For year-round lessons, if you choose the FLEX plan, you have the option to make up 1 missed lesson per month. Lessons are made up in available spaces in other classes. If spaces are not available in current classes, we will add extra make-up classes the last week of the month. The FLEX Plan is intended for group classes only. If you are in a Private or Semi-Private class, we cannot offer Private or Semi-Private make-ups in the Flex Plan. If you are in a Private or Semi-Private class, and would still like to participate in the Flex Plan, you may, but make-ups will be provided in group classes, and as such may not be appropriate for children who require a one-on-one class.
There are no make-ups for missed Swim Camp classes.
For the swim team, if you choose the Flex plan you have the option to make up 1 missed practice per month. Practices are made up in available spaces in other swim team groups.
If you choose not to enroll in the Flex plan, make-ups are NOT given for missed classes or Stealth practices.
Swim Camp fees are due in full, up front.
For year-round weekly lessons and swim team, fees are paid monthly, one full month in advance. When you first register, your fees will be your first full month's tuition plus the prorated tuition for the remaining days in the month you start. You'll also pay the annual registration fee when you first register. With our EZ Pay system, your monthly fee is debited directly from your credit or debit card each month. If needed, you may change or update your payment information at any time. We will notify you in advance of any tuition increases.
Swim team practice schedules and fees include SwimKids observed holidays and planned closures. Account credits, refunds or makeups are not given for canceled practices for SwimKids observed holidays and planned closures.
For year-round weekly swim lessons, SwimKids guarantees 4 swim lessons a month. If a SwimKids observed holiday or closure (see calendar) falls on your normal lesson day so that you receive fewer than 4 lessons that month, you may schedule a free replacement class, which you may schedule at your convenience. If you register for a class after the first week of the month and will have fewer than 4 lessons that month, your first month will be prorated.
If you do not want to participate in the monthly EZ Pay system or do not use credit or debit cards, 3 month packages are available for purchase. Please call our office to purchase an up-front package.
You will be assessed a $10 handling charge on a declined Automatic Debit transaction. Expect to pay these charges in full before your next lesson. If transactions are returned 3 times, your auto debit privileges will be cancelled.
You will be assessed a $30 handling fee for a returned check. Replacement transactions must be in the form of cash, cashier's check, credit or debit, or money order.
We reserve the right to drop students from classes for nonpayment.
Except for conditions that I have disclosed to SwimKids Swim School, to the best of my knowledge there are no physical or other conditions which will interfere with my child's participation. Safety rules are enforced. While our first priority is your child's safety, we must inform you that swimming is not risk free. As a participant or as a parent or legal guardian of a participant in a SwimKids Swim School program, I am fully aware that swimming can be strenuous, hazardous, and difficult. I acknowledge and freely accept the risks and hazards, including collisions, falls and risk of drowning, associated with the participation in swimming. I agree to hold SwimKids Swim Schools, SwimKids Swim School, Inc., DC Swim, Inc., DC Swim Loudoun, Inc., DC Stealth, Inc., and iSwim, Inc., its officers and agents free and harmless for any injuries or damages arising by reason of participation in this program.
