How to Register

Please register at the pool with the Summer Aquatics Director, Cindy Courtney. She is happy to help you with registration and scheduling.

Please note: Payment for scheduled lessons is due before the first lesson. This ensures that instructors will be paid for their time in case a client fails to show up for a lesson. If there is a family emergency or the client’s child becomes injured, it is possible to reschedule the lesson or obtain a refund. When an instructor must cancel due to illness or a family emergency, the client may schedule a make-up lesson or receive a refund.
