Late Arrivals

In order to ensure everyone's safety, clients arriving more than 15 minutes after the start time for any class or Personal Training Session will be considered officially late and will not be permitted to participate in training on that date.

  • Clients who arrive officially late without contacting the training staff will be considered "no show" clients and will forfeit all course fees or fees for that specific Personal Training Session or specific session within a Personal Training Package or Essentials Package
  • Clients who arrive officially late after making a good faith effort to contact the training staff by any of the methods described above will not be permitted to participate, and will be considered "Late Arrival" clients. These clients will forfeit only the pre-paid course deposit of $50 per person, or will forfeit a portion of the value of their Personal Training Package, Essentials Package or similar package equal to the non-refundable deposit of $50.00 per person.

  • Refunds for training sessions that cannot be rescheduled may be issued in the form of tuition credit only, which is valid for 1 year from the date of cancellation. 

Cancellations Due to Inclement Weather

If we are forced to reschedule a class, range day, personal training session, or other event due to inclement weather or extreme personal emergency, non-refundable course deposits and pre-paid course fees will be converted into a tuition credit when possible, and written proof of such credit may be provided to each affected client in the form of a gift certificate. Tuition credits will be valid for 1 year from the date of issuance, and can be applied toward other classes or personal training sessions. Clients who are issued tuition credits under such circumstances will be given first priority in scheduling and access to subsequent classes and training opportunities when possible, and we will make every effort  to accommodate those clients by offering multiple make-up dates.

Cancellation & Refunds For Retreats & Private Events

In the event that a private group event or pre-paid retreat must be cancelled due to low-enrollment below the stated minimum, or failure of the event participants to comply with our student participation, range safety, or other applicable policies, a non-refundable administrative fee of 1/2 the event total cost will be retained. Payment processing fees assessed through our affiliate credit card processing providers (PayPal and/or Intuit GoPayment) will not be refunded, as those fees are automatically deducted from pre-paid registrations by the credit card processing providers, and are not retained by B.A.B.S Firearms Training, or by B.A.B.S Base Camp.

Gift Certificates, Tuition Credits & Training Package Expiration 

Unless otherwise specified, Gift Certificates, Tuition Credits, and Training Packages are valid for a period of one year from the date of issue. Essentials Package and similar package discounts are not valid in conjunction with any other offers or sharpshooter coupon codes.
