Below are the terms and conditions on which we provide the START S.P.O.R.T.S services (the Services). Before you agree that we will provide Services to you, please read the terms and conditions. It is especially important that you read and agree to the Health and Wellbeing Commitment Statement.

If you have questions concerning these, please ask before entering into a contract with us – starts.p.o.r.t.s@outlook.com

Health and Wellbeing Commitment Statement

Our staff, agents and subcontractors are not all medically qualified so if you have any doubts about your fitness or capability to exercise or participate in a weight loss programme we strongly recommend that you get advice from a doctor first.

For safety reasons, you are responsible for correctly using all facilities and reading any applicable signs, and agree to keep to the conditions in the Health Commitment Statement, which can be seen in our terms and conditions.

Completion of a form: we may ask you to complete a form (the Health Check Form). This will record details, as stated by yourself, as to your current state of health, any medical conditions you have and any medication you are taking.

Evaluation of various health indicators: we suggest that you have a medical doctor evaluate certain indicators of your health, for example including your blood pressure, heart rate, basic metabolic rate and body mass index.

We have carefully considered what we can reasonably expect of each other in this Commitment Statement.

Your Overall Health and Fitness

Our aim is to help you to feel better and improve your physical health, and we try to make this as enjoyable as possible through participation in our range of sporting programmes. We know that everyone has different aims, levels of skill, tolerance and fitness.

  • Your health is always your responsibility. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure that there are no medical reasons why you should not embark upon a recreational sports exercise and weight loss programme. If in any doubt at all, you should take medical advice from your doctor or health practitioner.
  • Anyone who has any medical problems must obtain their doctor’s permission to embark upon a weight loss programme with START S.P.O.R.T.S. Anyone who has diabetes should inform us and always follow the advice given by their diabetes care team.
  • If you have or if you are concerned that you may have an eating disorder it is important to consult your doctor for advice.
  • If you have had weight loss surgery then you must have approval from your doctor or health practitioner that it is appropriate for you to join START S.P.O.R.T.S programme.
  • It is required that each member takes responsibility for themselves when doing any exercise which has been advised by START S.P.O.R.T.S or any of their representatives, either at or outside the group. If at any time while exercising a member feels any ill effects then they must stop doing the exercise and we advise they check this out with their doctor.
  • You must truthfully and accurately record the food and drink you consume during the programme and make this record available to us at each Session that you attend.

START S.P.O.R.T.S commitments to you

  • We will make sure that staff present provide the service’s they are trained to do to a necessary standard.

Your commitment to START S.P.O.R.T.S

  • While you are attending Sessions, we expect you to behave appropriately, respectfully and politely, and dress appropriately at all times. We can prevent you from attending a Session or ask you to leave if we think that your behaviour or your appearance is not suitable.
  • You should make yourself aware of any rules and instructions, including warning notices. Exercise carries its own risks. You should not carry out any activities which you have been told are not suitable for you.
  • If you are not sure how to use any equipment, always ask us before using anything.
  • Before you participate and or use our equipment and facilities you should get advice from a relevant medical professional and follow that advice.

  • You should not attend a facility or participate in a Session if you have an infectious illness or condition, or if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • To make sure you get the most from every activity that you do in the safest possible way, you should always make sure that you warm up properly and take time to cool down after your activity.
  • You should not take part in any physical activity that you may not be fit for. You are responsible for monitoring your own condition during physical activity.

Personal training will be completed by a qualified personal trainer that will have a clean DBS, Insurance and offer professional advice to their qualified level. Personal training sessions will be paid online and in advance, failure to attend your session may result in loss of payment. to prevent this from happening then please cancel at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Payment

  • By proceeding with this registration you accept the responsibility to cancel any direct debits set up should you choose to leave the scheme.
  • Participants paying a registration fee to join a free or reduced cost league will only be eligible for the return of this fee after the completion of the free season. This is to ensure that participants who sign up are committed and are not taking the place off someone who would make the full commitment. We count a completed season as someone who has attended 12 out of the 16 sessions.
  • A (£10) registration fee will apply to secure your place on the program and will need to be paid upon registration.

  • If you wish to change the Direct debit date from which you previously agreed then can you let us know via email on: starts.p.o.r.t.s@outlook.com.

If you are late for a Session or you cancel

If you are late

If you are late arriving to a Session and arrive later than the time set out at clause 3.1.1 herein and if, in our reasonable opinion, we consider that providing our Services will serve no practical value or will be unsafe for you in the time available remaining of the Session then we may exclude you from the Session. You will still be expected to pay for the Session however.

If you cancel

If you cancel a Session when you have booked a block of Sessions, as this is a group activity we cannot re-arrange the Session for another time and no refund will be offered.

If we cancel

On occasion we may have to cancel a scheduled Session. This may occur because of a number of reasons, such as that our Coach is unwell, unsuitable weather or a preceding session has overrun or our Coach cannot reach the location where we have a scheduled Session because of travel problems (traffic jams, etc.) If a cancellation occurs in this situation then we will extend the season (program) to allow it to be completed.

Rather than cancelling a session, we reserve the right to offer players an alternative session to the one they were scheduled to take part in. This may occur when we can source an alternative facility. We would always seek to make sure that this facility was at a similar time and within reasonable travelling distance.

Session cancellations due to weather conditions (Participants safety)

If a league venue deems weather conditions or the playing surface to be unsuitable for a session to go ahead, START S.P.O.R.T.S will follow these recommendations in the interest of player safety. At START S.P.O.R.T.S we also reserve the right to cancel a session if we feel there is an increased risk to participant safety even if the league venue remains open to the public.

If a START S.P.O.R.T.S session is cancelled players may submit a claim for a partial refund. This claim is made to the amount of £2.00. This is to reimburse players for the missed practical session, as participants are still able to access weight loss support throughout this time as normal. To submit a claim players must provide their league coach with their PayPal details. START S.P.O.R.T.S will then issue this payment within 30 days. Claims will remain valid for 30 days from the date of the cancellation after which time claims will become void.

Public Holidays or Facility Closure

If Sessions are scheduled on days where there is a public holiday or if a facility is scheduled for closure in advance on a particular day, then the Fees remain payable in full. This may result in you participating in less than the intended number of 16 Sessions.

Use of Online Communications

As part of the Services we provide we may offer various types of communications via, mobile applications, software applications or on social media accounts (the Communications’). Any use of the Communications are subject to the terms and conditions of any third party provider as well as the Rules set out at Schedule 2 herein.

We have a clear Privacy Policy concerning your data and how we use it. Accepting these Terms and Conditions is also taken as an acceptance of this Privacy Policy which can be sent at request.

Limitation on our liability to you

Our liability to compensate you for any loss or damage (in the case of loss or damage other than death or personal injury) is limited to a reasonable amount having regard to such factors as whether the damage was due to a negligent act or omission by us. Our liability for death or personal injury is also subject to certain limitations which are set in clause 9.

Limitation and exclusion of liability for personal injury and death

We will compensate you for any loss or damage you may suffer if we fail to carry out duties imposed on us by law (including if we cause your death or personal injury to you by our negligence) unless that failure is attributable to:

  • your own fault;
  • a third party unconnected with the provision of Services under this contract; or
  • Events which we could not have foreseen or forestalled even if we had taken all reasonable care.

Contacting each other

If you wish to send us any notice or letter then you should send it to starts.p.o.r.t.s@outlook.com. If we wish to send you a letter or notice we will use the address you have given to us.

Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999
