Squad Policies

Enrolment Policy
All squad bookings act as a perpetual booking.

Your booking will automatically roll over from month to month unless you notify us otherwise in writing. Please refer to the cancellation policy.

The minimum enrolment period is one month. Once your booking is made, it is not possible to cancel for that calendar month.

Students are placed into squads based on their skill-based ability.

Cancellation Policy
In order to withdraw from your squads, we require written notice seven days prior to the end of the month that you wish to cease your bookings. A request for withdrawal inside of these seven days will not be approved.

In order to notify us of your intent to withdraw from your squad booking, please fill out a withdrawal form at the front desk. This will ensure that your request is met promptly, and that you are not charged on the following monthly debit run.

Payment Policy

You will be charged via direct debit on the first business day of every month, for the month in advance. The first direct debit for squads will be processed on the first business day in May.

Faecal Response Policy

In the case of Faecal matter being reported within the pool, we are required by law, to immediately close the pool, while we remove the faecal matter and treat the pool chemically.

This will ensure the spread of infectious disease is not possible. In this case, we will need to cancel lessons.

Squad Procedures

Links Wristbands
On enrolment into our Squad swimming program, all registered children and adults will receive a wristband. This wristband will link to our computer software program to communicate that you are an active member in our program, allow us to see medical and contact information and manage your booking. Please ensure that each time you and your children come to their Squad lesson that this wrist band is used to scan themselves into their class prior to the commencement of the class.
If a wristband is lost, a $10 fee will be charged for a new wristband.
