Refunds and Cancellations
There are no refunds for SSFC programs. Transfers or postponements only; based on policies.
Group Lesson Make-ups/Cancellations:
Please do not assume class is cancelled if it is raining. Make ups will not be granted if you choose not to come to class. Rescheduling for missed classes is not available for month-to-month group lessons.
If Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center cancels a class for any reason (such as lightning or accident in the pool) a make-up time will be scheduled for any classes that are stopped prior to 15 minutes into the lesson. If Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center cannot provide a make-up time, a credit will be issued to the member’s Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center account. All families affected by the pool closure will be sent an email to their “on file” email address notifying families of when the make-up class is scheduled for. If a make-up time is scheduled, it is at the family’s discretion to attend the make-up class. No credits will be given if the family does not attend the make-up class. Also, partial credits will not be distributed for classes that exceed the 15-minute mark.
Private Lesson Make-ups/Cancellations:
A minimum of 24 hours notification is required for a make-up class to be granted; same day cancellations are not eligible for a make-up class. During a 4-day private lesson session only 1 make-up class will be granted for a pre-scheduled missed day. For an 8-day private lesson session 2 make-up classes will be granted for pre-scheduled missed days. Once your make-up class has been scheduled; that date and time will be the only opportunity for the make-up. We are no longer granting rescheduling of make-up classes due to excessive cancellations and no shows. For semi-private lessons the same criteria and restrictions apply.
Transfer of Classes/ Programs
There are No Refunds. If your schedule changes and you need to adjust your swim schedule you may transfer to a different day/time or session up until the close of business on the Thursday before the first day of the session you are scheduled for. Attempting to drop a class after the final transfer date will result in loss of spot and no option for transfer or credit for class to your Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center account. It is the responsibility of the family to contact the Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center for any changes in the enrollment of their swimmer(s) prior to the Thursday before the start of the session. There are no refunds.
