FULFILL YOUR DREAMS (FD) FOOTBALL ACADEMY – CLUB POLICIES
FD Academy will officially communicate via email. Each family is responsible for updating their emails on file with us and checking their emails regularly. Although WeChat may be used to supplement communication, it will not replace email.
All players must register via the online registration system, and accept the waiver, and the payment requirements. The online registration system will be open weeks before that particular program starts.
FD Academy will rarely cancel practices but if we do cancel due to extreme weather (thunder, lightning, or a heavy downpour of rain) conditions, we will send out information through email and/or WeChat 60-90 minutes before the session starts.
This policy serves as a guide for coaches, players, and parents about unsafe training and game playing conditions as it pertains to the air quality. When the AQI range is between 170 and 200, parents have the choice to keep their child home if they feel so under such circumstances. Practices and games may be canceled for players under 10 years old.
When AQI is above 200, all practices and games will be canceled.
In case of cancellation, FD Academy will send out information 90 minutes before the session starts. If no information is sent out, then the session continues as normal. Please contact your child coach or program coordinator directly if you want to be sure.
When training or games are canceled due to the weather, high AQI level, or other unforeseen circumstances, our best effort will be made to schedule a make-up session, but make-up sessions are not guaranteed.
Makeup sessions can be done at other similar program timing during the week
Missed sessions are NOT allowed to be carried forward to the following term unless there is proof of injury.
Refunds and credits will not be issued for events canceled due to these occasional conditions. If a player misses an activity or practice, there will be NO make-up, refund, or credit.
Safety and Health
FD Academy will make its best efforts to provide a well-supervised and healthy environment to reduce the risk of accidents.
Any child playing or behaving in a way that endangers other children may be dismissed from the activity without a refund.
FD Academy will not accept liability for accidents and requires that parents sign a liability waiver.
FD Academy will cancel the session when the AQI level is above 200. When the level is in the range of 170-200, FD Academy will reduce the intensity of training and players will be free to decide if to join the training/games or not.
Language of Instructions
FD Academy uses English as the language of instruction and coaching in all of its Programs.
FD Academy coaches can all speak the Chinese language fluently in addition to French, Italian, and Arabic languages.
