Register Early

Early program registration is encouraged since roster size is limited. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Preregistration required unless otherwise indicated.

Registration Confirmation

Confirmation sent via e-mail, otherwise your cancelled check or credit card statement is your receipt. You will be notified if there is a problem processing your registration or if the program is cancelled. Please make a note of your program start date.

Refund Policy

Our refund policy encourages early decisions, so as to not affect other customers or our ability to deliver efficient programs. All
requests for refunds must be made at least 10 business days prior to the start of the program. A 20% administrative fee will be charged per refund transaction. Registrations that require advanced tickets are not refundable. Refunds for Sport League registrations must be made prior to the listed league registration deadline. There are no refunds for missed sessions.

Program Credits / Transfers

To avoid the administrative fee, a customer may transfer into another program with no additional fee. A credit may also be kept on the customer account at no additional charge. Requests for both credits and transfers can only be made 5 or more business days prior to the program start date. There are no refunds of credits.

Returned Checks

A$25 fee will be charged for checks returned for non-payment.

Age Policy

Program participants must be the advertised age for a program before the program ends. All age requirements are set to benefit the participants and to make the instruction consistent and safe.

Trips Alcohol Policy
