SwimLabs® Swim School Policies & Procedures and Waiver & Release of Liability
There are no registration deadlines at SafeSplash Swim School. Students registering for classes can join us at any time subject to available capacity.
Annual Service Fee
An annual service fee per child will be charged when your student(s) are booked in classes. Each year it will be charged the month of your booking anniversary. The annual service fee is non-refundable and non-transferable for any reason. The annual service fee varies by location.
Tuition is billed monthly. The monthly billing amount may vary based on the number of weeks in the calendar month. Tuition is billed for the upcoming month on the 25th of the current month. Once you are enrolled in classes or monthly private or semi-private lessons, you will continue to be billed monthly until you notify us of your desire to withdraw from classes (see “Withdrawing From Monthly Lessons” below). Tuition for your first month will be prorated according to the number of classes left in the month and will be billed immediately. Tuition may differ per location, day or time.
Withdrawing from Monthly Lessons
To withdraw from monthly lessons, log in to your account via the customer portal on the SwimLabs website (www.swimlabs.com) and complete the withdraw option for your student. You may also withdraw over the phone. Withdrawal notifications received via email are not valid. In order to avoid being charged for the next month of lessons, you must withdraw your student on or before the 15th of the prior month. If you submit a withdrawal form between the 16th and the 24th of the prior month, we can remove your student/students from lessons with a $30 per swimmer late withdrawal fee. Withdrawals that are submitted between the 25th and the end of the prior month can be removed from lessons and we will refund 50% off your tuition with no late withdrawal fee. Withdrawals submitted between the 1st and 7th of the same month as the lesson(s) can be removed from lessons and we will refund 25% of their tuition with no late withdrawal fee. Withdrawals submitted after the 7th of the same month as the lesson (s) there will be no refund.

Packages and Other Programming
Packages may be purchased for private, semi-private, or “Build Your Own Group” private swim lessons. Fees for these packages and SwimJams, TeamPreps, Clinics, and other special programming will be billed immediately. Each time you arrive for a lesson, a lesson is deducted from your package or program. It is your responsibility to make sure that your vacations, appointments and other activities do not interfere with lessons or programs you have scheduled. We do not offer refunds for any packages or programs purchased. All packages expire after one year from the date of purchase.
In some cases, trial classes may be offered by the Swim School. In order to book a trial class, a registration form must be submitted, and all policies, procedures, waivers and other standard terms and conditions must be agreed to by the participant or guardian of the participant before he or she can participate in the trial class.
Cancellations and Refunds
For all package lessons, we require 24-hour notice to cancel or reschedule a lesson. If less than 24-hour notice is given, you will be charged a cancellation fee of $25 for non-Elite Coaches and $40 for Elite Coaches per absence. It is your responsibility to make sure that your vacations, appointments and other activities do not interfere with the lessons for which you have scheduled. We do not refund cancellation fees. We will not offer any tuition refunds for lessons missed for any reason. In addition, annual service fees and late withdraw fees are non-refundable.
In the case that a facility is closed due to inclement weather or maintenance, a make-up class maybe be scheduled (at participating locations only) or your account will be credited for the classes cancelled. All credits will be applied to future tuition for lessons at SafeSplash Swim School and cannot be converted to cash or transferred to any other party. Credits and make-ups may only be used at the SafeSplash Swim School location at which they were given (credits and make-ups are not transferrable to another location). Credits expire one year after the date they were applied to the account. If the location offers a make-up class, it must be completed within three weeks of the original missed class and is subject to availability as determined by SafeSplash Swim School. If an appropriate make-up class can’t be scheduled, a credit may be offered (at participating locations only).
Make-Up Student Absence (at participating locations only)
Customers are eligible for one make-up every calendar month due to an absence. The make-up must be completed within three weeks from the date of the absence and is subject to availability as determined by SafeSplash Swim School. No credits will be given if the student is unable to attend their make-up class and are not transferable to any other party.
Methods of Payment
Electronic payments are the only payment methods accepted by the Swim School. Electronic payments include credit cards, debit cards and EFT/ACH transfers (electronic transfers from your bank account where you supply us with your bank routing number and account number). Checks and cash are not accepted. You are responsible for making sure your form of payment remains current. Should your form of payment lapse for any reason, your student(s) may be withdrawn from classes at the sole discretion of the Swim School.
Tuition Paid by Third Party
Tuition can be paid through a third party and require a third-party payer agreement to be signed by the primary party. A credit card is required to be on file for all customers paying for swim lessons via a third party. Customers are responsible for tuition if the funding expires or we do not receive the payment from the third party.
Unless otherwise noted, each group, semi-private, and private lesson is 30 minutes in length. Monthly lessons are held weekly at the same time and day of the week. Private and semi-private lessons purchased via packages are scheduled based on the swimmer’s preference and the availability of our schedule. Clinics and other programming length may be different and are scheduled at various times throughout the year.
Please arrive early enough so that your student has time to stop by the bathroom, get changed, and get equipment ready before class begins. To avoid class disruptions, if the student is more than 10 minutes late, he or she will not be allowed to join class that day.
Instructor and Class Changes
We do our best to accommodate specific instructor requests. However, specific requests for instructors are not guaranteed. Instructor substitutions, modifications, and changes can occur at the sole discretion of the Swim School. If classes are not booked to capacity, we reserve the right to combine classes to fill the class. We reserve the right to cancel, change your lesson day, time, or level at any time at our sole discretion.
Moving to the Next Class Level
Students are rewarded with ribbons and promoted to the next class level upon demonstration of skills required at each level. Every student will learn skills at different rates. Therefore, students will be tested for their ribbons when their instructors believe they are ready.
Changing Areas and Restrooms
Children under the age of four (4) must be accompanied by a parent/guardian in a changing room or restroom. Children who are four (4) years or older can use the changing room or restroom on their own if they are capable. SwimLabs employees will not assist swimmers in the changing room or restroom. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to take care of all restroom and changing room needs of the swimmer.
Anyone entering the pool is required to wear appropriate swim apparel. Street clothing is not permitted. While it is not required, we highly recommend that little girls wear one-piece swimsuits.
All students who are not fully potty-trained and all students under the age of three (3) are required to wear a swim diaper. A swimsuit should be worn over the diaper. Even a small accident in the pool can close the pool for as long as 24 hours. If in doubt, PLEASE do not take the chance. Non-disposable swim diapers are available online at www.swimlabs.com and at the Swim School. If a pool must be closed due to your child’s accident, you will be assessed fees for revenue lost due to the closure. Please do your best to avoid an accident during the lesson.
Any student who has hair longer than chin length is required to wear a swim cap. Swim caps are available online at www.swimlabs.com and at the Swim School.
Unless otherwise directed by their instructor, all students should have a pair of goggles at every class. We do not offer loaner goggles. Goggles are available for purchase online at www.swimlabs.com and at the Swim School.
You must bring your own towel. Towels are not provided.
Watching Lessons in Dedicated Facilities
Each participant’s parent(s)/guardian(s) must remain at the facility during the entire duration of each lesson. Spectators may watch from the specified viewing area during their participant’s class. Spectators are not allowed in the pool area during classes except when requested by the instructor or during the designated time for Splash-N-Tell©. If you have questions or requests for the instructor, you may ask them during the designated time at Splash-N-Tell© week or leave a note at the front desk for the instructor.
Food and Snacks
Food and drink are not allowed on the pool deck at any time. The only exception to this rule is bottled water in a non-glass container.
