Ocean First Swim Policies

At the Ocean First Swim School, we strongly believe in the power of a consistent learning environment which is why we encourage attending your weekly scheduled swim class as often as possible. We understand that life can get in the way, which is why we offer the following make-up policy.

Standard Policies:

Enrollment Policy

  • Swim lessons are on an open enrollment system so students can begin taking classes whenever they are ready and our schedule aligns. We operate as rolling enrollment, so your swimmer will automatically be re-enrolled each month unless we are notified otherwise.

Tuition Policy and Rates

  • Clients will be charged on the first class of each month for the entirety of the upcoming month. Our continuous enrollment ensures swimmers are automatically enrolled from month to month. Clients are prorated if they start during the middle of the month.


  • Group classes for ages 6 months-15 years are $30 per class (monthly fees range from $90-$150)
  • Semi private classes are $40 per person for the half hour
  • Private classes are $60 per person for the half hour
  • Group Adult classes are $35 per person for the hour

Drop Policy

  • Swimmers must let us know before the 1st of the next month if you/your swimmer plan to drop the class, or if there are any other scheduling changes to avoid being automatically charged.

Make-Up Policy

  • We require a 48-hour notice in advance of your absence in order to be eligible for a make-up class.
  • Makeups are based on availability and are not guaranteed.
  • We cannot guarantee the same teacher for your makeup class.
  • Makeups expire 30 days following the absence. We cannot extend past this date.
  • Makeups are no longer valid if your family is not currently enrolled in lessons.
  • You cannot schedule your makeup class further than seven days in advance. If you know you are going to be absent, you can schedule a makeup class before your absence date.
  • Other siblings can use the slot if they are also currently enrolled.
  • In order to get a make-up for your make-up class, the above make-up policies apply.

Referral policy

  • The greatest compliment you can give the Ocean First Swim School is to refer your friends. For each friend that signs up, you will receive a complimentary group lesson. Please remember to have your friend mention your name in the ‘referred by’ section of their registration page and we will also waive their $25 registration fee! This is one way for us to say thank you for your continued support and patronage.

Diaper Policy

  • We request that you please take your child to the restroom prior to the start of their class. For the health and safety of our students and our pool, the Ocean First Swim School requires all swimmers under the age of three AND children over the age of three who are not fully potty trained to wear a reusable swim diaper (also known as swim pants). These can be purchased at Ocean First if you do not already own one. Your child will not be allowed to enter the pool if this policy is not followed. In the event that a potty-trained child has an accident, they will be required to adhere to the diaper policy for a length of time to be determined by management.

What is Swim Club?

  • Swim Club is a class for Intermediate and Advanced students to work on competitive swim techniques, endurance, and speed. This class is perfect for students that are preparing to join a swim team, desiring a challenging workout, or simply seeking more time to have fun in the water!
  • This is a drop-in class offered weekly on Fridays from 4:15-5:15pm. You can enroll up to 7 days in advance each week. There are 8 available spaces.
  • Students can enroll for $30 per class or can use a make-up class.
