A new time can be assigned (if available) upon return from the missed lessons.
AT-HOME LESSONS: If an instructor is scheduled to be at your home and they arrive to a pool that is not in teaching condition, no make up will be given.
Pool conditions that may require a cancellation are unbalanced pool water, such as too little or no chlorine, high chlorine or the pool recently shocked, high or low ph levels, cloudy or green water preventing vision of the pool bottom and/or pool temperatures lower than 83 degrees in winter or fall lessons. If the instructor feels the pool is not to teaching standards it is at their discretion to cancel that lesson. No other child shall be in the water while the at-home swimming lesson is being conducted. Beginners 2 Swimmers' instructors are not responsible for supervising any minor child around the residential pool area or ensuring any other child is water safe other than the swimmer to whom lessons are being delivered.
MAKE-UP POLICY: Make-ups are not scheduled for conflicts with other activities and/or vacations unless proper notice has been given as stated above. If the teaching pool at a Beginners 2 Swimmers location is closed due to any reason, a make up lesson will be added to your account.
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY: It is at the discretion of the lifeguards and pool management to close the pool due to thunder, lightning or any other weather related issue. It is at the lifeguard, pool management and instructor’s discretion as to whether or not to cancel or resume the scheduled class. If the class is cancelled prior to the scheduled time, a full credit for a make up will be issued and scheduled. If a class has been in session and either lightning is seen or thunder heard, the instructor will schedule a time to make up the remaining time of the portion missed.
If you have questions or concerns about the weather, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713.320.9705 for status on openings and closures.
