Cancellation Policy

No refunds. Changes to registrations are to our discretion and subject to an $15.00 administration fee. In the case of poor registration classes will be cancelled and a full refund will be issued. We will do our best to combine classes and alter the schedule, so this is not the case.

Make up Lessons: We do not offer make-up lessons for missed classes due to illness, injury, late registration, conflicting obligations, lack of transportation or lack of success and/or enjoyment from the program. However, make-up lessons may be offered due to pool mechanical issues or instructor illness, if scheduling permits.
