Cancelled classes and Make-up classes

We provide make up classes for medical reasons or family emergencies when there is space in our schedules to accommodate your child’s level. Cancellation and rebooking of a lesson, requires a minimum of 12 hours notice by emailing aquatics@city.summerside.pe.ca or calling the reception desk at 902-432-1234. This way, we can give your little one’s spot to someone else who may be looking to schedule a makeup. The lesson must be taken within the same session that the lesson was missed, and no refunds will be issued for missed classes. Registrants are allowed a maximum of 2 make-up classes per session.


While we will try our best to accommodate requests for a particular instructor, we cannot guarantee them as the majority of our instructors have schedules that change every few months. But not to worry! All our instructors teach the same skills, just with their own personal flair! In fact, exposure to different instructors will help your children progress and succeed at a faster rate.
