The website operated at getcoaching.ca, and any other subsidiary websites, and related services (collectively, the "Platform"), is owned and operated by GetCoaching, Inc. (collectively, “GetCoaching”, “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our”), a company incorporated under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Ontario Corporation Number 002545908.

GetCoaching provides an online platform that connects individuals seeking athletic training (“Client”, “Clients”) with various sports coaches and instructors (“Service Provider”, “Service Providers”) so that Service Providers can offer training services (“Coaching Services”) to Clients.

The Terms constitute an agreement (collectively, the “Agreement”) between GetCoaching and you, the person accessing or using the Platform (Clients and Service Providers collectively, "You" or "User"). By accessing or using the Platform, you are deemed to have read these Terms, and understand and agree to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not accept this Agreement in its entirety, you may not access or use the Platform.

By accessing or using the Platform, you agree that you are at least 13 years old, and that if you are between 13 years and 18 years old, your parent or legal guardian has reviewed this Agreement, and agrees to the Terms on your behalf.

If you are accessing or using the Platform on behalf of another person or entity, you represent and warrant that you have authority to bind such person or entity to this Agreement, and that such person or entity is responsible for any breach of this Agreement.


1. Description of Services
1.1 Overview
GetCoaching provides a venue that enables Clients, based on their location, training preferences and/or needs, to search for appropriate Service Providers and schedule one or more training sessions with them. Service Providers include, but are not limited to, Instructors, Competition Coaches, Registered Coaches, Chartered Professional Coaches, Strength and Conditioning Specialists, and Personal Trainers.

Service Providers must apply to be on the Platform, and in the process, create their professional profiles on the Platform. Once Service Providers have been approved by GetCoaching, their profiles will appear on the Platform for Clients to learn about their Coaching Services. GetCoaching also facilitates communication (initial and ongoing) between Clients and Service Providers through the Platform.

GetCoaching does not in any way endorse or recommend any Users, marketed or otherwise accessible through the Platform. We do not verify, review, evaluate, interview, screen or perform any background checks on any Users or the content posted by Users on the Platform, except as otherwise expressly stated in this Agreement or on the Platform. You should exercise caution and perform your own screening before connecting or meeting with any other User through our Platform, or entering into a contract or agreement with any other User, or selecting a Service Provider and Coaching Service.

1.2 Eligibility

To be eligible to access or use the Platform, you represent and warrant that you are thirteen (13) years of age or older, and that if you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you have obtained the consent of your parent or legal guardian to this Agreement. Make sure you review these terms with your parent or legal guardian so that you both understand all your rights and responsibilities. If necessary, we may ask you for proof of your age. If you are unable to provide proof of your age, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to halt your account or usage of the Platform.

1.3 User Accounts
To access or use certain areas and features of our Platform, you will need to register for an account through the Platform (“Account”). You will be asked to provide your full name, a valid email address, phone number, postal code, and any other information indicated as required, as well as to choose a password. In connection with any future use, you may be asked to input your email address and password from time to time. You acknowledge that we will use the email address you provide as the primary method for communication.

As a registered User, you agree to provide us with current, complete and accurate information about you, and to maintain and update such information as necessary to keep it current, complete and accurate. We do not take responsibility for ensuring its accuracy. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and keeping it secure, and you are responsible for all activities and actions that occur under your Account. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to maintain the security of your Account and password. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your or any other breach of security.

You should not register for more than one Account, register for an Account on behalf of an individual other than yourself, or register for an Account on behalf of any group or non-individual entity (except if you are duly authorized to do so by such group or entity). We may reject your application for an Account, or cancel an existing Account, for any reason, in our sole discretion.

Accounts for Service Providers
In order to join GetCoaching as a Service Provider, you need to register for an Account and create a profile. In addition to providing certain personal information, you must provide profile information regarding your professional qualifications and certifications (if any), post-secondary education (if any), the training services you offer and pricing for such services, and your schedule availability, among other information. Once we have vetted and approved you as a Service Provider on the Platform, your profile will be available for viewing on the Platform for Users who are seeking Coaching Services. Further, you can then provide additional profile information which may be helpful in maximizing the benefit you receive from the Platform.

We recognize the importance of responsible and ethical coaching, and we are committed to ensuring the safety of Clients. Beyond our Service Providers' athletic, coaching and academic qualifications, we require every Service Provider to provide a background check, ensuring that GetCoaching is a safe and secure platform. If a Service Provider does not have a valid and recent background check, we have partnered with Sterling Talent Solutions to provide an online, secure, and convenient way for a Service Provider to obtain an Enhanced Police Information Check (E-PIC) at a low price of CDN$25 (+tax), with results back in 1 business day.

