Holiday Sports Club – Frequently Asked Questions

Can I just turn up?
Booking is strongly advisable to avoid disappointment. If your child is not registered with us you will need to complete a holiday sports club application form before booking. Spaces cannot be held or booked without this form.

Do I need to fill out a Holiday Sports Club form again if I have done one before?
No, if we have your child’s details on our system from previous activities all you need to do is to update us with any changes, especially emergency contact details and any medical changes.

Can I change days?
Unfortunately no date changes can be made.

Can I leave or drop my child off at reception?
For security reasons all Children under 12 must be signed in and out by the parent or carer with the Holiday Club Team. If your child is 12 years and over you may drop them off as long as you inform us in writing in advance to say they will be attending on their own.

Can I book and pay over the phone?
Yes you can book and pay over the phone as long as we have your child’s up to date details on our system.

What if my child doesn’t like it, can I get a refund?
Unfortunately refunds cannot be given

Can I bring my child who will be turning 8 half way through the Holiday Sports Club to any date?
All children must be 8 years or over on the date they are booked in for Holiday Club

My child has ADHD or other additional needs, do they need a career and can you supply one?
We do not provide carers but if your child has a carer the carer is welcome to attend. You can contact the Inclusion department at Plymouth City Council for more information and any possible support available. Inclusion works – Claire Anderson 01752 307539

Do I have to pay upfront; can I pay for some dates now and some later?
All sessions have to be paid for in advance

Can I claim back my costs if I am receiving child tax credit?
As we are not OFSTED registered you cannot claim back the cost if you are receiving child tax credits, although every booking made will receive a receipt confirming your payment.

Can I transfer a place I have booked to someone else if my child doesn’t it want
Unfortunately all bookings are final and cannot be transferred to family or friends.

What activities are on?
The activities vary each day and no activities are guaranteed. Please see the Holiday Sports Club poster for the planned activities.

Will my child need swimming kit?
Swim sessions are planned on specific days which will be listed on the holiday club board and website. If your child wishes to swim please make sure your child has their swimming kit and a towel on these dates.

Can I buy food from the café for my child’s lunch?
Children are required to bring a packed lunch and are not permitted to go and use the Café or vending machines unless prior permission is granted.  Should you need to buy your child’s lunch the Grandstand café can provide a packed lunch of a roll (chicken, ham, cheese or tuna) with crisps, drink and fruit. The cost for this is £3.50.

What is the child to adult ratio?
This will depend on the activity but we aim for 12 children to 1 instructor.

Can my child choose what activity they want to do?
Yes, children will get a choice of a limited number of activities each session.

What if my child is sick on the day they are booked in?
Unfortunately we cannot refund or change days for sickness

Will the children be split into age groups?
There may be activities where the children will be split into age groups but this will depend on each activity.

Do we get a discount for more than one child?
At present we do not offer any discounts for multiple bookings.

Can I request my child to go in a group with their friend?
Your child can choose the activity he/she would like to participate in therefore he/she can choose the same activity as their friend.
