CANCELLATION POLICY: Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance with Aquatics Coordinator. Weekend lessons or Monday/Holiday lessons must be cancelled before 5pm on Friday. The lesson may be rescheduled but a refund will not be issued. Refunds will only be issued for medical reasons, in which case a doctor’s note must be presented. If participant does not show up for a scheduled lesson, cancels within less than 24 hours or after 5pm on Fridays, the lesson will be forfeited. If a participant in a semi-private lesson cannot attend for any reason, the lesson should be rescheduled; otherwise the missing party will forfeit the lesson. In case of emergency (i.e. sudden illness or family emergency), immediately call 215-204-1675 or e-mail the Aquatics Coordinator. The decision on whether the lesson will result in rescheduling or forfeiture will be at the discretion of the instructor and based on pool availability.

TARDINESS POLICY: Lessons will begin and end promptly. Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early to allow time to change into your bathing suit.