You agree that from time to time, we may (directly or indirectly through a third party chosen by GetCoaching) conduct a periodic audit on the accuracy of your profile or your service offerings, in order to ascertain whether you have complied with, and are complying with, the registration and ongoing requirements of being a Service Provider on GetCoaching.

1.4 Independent Contractor Status
As a Client, you acknowledge and agree that your relationship to GetCoaching is that of an independent contractor and customer receiving professional services, and that (a) you have no authority to act on behalf of GetCoaching; (b) GetCoaching does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control the performance of the Service Providers or the Coaching Services by Service Providers; and (c) GetCoaching is not a party to any relationship, agreement, contract or transaction you may enter into with Service Providers, and will not have any liability or obligations whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries, loss, harm or damages under any such relationship, agreement, contract or transaction. You are ultimately responsible for selecting your own Service Provider. We encourage you to discuss and verify any credentials or profile information directly with a Service Provider before your first session, during your first session, or thereafter.

As a Service Provider, you acknowledge and agree that your relationship to GetCoaching is that of an independent contractor and vendor rendering professional services, and that (a) you have no authority to act on behalf of GetCoaching; (b) GetCoaching does not, in any way, supervise, direct, or control your performance of Coaching Services; and (c) GetCoaching is not a party to any relationship, agreement, contract or transaction you may enter into with Clients, and will not have any liability or obligations whatsoever for any controversies, claims, suits, injuries, loss, harm or damages under any such relationship, agreement, contract or transaction.

GetCoaching does not screen Clients, and we have no control over, or responsibility for, the actions or omissions of Clients. In no event will GetCoaching be liable to you or anyone else for any action or failure to act by a Client, a decision made or action taken by you in reliance on any information obtained or received through the Platform from a Client.

You acknowledge that GetCoaching has no special relationship with, or fiduciary duty to, you. You also acknowledge that GetCoaching has no control over, and no duty to take any action regarding which Users gain access to the Platform, what content you access via the Platform, what effect the information received from the Platform will have on you or others, or how you may interpret or use the content of the Platform.

1.5 Scheduling of Coaching Services
GetCoaching does not provide or perform Coaching Services. We facilitate the scheduling of training sessions for Clients with Service Providers. Not all the available Coaching Services provided by Service Providers through the Platform will be appropriate for Clients, and therefore, GetCoaching makes no claims about the efficacy of any particular Service.

As a Client, when making a request for Coaching Services, you are solely responsible for confirming the accuracy of all information provided, including responses to training questions (if applicable), and the training session type requested. By submitting a session request, you agree you will pay the Service Provider for all Coaching Services requested (including the rate and taxes set by the Service Provider, as applicable). Each request is limited to one Coaching Service. If you wish to obtain training in more than one sport or activity, you must make a separate request. Clients and Service Providers transact solely between themselves, we do not facilitate payment for such sessions. Clients are required to make payments directly (outside of the Platform) to Service Providers for sessions they book through the Platform.

GetCoaching has no control over, and cannot guarantee, the availability or performance of any Service Provider at any particular time, or any aspect whatsoever relating to the identification, request, or provision of Coaching Services related, directly or indirectly, to our Platform. GetCoaching will not be liable for cancelled or otherwise unfulfilled sessions, or any injury resulting therefrom. As well, GetCoaching cannot guarantee or control the availability of any Client at any particular time. GetCoaching will not be liable for cancelled or otherwise unfulfilled sessions, or any damages resulting therefrom, unsuccessful payments or costs of any kind related to cancelled or missed sessions. GetCoaching reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel a session booking made via the Platform.

Service Provider Rates
Pricing of Coaching Services for Clients is set by Service Providers, and is not the responsibility of GetCoaching. As a Service Provider, you agree that the rates charged to Clients for your Coaching Services on the Platform will be equal to, or less than, the rates for the same or very similar services you charge other clients who did not, or do not come to you initially through GetCoaching. The correct application of the appropriate taxes is the sole responsibility of the Service Provider.

2. Fees and Payment Terms
2.1 Client Fees
As a Client, your use of the Platform is free of charge. However, we reserve the right to introduce a fee for the use of the Platform, or implement charges for features of the Platform upon no less than 30 days’ notice. If we decide to introduce such a fee, we will inform you accordingly in advance, and allow you to either continue or terminate your use of the Platform. Any revised fees will take effect 30 days from the date of posting to the Platform, or notification to your Account. If you choose to terminate your Account after notification of any new or additional fees, you must do so before the 30 day period, after which such charges will be applied to your Account, if applicable.

2.2 Service Provider Fees
As a Service Provider, in order to be listed on the Platform and retain the benefits of your professional profile, you will pay an annual membership fee to GetCoaching (“Membership Fee”, “Membership Fees”, “Fees”). The Membership Fee supports the Platform, including costs related to marketing, customer support, and other related services provided to you by GetCoaching. Unless otherwise indicated, all Fees are in Canadian dollars. The Membership Fee is exclusive of all applicable taxes. You are responsible for all applicable taxes, and we will charge taxes in addition to the fees for the Platform when required to do so.

