Swim Lesson Make-Ups
Thank you for being a part of the Snohomish Aquatic Center’s swimming lesson program! Whether you are joining us for the first time, or have participated in previous swim sessions, you will want to be familiar with the following information.
We understand that circumstances and plans can change and will grant you a full refund of your program fee if you cancel your student’s initial registration for a session prior to the first lesson day of that session. No refund will be provided in connection with any cancellation made after the first lesson of a session has begun.
Please understand that when you enroll your student in lessons, you are reserving a slot in a program that is in high demand and which could be filled by other students. As a result, your payment for reserving a slot in that program will be retained by the Snohomish Aquatic Center even if your student does not attend any lessons provided in the session.
All students enrolled in private lessons who choose to cancel or reschedule an appointment with four or more hours advance notice will now be subject to a rescheduling fee of $16/student per private lesson and $8/student per semi-private lesson. Frequent cancellations or rescheduling requests may result in losing your lesson spot, as these make it impossible for our instructors to maintain a consistent schedule.
Whether group or private lessons, it is your responsibility to make sure vacations, appointments, and other activities do not interfere with your attendance at any of the lessons in a session for which you have enrolled your student(s).
