Members can now book online using their login details at www.smartclubcloud.com. Once logged in you can see the coaching time and dates on offer through the “EVENTS” section.

If for any reason we cannot facilitate an alternative group you will be refunded online.
Head of Household
Families are linked through the head of household who will see all related family members and be able to view and book coaching from their email address. Only 1 person can be “head of household” on the system. If you are not head of household you won’t see events. So if you are the person most likely to book your child’s coaching you may wish to email firstname.lastname@example.org and be re-assigned as “head of household” so that you can do this.
Where there is no adult member but there is more than 1 junior member in a household, one of the children will be designated as Head of Household (usually the eldest child).
Sibling discount 5%
If you children are “linked” through Head of Household and you book coaching for two or more children at the SAME TIME you will receive a sibling discount when paying online. The rate applied is 5% on your total purchase. For example if you have 1 child in coaching the cost is €80, two children it will be €152 (€160 less €8 discount).
