Attendance & Cancellation Policy


As of January 2014, SwimJim will no longer offer Make Up lessons, due to concerns over safety, quality, and availability.  Missed lessons are not credited or refunded.

Our alternative, we have created the Splash In program which will allow each student up to two classes per month at a preset times on a space available basis. Please see Swimming Lessons- New York City and Swimming Lessons- Houston for pricing on Splash In lessons.


Your child has a reserved time for his or her class. Please understand the instructors are there to teach your children even if your child does not show up. While SwimJim will do everything possible to find the perfect fit for you, it is your responsibility to schedule your lesson in a time that fits your child’s schedule. We would be delighted to change classes for you at the beginning of the next session if needed. If you need to withdraw your child for an extended period of time due to illness or travel, please call the office for guidelines. If you choose not to follow these guidelines, your child will be removed from the class roster and you will need to reschedule subject to availability when you return.


Please see makeup policy


If SwimJim must cancel a class, we will schedule a Complementary Splash-In at your convenience. In the event we experience a teacher illness or a problem with a pool/rental facility, we will make every effort to contact you prior to your class. However we may not be able to let you know until class time. If a substitute teacher is available, the class will be taught as scheduled and no makeup lesson will be given.


Billing occurs on the first of every month. If you wish to discontinue your lessons please give us written notice prior to the first day of the previous month.

Monthly tuition is based on the number of classes available in a calender month. Rates will vary depending on how many days are offered in any given month. SwimJim does not charge for Holidays that we are closed. After the first initial lesson you will be put on our recurring billing list and will continue to be automatically billed until we receive a 1 month written notice of cancellation.

All automatic debits will be charged automatically at the beginning of every month for the next month. If you start during a current session you will have missed our rollover period therefore you will be required to pay for the following session as well in order to hold your child’s class.

You may stop your lessons at any time by giving a written notice prior to the first day of the previous month via email. (Ex: If you wish to withdraw from December you need to let us know before the 1st of November.)

Notice of withdrawal must be sent to:

  • New York:
  • Texas:

We will contact you within 48 hours to confirm your cancellation request

Please note that your card will continue to be debited until we receive your notice of withdrawal.

Automatic debit paperwork must be signed and turned in on or before the first lesson. If it is not turned in you will not be allowed to enter the pool.

Please note: SwimJim reserves the right to cancel / change certain class times or instructors as deemed necessary.


Makeup lessons will not be offered for holidays during which SwimJim schedules and conducts classes. We will close for Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, the Thanksgiving Day weekend and a two-week span over the December holiday season. SwimJim will prorate those months accordingly.
