As evidenced by your signature, you agree to the rules listed below as a condition of your child's participation in lessons at Aqua Journeys. a) Safety before and after lessons is your responsibility. The property owners and management assume NO responsibility for the safety of your children, your visitors, and/or you. Watch your children and remember you enter the property at your own risk. It is your responsibility to inform your visitors of all rules. b) Please remember that you are paying for a time slot, not for individual lessons. You will be charged for any missed lessons. If you know you will miss a lesson, please call us as soon as possible. If we have to cancel a lesson for some reason (holiday, weather, pool issue), a make-up lesson will be arranged. c.) Please have your child ready for his/her scheduled lesson at least 10-15 minutes in advance. If you are late, we will try to fit you in whenever possible, but realize that you may have a shortened lesson. d) For safety reasons, do not allow your child to climb up the lifeguard towers or the stairs unattended for any reason. When your child enters the pool from the stairs, please hold onto him until the instructor will ask you to hold onto your child as he descends down the stairs. At the conclusion of the lesson, the instructor will ask you to hold onto your child as he/she exits the pool. This is to avoid an accident on the stairs or pool areas. Before and after lessons, your child is your responsibility. e) Prepare and educate yourself about our swim programs by reading our parent handbook. This will ensure your child can receive the most efficient lessons.
