Scientific Triathlon Coaching Policies & Liability Waiver

These policies apply to all coaching services offered by Scientific Triathlon. If you have any questions, just ask! We're here to help.

COACHING PAYMENT POLICY

  • You will receive your first invoice on the day that you officially start working with your coach. From then on, a new invoice will be sent every month on the same date as the first invoice, until your effective cancellation date (see below). The due date for your payment is seven days from the invoice date, regardless of payment method. 

Delinquent Payments:

  • If payment is not received within seven days of your due date, a €20 late fee will be added to the outstanding balance and your account will fall into a delinquent status. If your account remains delinquent more than 30 days, coaching services will be suspended and your account will be placed on hold (your coach will cease all work) until coaching payment has been made in full.  

COACHING CANCELLATION POLICY

We don't require our athletes to commit to a contracted length of time, and cancellations can be made at any time after the first 31 days of active coaching. Please note that all cancellations are subject to the following terms and conditions:

  • We encourage you to communicate with your coach before notifying us of your intent to cancel your account, simply out of courtesy. Your coach has invested a lot into his/her relationship with you.
  • If you do need cancel your coaching services, please email us at mikael@scientifictriathlon.com at least 14 days in advance. We will confirm your cancellation by email as soon as we can, and no later than two business days from the date we receive your cancellation notice. If you do not receive a confirmation email, we may have missed you; please contact us again to ensure we received your notice was received and/or to resend it if necessary.

Effective Cancellation Date:

  • You may cancel your coaching at any time. Your cancellation will become effective 14 days after the date of your notice (effective cancellation date).
  • Please note that you are responsible to pay all fees and charges accrued up to and including the effective cancellation date of your account. Any balance remaining outstanding at the time of your cancellation is your responsibility to pay, and by signing up for coaching with us you agree to pay your account in full.
  • In the unlikely event legal action is required to collect monies owed for goods or services provided by Scientific Triathlon, you will be responsible for and shall promptly pay all attorney fees and costs incurred by Scientific Triathlon pertaining to the legal action.

Cancellation by coach or Scientific Triathlon:

  • Scientific Triathlon and your coach reserve the right to cancel your coaching services. The cancellation will become effective 14 days after the date of our notice (effective cancellation date).
  • Should the athlete and Scientific Triathlon both agree to do so, the cancellation can be effective immediately rather than 14 days after notice.
  • If the athlete have broken any Scientific Triathlon policies or acted in bad faith, cancellation will be effective immediately.

COACHING FEE INCREASES

Fee Increases:

  • Scientific Triathlon reserve the right to raise prices on its coaching services, effective immediately.
  • You will be informed of any such increases immediately.

Cancellation terms:

  • You can opt to cancel your coaching services due to a coaching fee increase, in which case your effective cancellation date will be one day before your next invoice would have been sent.
