Swim Lesson Policies

Make ups/Credits:

We do not offer make up lessons for missed classes. Program fees are non-refundable once registered. Instructors are not required to make up any lesson time lost, caused by tardiness of the participant.

Cancellations of Private and/or Semi Private Lessons:

Cancellations and re-scheduling for private and semi-private lessons must be communicated directly with the instructor. Failure to contact the instructor in a timely manner or no-shows will result in a deduction of a lesson from the participant’s lesson package.

Parent Observation:

You are invited and encouraged to observe your child’s swim lesson during the session.

When you observe the class please sit on the deck chairs/benches– do not stand or sit at the edge of the pool which is very distracting to the child and the instructor. Please do not allow siblings who are observing the lessons to stand, jump or crawl around the pool area. Also, please remember that food is not permitted in the pool area.

Toys should be kept off the deck. Any obstructions on the deck could result in injury or the inability for a lifeguard to respond to an emergency.

Start of Class:

We make every effort to start each class on time. For safety’s sake, if your child arrives early, they should sit on the deck chairs with their parent or guardian until the instructor takes attendance.

Please remind your child to use the bathroom before all swimming classes.

Registration and Payment:

It is very important that you sign your child up as soon as possible. Classes fill quickly especially on Saturdays. We observe all ratios as described in our swim lesson descriptions.

For group lessons, payment is required upon registration. For private and semi-privates, payment is required before the first lesson begins. Instructors are unable to begin a lesson without prior payment.
