Once registerd, refunds are only given due to illness and requires a doctors note. This is necessary due to our very small student-teacher ratio.

Discounts: Generous discounts apply- $10-$15 off a second class, and 50% off for a third child or third class. When registering online, please allow us to apply the discounts.
Membership: There is an annual membership fee of $39.00 per family if due. An online waiver and full payment must be received in order to reserve a class time. Register as soon as possible. In years past we’ve had more than 850 kids fill all our classes and had waiting lists.
Make-ups: Due to our small student teacher ratio we cannot allow make-ups in other classes. If your child misses a lesson they can do a swim make-up class held on Saturday afternoons. If we cancel swim classes due to weather or other reasons, we will makeup the class either throughout the week or at the end of the session and in rare cases, on a Sunday. We almost never cancel classes. Always assume class is in session. If you’re unsure, call the gym one hour before the class (219) 865-2274. If your class is to start for instance at 2:00, and it’s pouring at that time, we’ll wait until 2:15 before we cancel class. Always come to class.
When an absence cannot be avoided you must call the gym prior to that missed lesson. Try very hard not to miss any classes, each class is taught in a sequence. No credit or refunds will be given for other missed classes.
Private Lessons: All private lessons are $30 for 1/2 hr lesson. Refundable only with a doctor’s note. There is a $10.00 cancellation fee.
When registering for multiple sessions: Rarely do children pass Level I or II after one time, most often children take Level I & II at least twice. Ask your child’s teacher after 2-3 days of class if they are ready to move-up, and we will try to accommodate you and switch your child’s class if needed.
