  • Parents are asked to stay at the pool during the lesson, but remain in the seating area. 
  • We make every effort to hold group lessons at the scheduled times, however there are occasionally events outside of our control that force us to cancel group swim lessons, including but not limited to inclement weather, pool mechanical failure, air quality, and instructor availability. No make-up classes will be offered this year. We do not offer refunds for weather-related cancellations or for students who are not able to attend the full session.
