I represent and warrant that if I am purchasing something or paying for a service from this facility or from other merchants through this facility that (i) any credit card or bank account draft (ACH Draft) information I supply is true and complete, (ii) charges incurred by me will be honored by my credit card company or financial institution, and (iii) I will pay the charges incurred by me at the posted prices, including any applicable taxes, fees, and penalties. I hereby authorize this facility to charge my ACH draft or credit card account.
Once enrolled into group lesson(s) or private lesson(s), you will have the option to pay via check or cash by the 28th of each month for the following month or the credit card provided at the time of registration will be automatically processed on the 1st of each month. A card MUST be provided and kept on file. Monthly tuition is based on the number of classes available in a calendar month. Rates will vary depending upon how many days are offered in any given month. Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC observed holidays will be prorated off monthly tuition.
If Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC is unable to obtain authorization, a $10 fee will be assessed to your account on the 2nd of the month. Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC does not make “reminder” phone calls regarding monthly payments.
Should you decide to withdraw from class, a written 30-day notice is required before you stop coming to class. To give a 30-day notice, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be assigned a drop date 30 days from the date of form submission. Do not fill out this form until you are ready to stop lessons in 30 days. Monthly tuition will be prorated for the next payment if form is submitted mid-month. I understand that I am responsible for payment whether or not my student attends classes until I notify this facility in writing.
Should I dispute a charge through my financial institution this will constitute a breach of contract possibly resulting in, but not limited to, penalties, additional fees, collection, legal action, and/or termination of any and/or all current and future services.
I have read and accept the general and financial policies as stated. I understand that by signing this authorization I am entering into an auto debit agreement with Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC.
THESE POLICIES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.
Cancelling Your Group Lesson Program
If you would like to withdraw from a group class, you must give 30 days written notice prior to the start of the month or you will be responsible for the full payment for that month. If less than 30 days notice is given, we will offer you an in-house credit toward a future class for the remaining weeks of the month, minus a $15 cancellation fee. If you give us 30 days notice, no cancellation fee will be charged.
Cancelling Private / Semi-Private Lessons
You may cancel a private lesson without charge as long as we receive 24 hours written notice by email to email@example.com. If you provide less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged for that lesson. Since the month is prepaid, this cancelled lesson tuition will be offered as an in-house credit toward a lesson scheduled for a future month.
If you are unable to commit to a weekly time slot and prefer to schedule private lessons on an as needed basis, please place your request in writing to the email above. There may be a $5 administrative fee per lesson added to your tuition for this service.
Aquatic Therapy Sessions
Aquatic Therapy clients will be billed the private lesson rate. I apologize that I am unable to bill insurance at this time. As I grow, I will look further into that option.
If you miss an aquatic therapy session, your account may be charged the private lesson cancellation fee if we do not receive 24 hours notice in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancellations by Lake Dragon Aquatics
If there is an unforeseen last minute pool closure (i.e. bodily fluid / fecal matter in the pool, thunder, or a pool maintenance emergency etc.) lessons may continue at the alternate pool location if available.
If there is a last minute closing due to inclement weather or other emergency, you may be offered a makeup day or it may be considered a day off and your billing for the month will be adjusted. We will notify you by email as soon as possible. Sunday morning lessons will be determined by 8:00am and Weekday afternoon lessons will be determined by 9:00am.
We offer 1 free make-up class per swimmer per session. This is based on availability and NOT guaranteed. If we do not have an available class that matches your schedule, you may be forfeiting this day. Refunds will not be given for classes that you have missed while we are in session. Makeups must be done during the time period/session that you are enrolled. Email email@example.com to request a make-up class.
You will receive an invoice for your swim lessons on the 20th each month for the following month. Invoices must be paid by the 30th, or your spot may be forfeited.
Payments in cash must be hand delivered to Nykia Hunter in an envelope with your name on it. We will email you a receipt once the payment is posted to your account.

One-time payments may be made by credit card for special classes, clinics or merchandise through the Client Portal.
Each month will be prorated for the number of weeks that we are in session. Please refer to the calendar on our website for scheduled days off. For example, if there is a holiday on your scheduled day, you will not be charged for that lesson. If you enroll mid-month, you will only be charged for the lessons remaining for that month and prepay the following month.
If you have changed your mind about enrolling in a particular class, please let is know by email as soon as possible. Request to cancel less than 24 hours before the session begins will result in a $15 cancellation fee. There will be a $20.00 fee charged for any checks returned by the bank.
There will be no monetary refunds given after a class session has started. Credits toward future classes are given for such circumstances as a medical emergency (a doctor’s note may be requested), family emergency or at the discretion of the owner. Credits will be prorated from the time of the resolution of the request. There will be a $15 surcharge for refunds requested less than 24 hours before a class starts.
The undersigned gives permission to Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC, its instructors/assistants, Days Inn, Baymont Inn and Suites, and its owners and operators to seek medical treatment for the participant in the event they are not able to reach a parent or guardian.
Puddle Jumper Policy
In an effort to be inclusive to families with multiple children and only one available caregiver, it is the policy of Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC to allow up to two children ages 3-6 in the pool during a Baby Dragon class wearing provided puddle jumpers. The children must either stay near the stairs or actively participate in the class without being disruptive to the students in the class. In addition, these children must be enrolled in a Lake Dragon Aquatics, PLC swim lesson of their own.
If your child is able to remain safely seated and occupied on the pool deck during the baby class, then they do not need to be in the pool, however, you may choose to have them wear a puddle jumper on deck as a precaution.
This policy is meant as a safety precaution and an exception to the policy in which family members cannot be in the pool during classes they are not enrolled in.
If you require this accommodation, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
