Late Policy

Participants are responsible for arriving on time to their lessons. Instructors are required to wait 10 minutes beyond the scheduled lesson start time before the session is considered forfeited. If the participant’s’ late arrival causes the lesson to begin after the scheduled start time those minutes may be deducted from the lesson.

Cancellation Policy

Except in the event of an emergency, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for the cancellation of a private swim lesson. Participants may be charged for lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Participants should contact their instructor directly should they need to cancel. If a participant is unable to reach their instructor, they should contact RecSports at 512-471-6045.
