FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How will you ensure my child is safe?

Reusable water bottle
Lunch and snacks (lunch will be provided on Thursdays)
ABSOLUTELY NO NUTS IN LUNCHES PLEASE!
Basketball shoes (grip soles preferred)
Shorts or athletic pants
Extra shirt and bottoms in the case of an accident
Headbands, wristbands, knee sleeves, or elbow sleeves if preferred (athletes wearing a kara or bracelet are required to wear a wristband over)
Basketball (optional) with name written on it
What age does an athlete need to be to attend ZOR?
ZOR Basketball Summer camp participants must be between the ages of 5-17. Players will initially be separated by age but assessed based on skill level. Athletes performing at a level above peers in their age group will be placed in an older age category (after obtaining parental consent) to ensure athletes are consistently being challenged and attaining their true potential.
My child has a severe allergy, requires medication, or has accessibility accommodations. What are my options?
ZOR aims to be as inclusive and accessible as possible. Please indicate on the registration form if your child has any allergies, requires medication, or has any accessibility accommodations. Please let us know if we can make any changes to ensure your child is receiving the best experience. All campers will be emailed prior to the start of camp with a list of allergies. ZOR Basketball has a zero tolerance policy on nuts. Please let the camp staff know on the first day where the Epi-pen, inhaler, or any other medication is located to ensure quick response. A first aid certified instructor will be on site at all times. In the case of a severe emergency, an ambulance will be called to the camp site and the camper will be accompanied by a staff member. The emergency contact will be notified as soon as possible.
What happens if my child gets injured?
In the case of a serious injury, an incident report will be taken reporting the details of the injury. In minor cases, the injury may require rest and ice. In the case of a severe emergency, an ambulance will be called to the camp site and the camper will be accompanied by a staff member. The emergency contact will be notified as soon as possible.
What happens if my child gets into a physical altercation?
We have a zero tolerance policy for fighting and bullying, anyone engaged in such acts will be subject to removal from our programs without refund!
When should I pay the camp fees by and what method of payment is acceptable?
ZOR accepts email transfers, cheques, cash, and online payments (www.zorbasketball.org). All payments should be made before the first day of the session start date. A receipt will be provided which can be used for tax claim purposes.
Do you offer refunds?
We offers refunds for athletes up to three weeks before the start of a session. After this time, no refund will be given unless accompanied by a doctor’s note (we require the date and full name on the note). A $100 administrative fee will be charged to the account for all refunds.
