General Permission and Consent
General Program Rules
The following rules are applicable to all programs offered at the University of Regina (the “University”).
The University believes in providing a safe and inclusive environment ensuring mutual respect, integrity and honesty. Our treatment of each other is principled, open, transparent, and respectful. We are a safe, healthy, and supportive community that prioritizes the well-being of our Participants. My child (or my ward) may be removed as a Participant from a program for undesirable behavior that is in opposition to the core values of the University of Regina. No refund will be issued if the Participant is removed from the Program.
Electronic Devices: The Faculty of Kinesiology & Health Studies does not allow the use of electronic devices in their locker/change rooms.
Withdrawal and Refunds:
There will be a 10% withdrawal refund fee assessed for all withdrawal refund requests. A 50% withdrawal refund fee will be assessed for withdrawal refunds requested within 14 days of the program start date. There will not be any refunds issued after the start of any program except for relocation out of the City of Regina and surrounding areas within 50 kilometers or for medical reasons. If it is a medical or relocation withdrawal, a prorated refund less the 10% withdrawal refund fee will be assessed.
Discounts: Discounts must occur on the same receipt (same date and time). Registrations done prior to, or at a later date are not eligible for the discount. If a participant withdraws a program that triggered the initial discount, the customer may be required to pay full price on the remaining registration(s) for other programs. This will occur if the discount no longer applies.
Program Cancellation and Closures:
Please note that programs may be cancelled for any reason by the University of Regina either for a specific program date or in its entirety. If a program is cancelled by the University of Regina, a pro-rated refund will be provided.
Transfers are allowed within the same program area up to one day prior to the start date of the program, space permitting. Example: If the original registration is for Summer Sports School, the registrant may transfer into another Summer Sports School program but not into an EYES Camp or swim lesson. A $15.00 fee will be assessed for all transfers.
Specific Program Rules:
Additional rules may apply to a specific program for which the Participant is registered. Please consult with the University via the department or faculty offering that specific program for additional rules, if any, that may apply.
Three Strike Policy:
EYES believes in providing a safe and inclusive space for both all children and staff that are involved in the EYES programming, because of this, EYES has a strict no-bullying policy. To ensure this, EYES implements a 3-strike policy. Please note that the strikes are dependent on the severity of the action, determined by the instructor. This means a youth may not receive a strike 1 before a higher strike is issued.
Strike 1: Child is given a verbal warning regarding the unwelcome behavior.
Strike 2: Child is given a second verbal warning, and the parent or guardian of the child is informed via phone call at the time of the incident.
Strike 3: Parent is called and the child removed from EYES. No refund is issued.
Strikes are issued at the discretion of the staff. All staff are trained formally on class room management and classroom safety.
Examples of common unwelcome behaviors are (but are not limited too): name calling, pushing, not listening to instructions, compromising the safety of other children (such as leaning back on chairs or throwing supplies), swearing, or stealing. At the beginning of all EYES sessions, staff review rules and expectations with all children involved in the program. Please review the rules before programming with your child! Rules are posted in all activity rooms.
