Swim Lesson Make-Ups

  • Makeups are available for injury or illness only. (We do not offer refunds/credits.) Makeups can only occur in a class that already exists and adding a student will not put the class over its maximum allowable enrollment. Because our available space changes, guests are asked to check the day before they intend to come to make sure space is available.
