunds will be given for missed classes.
If you miss class, you can make it up by attending another class at any time except for classes designated as full. MAX 2 PER SESSION PLEASE . You can do 2 one session, 2 the next session etc etc if you have more than two though.
Make-ups have no expiry date and you do not need to let us know or ask permission, just look at the schedule online, pick a class and show up. Please inform the coach when you arrive though that it's a make-up you are doing.
We realize with many of our classes now being full it may be a problem attending not full classes. If the only classes you can attend are full them please e-mail to see which classes are more suitable to attend. If you know ahead of time you are going to miss a class and it is more convenient to make-up a class BEFORE you actually 'miss it' then that's fine also. We DO NOT offer prorated fees or credit on future sessions because of personally missed classes or if your child has chosen not to participate in the classes. No exceptions.
Please note that this make-up policy is unbelievably good and unrivaled by any other child's activity in the entire universe. You can check and please do, so please don't quibble with it!
If notification of cancellation is received 24HRS BEFORE THE SECOND class meeting, in writing by (e-mail) you will be entitled to a refund of your registration fee minus a $19.00 administration fee. Please note that if you do not attend the first class or choose to bring your child to the second class and he/she does not participate then that is your choice and is still subject to our refund/cancellation policies. 'Participation' in either class is irrelevant. It's the space in the class that he/she occupied that is the key.
Refunds will NOT be given for cancellation beyond 24 hrs before the 2nd week of class.
RAIN-OUTS/EXTREME HEAT/NATURAL DISASTERS ETC.
In case of any of the above conditions please call 858-344-7678 around 45 minutes before the start time of the first class in your morning or afternoon session. e.g. Please don't just presume it's canceled if it's raining at your house. It may not be at the field. If class is canceled, there will be a cancellation message, otherwise class is as usual. FYI--Unless it's actually raining hard at the time, we will most likely be doing class. For classes that are canceled by us due to weather etc: We will make up classes at the end of the session during the break in between sessions. Or, you may choose to make up the class on another day. If there are more than one per session or we don't have the break after the session, you may choose to make up the class on another day or receive credit towards a future session.
WHAT TO WEAR/BRING
T-Ball class do not need any special equipment or clothing as long as they're wearing closed toed shoes. If your child has cleats and they want to wear them then that's fine, it's just not a requirement.
Parents, bring something for your child to drink and something for yourself to sit on.
CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
Children with special needs are very welcome in our classes. Our child coach ratio is super low and we are very visual with our instruction. Please indicate on your registration form any special needs your child has and also feel free to speak to your child's coach personally before the start of your first class also if you would like to. This way we can obviously help your child in the correct way for his or her needs during the class.
Veterans classes are for children who are ready for little competition. Please don't feel you need to move your child into these classes based on the length of time they have been in a regular class. The majority of children will not be ready for these classes, for a long time. (If ever). It's not only a question of age, but also having reached a physical/emotional/social stage of development. This is the best way to master any skill. Also, as parents you may get bored, but the kids don't--we promise! It's comforting to know 'the drill' and that's how they learn. We do not wish to discourage anyone from wanting to enroll their child in these classes if they are ready for them, however, if you are in doubt please talk to your child's coach. Please do not be offended if we say they're not ready!
These classes are for children who are ready for a competitive class. (Abate a lighthearted and still super fun one). This class is ideal for children who do seasonal rec T-Ball but are still wanting to play T-Ball at other times of the year, or children who have grown too old/big or skilled for the regular or veterans classes but have no desire to join a team and would prefer a weekly fun class instead.
Little Rookies classes are not 'drop off'. Although the majority of parents/carers enjoy a little quiet time on the side of the field watching their child participate in the class independently. They must be over 18 and be present at all times as they are ultimately responsible for their child even during the class.
