Lesson Guidelines

Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Weekend or Monday classes must be canceled before Friday at 5pm the week prior. We will work with you to reschedule a lesson, but may need 72 hours to secure an instructor. Refund requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis. If a participant fails to show up to the lesson, or provide proper notice of cancellation, the lesson fee will be forfeited. Please arrive on-time. If you are tardy, there will be no time added on to your lesson to account for your tardiness. Any lesson package purchased must be used within the semester they are purchased. For last minutes emergency cancellations, please call the Rec Center Front Desk at 331-3313, so they can inform the waiting instructor. All other correspondence should be made to the individual Swim Lesson Coordinator.
