Fees are calculated over the Swimming Year and then divided equally over 12 months. When calculating the new fees, we have already taken into account summer shutdowns, a reduced time table during Christmas, Easter and part of the summer. We try our best not to cancel any sessions, as these cannot be easily replaced, but sometimes this is outside of our control. In such instances, we will notify everyone affected via email. We will only contact you via text messages or phone calls in case of emergency.
