Team Handbook

Please read the Team Handbook to learn more about the team's policies and procedures.

 

Registration

All applicants must complete the online registration form and pay the registration fee prior to training with the club. Applicants may pay online using their credit card (small fee applies) or by cheque. They may also pay by e-transfer by sending an email to track@flyingangels.ca. There is no cash payment option available. Select the “OTHER METHODS” link on the payment page and then the “BY CHEQUE” option if you are paying by cheque or E-Transfer.

Tryout Sessions

New prospects are encouraged to select the one week or one-month General Track and Field Training program option if they are unsure if they want to commit to three or more months of training with the club.

Facility Fees

The owners of the training facilities used by Flying Angels usually charge a fee for club members to use the facility. Some of the facilities charge the members directly, while others charge the club for the use of a training slot. Participants are responsible for paying the facility charges, whether the facility bills the members directly or invoices the club separately. Please check the Training Locations section on the website to see the facility charges for each location.

Family Discount

Parents who register more than one child in the program at the same time receive a $25 discount for the second or third child. Enter the Promo Code: FAMILY when completing the online form to receive the discount.

Financial Aid

Canadian Tire Jumpstart and Kidsport Ontario are two outside agencies that provide financial assistance to help children pay the registration fee to participate in organized sports. 

 

Contact both Canadian Tire Jumpstart and Kidsport Ontario directly for more information on their application process. 

 

Apply early (minimum 45 days before the program start date) to avoid disappointment.

 

The funding cheque may only be applied towards the registration fee and uniform items.

 

Members whose funding cheque arrives after they have paid the registration fee will have the cheque applied to the season that immediately follows the completion of the current season.

 

There is no refund for membership fees paid prior to the arrival of the funding cheque.  There is no refund for participants who do not use their financial aid grants before December 31, of the current year.

Volunteering

Members are encouraged to volunteer or recruit someone to volunteer for them at a minimum of two Flying Angels track meets/events or serve on a committee. Other duties are available from time to time that the volunteer may perform. The Volunteer Coordinator will email a list of volunteer duties throughout the year that members can sign up for.

 

There are incentives to volunteering, from membership discounts to complimentary t-shirts, and free entry to events.

Competitions

The coaches determine the track meets and the events each athlete competes in. The athlete (or parent) must confirm their availability on TeamlnkT for each meet they are eligible to compete in.

 

The club has established performance standards for some track meets. Flying Angels athletes who have attained the standards are encouraged to participate in these meets. Athletes who don’t achieve the standards may participate in the meet, but they are required to pay the meet entry fee.

Athletics Ontario Membership

Athletes who wish to compete in Athletics Ontario (AO) meets must also register with AO via the athleticsontario.ca website and pay the Athletics Ontario membership fee.

Competition No Shows

Athletes who confirm their availability to participate and are entered into the meet must attend the meet and compete in the events they are entered in.

Athletes who are entered, but fail to compete in the events they are entered in must repay the entry fee to the club before they are entered into another track meet.

Program Prices

Program prices are listed on the website. The club reserves the right to change prices without notice.

Additional Meet Fees

The club may charge fees to help offset the additional costs associated with some meets they plan to attend.
