Health Deceleration for Online Purchases

I understand that exercise can be physically demanding and if performed incorrectly can cause serious harm. I assume all liability for any possible injury caused by the exercises I perform. I acknowledge that I am physically fit and free from any illness or injury that may be aggravated by exercise and that I am aware of my limitations. I am aware that if in the future I decide that I do need to be instructed in the use of any of the machines/equipment that I should seek advice from a team member and that I will make Marjon Sport and Health aware of any changes to my health that may affect my ability to exercise

Equipment provided in these areas such as basketball hoops and goals are for their intended sports use only. Fire doors and emergency exits are intended for emergency use only, should be kept clear and should not be used at any other time.

Prices and details of personal training are available on request and are arranged directly with the personal trainer based on the needs and requirements of the customer. Personal training is available to anyone aged 13 years or over and is subject to availability. Block bookings once paid for are non-refundable and sessions need to be used within a 12 month period from point of payment unless agreed by the sports centre manager in exceptional circumstance with supporting evidence such as injury.

If the personal trainer and/or client are happy to exchange any personal contact details, this must remain in complete confidence and must not be shared with anybody. Personal training may only be carried out by Marjon staff, anyone else found or believe to be personal training will be asked to leave immediately. Additional terms may vary via each instructor and instructors reserve the right to refuse a new client without reason.

SWIMMING LESSONS
Swimming lessons run upto 49 weeks per year and are up to 30 minutes per lesson, however, we reserve the right to alter this at any time. A swimmer must hold a swimming lesson membership prior to the start date, and places will only be confirmed when full payment has been made. If you wish to cancel your place on the course you should email sportsreception@marjon.ac.uk, refunds will not be provided for time paid for and not used. Once a place is booked on a course it cannot be transferred to another person for any reason. Marjon Sport & Health reserves the right to remove anyone from the activity who is causing disruption to teaching and/or others, or who is affecting the safety of others/lessons and refunds will not be given in this case. Parents/Guardians understand that there is an element of risk to any sporting activity and give permission for their child to participate. Parents/guardians must make Marjon Sport & Health aware of changes to personal information, any medical conditions their child has, and is also giving consent for First Aid and/or appropriate medical assistance to be administered to their child if deemed necessary.

The swimming programme is based with guidance from Swim England however Marjon reserves the right to adjust its affiliation at any time without notice and make any amendments to the structure of the programme. Marjon Sport & Health also reserves the right to have students under supervision, assisting with classes. In the case of children’s lessons, swimmers may need to move to a different time to enable them to progress. You will be informed of this with as much notice as possible; it may not be possible to choose a specific time slot for this.

In the event of children’s swimming lessons, we ask that parents/spectators do not speak to the instructors whilst they are teaching to avoid disrupting the lesson. Any questions or concerns should be discussed with the programme coordinator.

Swimmers should wear swimming costumes or trunks and have long hair clear of the face by tying it back, or by using a swimming hat, and should have correct fitting goggles. Goggles are only advised for children who are going to be swimming with their face in the water, have medical conditions as this impedes water confidence with beginners. Although we supply buoyancy aids we understand that some children like to bring their own, please make sure that they are clearly marked with their name, we do not accept responsibility for loss or damage to these items.

Parents and swimmers are asked to use the lockers provided to store clothing and personal belongings. Items are not to be left in the changing cubicles and anything left in cubicles, preventing other swimmers space to change, will be removed and placed at reception for collection.

Extra support during lessons - With children that are newly enrolled into a beginner class, the teacher may ask for a parent or guardian to accompany the child into the water if they feel that extra support is needed, either for confidence or safety. Teachers are not able to provide 1-to-1 support to individual children throughout the lesson and so it is beneficial for children to be confident to participate in the lesson by themselves where possible – where children are nervous or frightened parents/guardians should be prepared to enter the water to support their child on a 1-to-1 basis. In this instance no contact with other children is expected; the parent/guardian is only there for the support of their own child whilst it is needed and once the child is happy to participate alone the parent/ guardian should stop entering the pool. In instances where it is not possible for a parent/guardian to enter the water with their child, 1-to-1 swimming lessons may be booked in one of our public swimming sessions, to give the child extra opportunity to become confident in the water.

Physical contact: As advised by the NSPCC we inform parents/guardians that there are some aspects of teaching methods that require a ‘hands on’ technique, especially in activities such as swimming. This type of physical contact will only be used in the following situations;
• Where it is essential to support the child for health and safety reasons when in the early stages of learning a skill.
• To develop a new skill or technique (e.g. placing the child in the correct position).
• To prevent injury

SPORTS INJURY AND OSTEOPAHTY CLINIC

SPORTS SCIENCE FACILITES
