Cancellations

Due to operational changes related to compliance with WA Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines, it is not possible to make Fridays available for swim lessons or swim team make-ups in summer 2021 as this day will be used to provide COVID-19 compliance related staff trainings. Alternatively, in 2021 if swim lessons or team practices are cancelled by the County for weather, air quality, or other unforeseen circumstances, pro-rated refunds will be issued for the cancelled days as applicable following completion of swim lesson session. Pro-rated refunds are NOT available to participants who miss classes/practices that the County provides; only for those classes/practices that are cancelled by the County.
