Soccer Class Policies

snow day cancellation

Classes are cancelled on days when the HWDSB closes all schools due to bad weather. Classes may be made up following the "make-up classes" policy listed below.

Classes

Classes are 50 minutes long with a water break about half-way through. Class sizes range depending on the number of coaches and ages of the children. All classes are coed, so the mix of boys and girls is based on who registers. Parents/guardians are required to remain on-site fore all classes and actively participate in Bunnies, Thumpers & Cottontails. Classes are weekly with sessions following the school calendar; Fall (Labour Day - Christmas), Winter (New Year's - March Break), Spring (March Break - Victoria Day) & Summer (June-August).

DRESS CODE

Children should wear comfortable clothes and running shoes or soccer cleats. Shin guards are recommended for children in Micro Classes. Lil' Striker uniforms (jersey and shorts) are provided free of charge upon payment of annual membership. In the colder weather, extra layers are sometimes a good idea.

registrations

Registration fees and annual membership are due at the time of registration and are non-refundable. Fees are pro-rated for children joining an existing session.

Make-up Classes

Missed classes may be made-up within the session. Make-up classes must be pre-arranged with the office so the coach is prepared and to ensure the class has space. 

refunds

Many children require a few weeks to become comfortable and freely participate in our structured classes. If, after attending three (3) consecutive classes, you wish to withdraw we will happily refund your class fees. Memberships are non-refundable. 

Age requirements

Children must meet the minimum age requirement before the first day of class.

Coach requests

All Lil' Strikers instructors are carefully screened to ensure we provide quality, child-centred and high energy instruction. Instructors go through a rigorous training process which includes, among other things, child development theory. We assign coaches to our classes just before each new session begins. You may request a specific coach but it can never be guaranteed.
