Junior Class Policies
Open Registration. Registration for the next session starts on the sixth week of the current session. New students may start registering on the third day of the registration week. An email reminder is sent to parents when registration opens and class placement for the student for the next session.
New Students. All new students are required to get assessed for class placement. Please request an assessment by completing the Assessment Request form. New student registrations are accepted after the third day of registration.
Online Registration. Online registration is only available for students with a credit/debit card and a signed waiver and release on file.
Registration Deadline. The registration deadline for each session is 10:00 pm on the Friday before the start of the session.
Email Confirmation. After we receive your class registration/renewal, you will receive an email confirming we’ve received the registration with details of the registered class, class times and days, and fee for the session. Please note that the class spot is not secure until we receive payment for the session. Please contact the Front Desk if you submitted your registration (available only for current students) or a Class Registration form in-person but did not get a confirmation email within three days.
Due Date. The $20 non-refundable required signup fee is due upon registration. The tuition is due on the first day of the session. Discounts do not apply to the signup fee. We accept all major credit cards, checks, and cash. A declined credit card will be charged a $5 reprocessing fee.
Receipt. You will receive an email receipt for all credit card payments. If you do not receive a receipt via email, please contact us immediately.
Sibling Discount. The Sibling Discount only applies to the lesser of at least two full session fees.
Member Discount. To receive the member discount, students must be a BBC member before registering for class; students may sign up as a member and register for class simultaneously to receive the member class rate.
Changing the frequency of classes, e.g., 2x/wk to 1x/wk, is considered canceling. Cancellations received before the first day of the registered session will receive a full refund less the $20 cancellation fee. Cancellations received on or after the first day of the registered session will receive an 80% refund of the remaining classes less the $20 cancellation fee. Refunds will not be provided for full session fees after Week 4 of the registered session.
Students in Junior Elite, Elite, Team 3, Team 2, and Team 1 classes are required to register for a minimum of two classes a week. Registering for 1x/wk would be considered a partial registration that must be approved.
Absence Notifications. Missed classes are forfeited if a Front Desk personnel is not notified of the absence 24 hours in advance. Absence notifications may be given by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 425‑562‑2950, or in-person at the Front Desk. Please provide the student’s name, class, date of absence, and, if possible, the requested date for makeup.
Makeup Requests. We allow a maximum of two (2) makeup classes per student for each session. Due to the high volume of students and limited space, make up classes are not guaranteed and will be approved based on availability. Please allow us at least three (3) business days to schedule the makeup class. Students that show up to class without a confirmed makeup may not be able to attend class.
We cannot offer makeup classes for the Rally class as it is only offered one day a week. Missed classes are forfeited.
All makeups must be scheduled within the same 8-week class session the student missed class; otherwise, the class is forfeited. Only makeups for absence(s) in Week 8 of the current session may be scheduled to Week 1 of the next session, provided the student is registered for the following session. Students not registered fo
r the next session must schedule makeups within the same session as the absence.
All students in classes will be assessed during class in each session. An email is sent out with the updated class placement for all students for the next session at the beginning of Week 6.
Students must wear non-marking, non-black soled shoes. Badminton shoes are highly recommended. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE COURTS IN ANY OTHER SHOES! Badminton shoes can be purchased at BBC’s Pro Shop.
Please dress appropriately for playing sports, i.e., warm up pants, t-shirts and shorts or skirts. (No jeans, dress pants, dress shirts, etc.) Badminton apparel can be purchased at BBC’s Pro Shop.
Bringing your own racket is highly recommended. If you do not have a racket of your own yet, you may borrow a racket from the Club for class. Loaner rackets are first come, first served, and the Club cannot guarantee a racket will be available for use every time. You must leave your first and last name or a photo ID at the Front Desk.
It is very important for student-badminton development to have a professional coach teach students during their competition games, so our Club will sponsor at least one (1) professional coach to travel with our team for tournaments. Students travelling to tournaments may miss class when tournaments overlap with class schedules, usually on the weekends. Students are responsible for notifying BBC of the absence in advance and scheduling makeup classes as necessary. A coaching fee will be collected by the Club for the coach(es) travelling with the team.
