Missing a Lesson: Make up lessons are only guaranteed when a class is cancelled by GFD Sport Swim School due to pool or weather issues. In cases of illness or emergency we will do our best to accommodate a make up, however, advance notice of absence is required. Make up lessons.
Weather Cancellations: We DO swim in the rain, but not if the conditions are dangerous. We only cancel lessons for thunder and lightning. Any lessons canceled for this reason will be rescheduled or the cost of the cancelled class will be credited to your account and will be applied to future lessons. Cash refunds will not be given. Please assume that your class will take place unless you receive a call or email from our staff stating otherwise. If you chose not to come because of weather conditions, and we have not canceled lessons, we will not be able to refund or reschedule the lesson.
Refunds: GFD Sport Swim School does not grant refunds. Exceptions for make up lessons will only be made in extreme circumstances.
Diapers: Any child who is not potty trained MUST wear a special swimsuit diaper. Regular diapers fall apart in the pool. Use of re-usable swim diapers is encouraged and/or double padded bathing suits recommended.
Parental Supervision: Parents must supervise their children before and after their swimming lessons, and parents must stay on the GFD Sport property at all times during their child’s swimming lesson. CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER THE POOL UNTIL THE INSTRUCTOR IS READY TO START THEIR CLASS. THERE IS NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.
Use of Facilities: Families are allowed to use the shower and bathroom facilities located by the pool before and after their classes, but please do not take children over 5 years of age into the opposite gender locker room. All other facilities are for members ONLY. Non-members are only allowed use of the pool during their lessons.
Class Start and Finish: If you arrive after class has started, please walk your child to the area the instructor is teaching in, do NOT have your child swim across the pool. Classes will start and stop at their scheduled time even for late arrivals. If you anticipate being late, please call ahead.

In consideration of permitting my child/children to participate in swimming activities and instruction with GFD Sport Swim School, I Hereby voluntarily release, waive, and relinquish any and all actions for personal injury arising as a result of participating in such programs.
