It is critically important to the experiential learning process, group dynamics and each child's program experience that girls participate in all sessions. Participants are not allowed to attend only one session per week. Kids who miss more than four (4) practices may lose their spot on the team.
Respectful Behavior Policy:
Every participant is expected to behave in a respectful manner towards their coaches and teammates. Ongoing negativity, disruption, threatening behavior and bullying will not be tolerated. Girls on the Run reserves the right to remove from participation any child who exhibits this type of behavior. Parents/guardians and coaches agree to act in accordance with this policy as well.
Withdrawal and Refund Policy:
Girls on the Run of SCWI will issue a refund for withdrawal from the program up to the start of the first session. Processing fees will be retained. No refunds will be issued after the program starts. No refunds will be issued for girls who have been asked to leave due to a violation of a policy. If a team is canceled due to insufficient registration, inadequate coach support, or other extenuating circumstances, the registration fee will be refunded, excluding the processing fee.
Late Guardian Policy:
Participants are expected to be picked up on time. Ongoing tardiness will not be tolerated. On the first occurrence parent/guardian will be verbally reminded of the tardiness policy. The second time, a verbal reminder and written email acknowledgement of the policy will be issued. Upon the third instance, the child may no longer be able to participate in programming.
Pick-Up and Release Policy:
Guardians are responsible for arranging/providing transportation for their child(ren) to and from practice. Program participants will be released only to those people listed as Parent/Guardians, Emergency Contacts, or Authorized Individuals.
Coaches and other volunteers are not allowed to transport any child, outside of their immediate family, when acting in the role of volunteer for Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run WILL NOT release a child to private companies (e.g. Uber Lyft, Taxi Cabs, etc.) unless the driver’s name is listed as an Authorized Individual for that child.
In cases where Authorized Individuals are drivers, parents/guardians are responsible for ensuring the individual has a valid driver's license and a safe driving history. Children may be designated a "walker" if the child's walking distance is 1.5 miles or less. Children whose walking destination is more than 1.5 miles away must be released to a Guardian or Authorized Individual. You can add a new person to the Authorized Individual list by contacting Council Staff.