The first Membership Fee payment is made when you register for an Account on the Platform, and it will be billed on a yearly basis (“Billing Date”). You must keep a valid credit card on file with us, or use PayPal or any other payment mechanism specified by GetCoaching, to pay for all incurred and recurring Fees. We will charge applicable Fees to the credit card account that you authorize (“Authorized Card”), or other payment mechanism you select (“Authorized Payment Processor”). You agree that the fee shall be automatically renewed annually, unless the membership is thereby terminated by either Party. Membership Fees are subject to change upon 30 days notice from GetCoaching. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the Platform.

You acknowledge and agree that the terms of the Payment Processor will govern your agreement and interactions with the Payment Processor, and that our Terms do not govern and that we have no liability arising from your use of or access to the Payment Processor. We are not responsible for any arrears by the Payment Processor.

2.3 Promotional Credits
We may, from time to time and in our sole discretion, provide certain promotional credits ("Promotional Credits") to Users. There is no guarantee of, or right to, receive any such Promotional Credits. We reserve the right to activate, modify, or delete any such Promotional Credits at any time, in our sole discretion and without notice to you. Promotional Credits are non-transferrable, have no cash value, and will expire no later than 90 days from the date issued to your Account.

2.4 Refunds
GetCoaching offers Service Providers a 100% Money-Back Guarantee on their first year of paid Membership Fees. If, after one year of membership, payments received from Client(s) who hire you via GetCoaching do not match the amount paid for your Membership Fee, we will refund you 100% of said Fees. Our 100% fee refund can be claimed only once per lifetime per Service Provider. If you obtain a refund and sign up for one or more additional years of membership, the additional fees are not subject to a refund. If you wish to claim your refund, you must do so by contacting GetCoaching within 30 working days after your 1st year membership ends.

Coaching Services booked by Clients on GetCoaching are not covered by this policy, and are non-refundable unless otherwise stated.

3. Codes of Conduct
We believe that a healthy Coach-Athlete relationship is a crucial factor in successful training results and as such, GetCoaching is predicated on a productive environment for Clients and Service Providers to interact. To promote this, we prohibit certain kinds of conduct (“Conduct Code”, “Conduct Codes”) that may be harmful to other Users or to GetCoaching. Our Conduct Codes are designed to ensure a shared and understood standard between Clients and Service Providers for safety, accountability, mutual respect and common courtesy.

To the extent permitted by law, GetCoaching disclaims all warranties, representations and conditions, either express or implied, statutory or otherwise, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of title, merchantability, non-infringement, satisfactory quality, or fitness for a particular purpose.

You agree you will indemnify and hold harmless GetCoaching and its Service Providers, consultants, affiliates, officers, employees, representatives and agents (collectively, “Indemnified Parties”) from all claims, threats, actions, demands, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees), arising from or relating to your use of the Platform, your Content, your conduct in connection with the Platform or other Platform Users, any Coaching Services you provide, or any violation of (a) this Agreement, (b) any applicable law or regulation, or (c) any right of any User or third party.

8. Limitation of Liability
Under no circumstances will GetCoaching be liable with respect to any claims arising out of your use of, or your inability to use the Platform, however caused, for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, personal injury, loss of profits, revenue, data, goodwill, property damage, or other intangible losses resulting from your use of or inability to use the Platform, however caused. These limitations apply to any form of action or theory of liability, whether based on warranty, contract, tort including negligence, strict liability or otherwise, whether or not GetCoaching has been informed of the possibility of such damages, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed its essential purpose.

You further acknowledge that the Platform uses the Internet and other third party networks, and that, accordingly, any information processed using the Platform may be processed or transmitted over various networks (including those outside of our control).

We are not involved in the actual contact between Users or in the provision of Coaching Services, and you are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users. If you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release GetCoaching (and our officers, directors, agents, investors, and employees) from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, direct or indirect, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

You agree that in the event of any dispute between you and GetCoaching arising out of or relating to this Agreement, you will first contact us at info@getcoaching.ca and attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute. You agree that if a dispute is not resolved informally within 15 working days of your submission, such dispute will be settled by binding arbitration ("Arbitration"). Further, the parties specifically agree that, in the event there is a dispute under this Agreement and such dispute is to be resolved in a court of law, such dispute shall not be resolved by jury trial. The Arbitration will take place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The language of the Arbitration will be English. You acknowledge and agree that you are waiving the right to participate as a plaintiff in any purported class action or representative proceeding. You hereby agree that any claim under this Agreement must be brought within one year of the act giving rise to the claim.
